Signs Your Pet Has Allergies

Tell-Tale Signs Your Pet Is Suffering from Allergies

Spring and summer bring warm weather, but also a lot of pollen. Many people suffer from allergies, and even if you don’t suffer from seasonal sneezes, you probably know someone who does. Did you know that pets can suffer seasonal allergies as well? If you believe your pet is suffering from pollen allergies or is having allergic reactions to something else, visit our veterinarian right away. Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in Brooklyn is ready to help, so get in touch!

Veterinary care can help your pet enjoy any season. Our veterinarian can help you identify things that might be causing allergic reactions, including pollen, mold, chemicals, and other allergens.

By the way, if your pet appears to be suffering a severe allergic reaction, perhaps accompanied by swelling or breathing difficulties, visit an animal hospital for emergency care right away!

Pet Allergy Symptoms (Seasonal or Otherwise)

Among humans, sneezing, coughing, and red eyes are perhaps the most common symptoms of allergies. When it comes to pets, they may also suffer coughing, sneezing, and red eyes. Your pet may experience a dripping nose, just like us humans.

That said, skin inflammations and rashes are often more common among pets than coughing and sneezing. Pets suffering from allergies also commonly experience diarrhea and vomiting. This is especially true in the case of allergic reactions to food.

Identifying the cause of your pet’s allergies may take some work, but our veterinarian can help. You may think that pollen is the cause of your pet’s allergies, but the allergen bugging your cat, dog, or other pet may be mold in your HVAC system or the floor cleaner you use in the kitchen.

That’s why it’s smart to speak with a veterinarian at our animal hospital. Identifying the specific allergens causing a reaction in your pets may take a bit of investigative work. Veterinary advice may be in order. Our vet may also prescribe oral medications or make recommendations (such as skipping the park when pollen is high).

If you live in or near Brooklyn, contact us at Clinton Hill Animal Clinic to speak with our veterinarian about pet allergies!
