Allergy and Itchy Skin Relief

Did you know that your pets can have allergies to common environmental factors just like you?

Do you ever notice your pet’s skin becoming uncharacteristically red or itchy? This could be an allergic reaction. Pets can suffer from allergies to elements in the environment around them, as well as certain ingredients in their foods just like people can.

Some signs your pet may be suffering from an allergy can include:

  • Itchy, or red/pink skin
  • Unusual scratching or itching
  • Discharge from the eyes or nose
  • Hair loss
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you suspect that your pet could be suffering from an allergy, it is recommended that you schedule to have an examination and consultation with your veterinarian. Your doctor will be able to assess your pet, discuss his or her symptoms, and conduct any necessary tests to help isolate the allergy. Together, you can decide on which course of medication, or diet will help make your pet healthy.
