Signs Your Pet May Have an Allergy
When it comes to your pet, allergies can present themselves in different ways with different animals:
There are some signs to look out for when it comes to the possibility of your dogs are having allergies:
- They constantly have ear infections.
- They constantly have itchy skin.
- Their nail beds or lips are discolored.
- Their eyes are watery.
Of course, there could be a number of reasons why your dogs have these symptoms. Bring them in so that a veterinarian on our veterinary team can take a look and conduct allergy testing.
Your feline friends can show sings of their allergies as well. They might include:
- Scratching a Lot
There can be plenty of causes for these symptoms other than pet allergies. Bring your pet in for a pet wellness exam so a veterinarian on our veterinary team can take a look.
Once the cause of the allergies has been found, then it's a matter of changing things in your home. If it's a food allergy, then you can change the type of food that he is eat by eliminating the problematic food. If it's a certain type of airborne irritant, then you should look into an air filter/purifier and also be extra diligent about dusting and vacuuming.
Your pets provide you with so much love and companionship and it can be hard to see them suffer. We can help you make them feel as comfortable as possible. Then both of you will be able to enjoy your time together.
