At Clinton Hill Animal Clinic, we can help provide pet allergy treatment for Brooklyn, NY, pet owners. We identify the cause of your pet's allergic reactions and provide treatment accordingly with help from a “veterinarian near me.”

Pet Allergies

Types and Signs of Allergies

The causes of household pets' allergies are similar to those affecting humans. Allergies to insects, especially fleas and ticks, foods, pollen, dander, and mites are common among pets

While common allergic reactions in humans are red eyes and wheezing, animals also display their allergic reactions as skin irritations, leading them to scratch and lick themselves excessively in irritated areas. Red eyes and sneezing can also be symptoms of pet allergies, as can hair loss, upset stomach, or diarrhea.

Allergy Diagnosis

To diagnose a pet for allergies, we may assess your pet's symptoms, conduct a physical exam that includes pet dermatology, and review his medical history. The diagnosis of food allergies may take longer and be more complicated since food allergies typically require restricted diets for proper diagnosis.

Allergy Treatment

After reviewing the test results, our team can offer your pet a treatment plan and medication to overcome their allergies. Some treatments can help provide symptom relief, while others focus on preventing further exposure to the allergen.

Flea preventives and home treatment work well in preventing flea exposure, though antihistamines or corticosteroids may be required. You can help ease allergies to pollens, mold, and mildew by changes in home cleaning practices, but eliminating the allergens is difficult, so we often use symptom-focused treatments such as daily oral medications.
