The Symptoms Of A Pet Allergy

Allergic reactions come in many forms. A pet with an allergy may have simple coughing, sneezing, or a discharge from the eyes or nose. They may have digestive problems if they are allergic to something in a particular food. They may suffer from skin ailments if they are allergic to fleas or a grooming agent. Some chemicals can also cause allergic reactions in pets. Other pets may be allergic to dust or other environmental agents.

How To Help Your Pet Avoid Allergic Reactions

The best way to help your pet avoid an allergic reaction is to avoid being around a trigger item. This may be hard to pinpoint at first and will require a bit of detective work to discover exactly what is causing your pet distress. Triggers may be found by using the process of elimination. For example, if your pet has skin problems, try changing their pet shampoo or a similar grooming product to see if symptoms cease. Avoid going into areas where your pet seems to display signs of reactions. If your pet suffers from allergies often, medication will be necessary to stop symptoms from occurring so your pet finds relief.

What Our Vet Can Do To Help A Pet With Allergies

When you make an appointment with our Vet, you will have the peace of mind that your pet's troubles will be evaluated in detail to help in the determining of triggers that cause allergic reactions to occur. Our vet will conduct tests to help with this process. First, an evaluation of your pet's health will be conducted. You will be asked questions about the symptoms your pet has been displaying, the frequency of reactions, and whether you are aware of the triggers causing them. If allergic reactions are severe, or if your pet suffers from them regularly, medication may be necessary to get symptoms to decrease or subside. This will help to keep your pet comfortable.
