Pet Allergies

Your pet might suffer from pet allergies at any time of the year. The seasons can be a cause for worsening pet allergies, as can specific allergens such as food, grooming products, and even certain medications. Fortunately, getting help from a veterinarian can reduce symptoms of your pet's allergies and greatly improve your pet's comfort levels.

At Hooves Paws Pet Hospital in Aubrey, TX, our veterinarian can help treat pet allergies and reduce the risk of flare-ups. If you're unsure of whether your pet's symptoms are caused by pet allergies or something else, we'll also help find the root cause of other medical issues and find the best treatment options for those issues as well.

Pet Allergies

What are Pet Allergies?

Just like humans, your pet's immune system can be susceptible to triggering an immune response that can lead to pet allergies. Your pet's body might mistake a foreign substance as being an invader, therefore leading to symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Water eyes
  • Itching
  • Hives
  • Trouble breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Coughing
  • Changes in behavior

It's important to figure out which allergen is causing your pet allergies to avoid it triggering further symptoms. For allergens such as food and medications, your veterinarian will recommend changes in diet and medication routine. On the other hand, grooming products, pollen, and even household products can also cause pet allergies. 

How Can a Veterinarian Help My Pet?

Although you cannot fully cure pet allergies or prevent them from affecting your pet, you can help prevent the allergen from posing a threat to your pet's health. A veterinarian will conduct a physical exam and ask you questions to determine which pet allergen is responsible for your pet's symptoms. They can then offer advice to help your pet recover from its symptoms.

In addition, your vet might also recommend medication to ease your pet's symptoms, such as adding antihistamines to treat the symptoms of pet allergies. Steroids can also help treat your pet's symptoms in severe cases. These medications, when combined with lifestyle changes, are effective at treating your pet's symptoms and helping improve their health.
