Signs of an Allergic Reaction

There are several symptoms that indicate a cat or dog may have an allergy they are suffering from. A pet with a food allergy will likely have digestive distress in the form of vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. A pet that has a skin allergy will have visible marks on their body, such as bumps or hives or they may scratch at their coat constantly. Some pets will have cold-like symptoms like sneezing, coughing, or a discharge from the eyes.

Steps To Help Your Pet Deal with Allergies

If you think your pet has an allergy, it is important to determine what is causing it to occur so it can be avoided as much as possible. This can be done with the process of elimination. For example, if your pet has a skin ailment, change the shampoo you normally use to wash them to see if symptoms subside. If not, a different trigger is causing the problem. Keep a journal of symptoms to show to our veterinarian as this may help in pinpointing the trigger and appropriate treatment. Consider investing in an air cleaner in your home if your pet suffers from an environmental allergy as this will minimize symptoms considerably.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
