Allergy and Itchy Skin Relief

Just like us, our pets can sometimes experience allergy symptoms. These allergic reactions may be related to environmental factors, or certain ingredients in their food.  

If you notice your pet’s skin becoming uncharacteristically red or itchy, this might be an allergic reaction. Other signs your pet may be experiencing an allergic reaction include:

  • Unusual scratching or itching
  • Discharge from the eyes or nose
  • Hair loss
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you suspect that your pet is suffering from an allergy, you should schedule an exam with your veterinarian. Your doctor will be able to assess your pet, discuss his or her symptoms, and conduct any necessary tests to help identify the possible allergen. Together, you can decide on a course of medication or a change to your pet’s diet to help eliminate symptoms.
