Understanding Pet Allergies

Pet allergies occur when an animal's immune system becomes hypersensitive and overreactive due to allergens in the environment or in certain foods. As a result, he or she may experience sneezing, itching, and watery eyes. Some animals may also engage in behaviors like licking their paws, pain, inflammation, and shedding.

What Are the Different Types of Pet Allergies?

Pets have allergies much like humans, so do they react to the same allergens? You might be surprised to learn that they do. Your cat or dog may have food allergies, which can be easily eliminated by switching to a new food brand that doesn't contain the ingredients that are causing reactions. Along with that, he or she may be experiencing skin allergies due to fleas or ticks and seasonal allergies from environmental factors like dust, pollen, and mold.

When you visit us, we will speak with you about your pet’s symptoms and may even perform a physical exam. Once we determine what is causing its reaction, our vets will provide the necessary pet allergy treatment to provide relief.
