Just like humans, our cherished four-legged companions can suffer from allergies. Recognizing and addressing these sensitivities helps our pets lead comfortable, itch-free lives.
At Arab Veterinary Hospital, we’re well-versed in the intricacies of pet allergies and have the skills and expertise to diagnose and treat them effectively.
Pets can develop allergies from various sources, including certain foods, environmental factors like pollen or mold, flea bites, and more. Common signs your pet might be battling allergies include excessive scratching, inflamed skin, recurrent ear infections, hair loss, and gastrointestinal issues. While these symptoms can have many causes, regular check-ups and keen observation can aid in early detection, allowing for timely intervention.
Armed with a deep understanding of the causes and manifestations of pet allergies, we offer a range of treatment solutions tailored to each pet’s needs. Options include:
Oral Medications: Drugs such as Apoquel can help manage the itchiness and inflammation associated with allergies.
Non-Steroidal Injections: Treatments like Cytopoint relieve allergy symptoms for extended periods.
Medicated Shampoos: Skin-specific treatments can alleviate skin discomfort and significantly benefit pets with sensitive or inflamed skin.
We often recommend intradermal pet allergy testing at a specialized referral laboratory for a comprehensive understanding of your pet’s sensitivities. This can isolate specific allergens causing discomfort, allowing for precise treatments.
Every pet deserves a life free from the distress of allergies. With our dedicated team, state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, and commitment to your pet’s well-being, Arab Veterinary Hospital stands ready to assist in the journey towards an allergy-free life for your cherished companion.
