Helping Your Pet With Their Pet Allergies

Helping Your Pet with Their Pet Allergies

We are used to people having various allergies, including being allergic to pets. However, pets also have some allergies of their own. It may be difficult to notice because only about 10% of pets have allergies. Pets are usually allergic to plants, food, fleas, dust, mites, and even other pets. If your pet is suffering from allergies bring it to Trilby Animal Hospital in Toledo, OH.

What Are Your Pet’s Allergy Symptoms?

The following symptoms may be an indication that your pet has an allergy:

  • Skin or ear infections
  • Chewing on paws
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea
  • Inflamed, itchy, or red skin

When your pet is allergic to other pets, it usually takes the form of respiratory problems or skin symptoms. If your pet shows any of the above symptoms, contact our veterinarian at Trilby Animal Hospital to schedule an appointment.

Help Your Pet with Allergies

Some of the measures our veterinarian may recommend include the following:

1. Test and Treat the Allergy

While you may not be able to treat an allergy, our animal health team will help you identify the specific allergy and provide some ways to manage it. Furthermore, we may offer natural therapies or pharmaceutical options to help manage the allergy.

2. Monitor Your Pet’s Diet

Certain foods can cause allergies among pets. At Trilby Animal Hospital, we can help you to narrow down the possibilities and eliminate the food that is causing an allergic reaction.

3. Keep Your Pet and Home Clean

You should also maintain your home and pet’s proper hygiene to help minimize its contact with allergens. Your pet will stop or itch less after a wash. A clean home eliminates allergens and promotes good air circulation.
