What Causes Allergies in Pets?

While most pet allergies are rare, there are several things your cat, dog, or other pet may have an allergy to. Flea products, food ingredients, and cleaning products are the most common. Your pet could also be allergic to anything from pollen to common household plastics, although these allergies are not as common.

How Do I know if My Pet has an Allergy?

Your pet may display any one or more of the symptoms listed below. It doesn't necessarily mean they have allergies, but it is a good sign that something is not quite right. In any case, your best course of action is to take your pets to the vet, so you can know for sure.

Animals with allergies may display:

  • Itchy, red, moist or scabbed skin
  • Increased scratching
  • Itchy, runny eyes
  • Snoring caused by an inflamed throat
  • Paw chewing/swollen paws
  • Crust or scabs on the skin

If your pet displays any of these symptoms, let your veterinarian know. 

What the Right Vet Can do for Your Pet's Allergy

There are a number of things a good veterinarian can do for your pet's allergies. The treatment often depends on the allergy's cause. It may be something as simple as switching shampoo, flea treatment, or other care product. Your animal may need to be wiped down after spending time outside when the pollen count is high. Or, your cat, dog, or other pet may need a specific medication (such as an antihistamine) to help them make it through tough times.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."
    Maryem K.
  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
