Allergy

Allergies can inflict uncomfortable symptoms to pets in the same manner as they do to people. Contact All Care Animal Clinic in West Palm Beach if your pet is experiencing signs of an Allergy. Here is some information to read over about allergic symptoms, how to keep them from causing problems for your pet, and how vet care can help when needed.

Allergy

The Signs of an Allergic Reaction in a Pet

It is important to be aware of any behavioral changes that your dog or cat displays as this could be an indicator that they are suffering from a medical ailment, including the possibility of an allergic reaction. A pet with a food allergy will most likely have digestive difficulties after eating something they are allergic to. This can include vomiting or elimination problems such as diarrhea or constipation. A pet with environmental allergies will have symptoms much like those of a common cold, such as sneezing, wheezing, or coughing. A pet with a skin allergy may have a rash or itchiness of the skin.

How to Keep Your Pet Comfortable When They Have an Allergy

A pet with an allergy needs care when symptoms are noticeable. It is best to make an appointment with our veterinarian to obtain medication to treat allergy symptoms quickly and effectively. In between flare-ups, avoid triggers so your pet has less of a risk of uncomfortable symptoms. Use an air filter in your heating system and air conditioning unit to reduce airborne allergens in the home. Consider changing your pet's diet if a food allergy is known. Reduce the frequency of bathing your pet if they suffer from a skin allergy as they can wash away necessary oils that protect their body from skin problems.

What Our Vet Can Do To Help a Pet That Suffers From An Allergy

At the first signs of an allergic reaction, bring your pet to our practice for an evaluation of their condition. Our Vet will run tests to help pinpoint triggers that are causing allergy symptoms to occur so you can avoid them in the future. Medication is likely to be prescribed to treat a pet with severe allergic reactions. This medicine should be kept on hand so you can administer it to your pet immediately if needed. Our veterinarian is available to handle medical emergencies as well as routine well-visits and preventative treatments to keep your pet healthy.
