Signs Your Pet May Have Allergies
Pets are precious and they are not able to tell us when things go wrong. Since they are not able to tell us when their eyes itch or their throat is sore, it is up to us to pay close attention to them and learn the signs of common issues like allergies. For those in the Scarsdale, NY area, Central Animal Hospital is a wonderful option for all your pet needs.
Signs Your Pet Has Allergies
There are a range of signs you can watch for to determine if your pet has allergies. The first sign is runny eyes and a runny nose. This is the natural response of the body to antihistamine that is produced when a pet encounters something that they are allergic to. You might also notice that your pet is sneezing or shaking their head a great deal. They may also have trouble breathing or wheeze often. These are all signs that there is something that your pet is allergic to that they are trying to combat or that their body is trying to ward off.
Treatments for Pet Allergies
Just like there are treatments for people with allergies, there are allergy tests that can be performed on your pet and that can then tell you what your pet is allergic to so that the appropriate measures can be taken to help treat their allergies. In some cases, an allergy pill is going to be your best bet to combat pet allergies. In cases when your pet is dealing with an allergic reaction, you may have to seek the help of a veterinarian or an emergency veterinarian to help combat those symptoms. An allergic reaction is not necessarily the same thing as an allergy to something like pollen or dust.
At Central Animal Hospital we are ready and willing to help you find the treatment that is going to help your pet breathe easier. You can contact us at (914) 723-1250 to set up an appointment or to see what services we offer to help keep your pet healthy.
