Dog and cat allergies are often the results of:
Flea allergies in dogs and cats make them itch like crazy. The allergen is usually the flea saliva that causes itching. If your cat or dog has a flea allergy, you’ll notice intense itching from one bite.
Pollen and dust are some of the most common pet allergies. If your pet never goes outside, laundry detergents or cleaning products could be the culprit. If the allergy symptoms come and go with the seasons, your pet probably has a seasonal environmental allergy.
Food allergies are often challenging to diagnose. Dogs often develop a sensitivity to potatoes, rice, corn, or grains in their food. They rarely, but sometimes, suffer from protein food sensitivities to beef, chicken, pork, or turkey.
Allergy symptoms in pets include:
City by the Sea Veterinary Hospital performs different activities and tests to diagnose your dog or cat allergies, including:
Pet allergies are easiest to treat when we know the root of the problem. If you know your pet is sensitive to flea bites, it’s important to stay updated with regular flea preventatives. Lifestyle changes like washing your dog with hypoallergenic shampoo, wiping their paws, and keeping their bed clean can help a dog with environmental allergies. If your animals have a food allergy, it’s essential always to read food labels. Brands may change their recipe without notice or use different proteins. When we have a plan in place, we can help your pet live its best life without itching from allergies.
