If you have ever had allergies, you know how miserable it can be. Did you know that pets can have allergies too? Owners should understand how allergies impact their pet's overall health. At Brandywine Veterinary Hospital in Chadds Ford and Greenville, we can help alleviate your pet’s allergies.
Your Pet Has Itchy Skin
If your pet has skin irritation, it is most likely a sign of allergies. For example, you may notice your pet constantly scratching a specific spot, or there may even be a red spot on the skin. We can help address this issue if your pet is showing this symptom.
Have you noticed that certain spots on your pet's coat aren't as thick as they used to be? Unfortunately, there may be some bald spots as well. The loss of hair is often the result of constant itching or certain chemicals.
Ear, Eye, and Nose Issues
It's not uncommon to have ear problems due to allergies. Even if it starts as itching, ear infections are common in pets with severe allergies. You may also want to look inside your pet's ears to look for discharge. With environmental changes, such as increased pollen levels, pets can experience watery eyes and noses. If you've ever experienced such feelings, then you know what your pet is going through.
Treatment For Pet Allergies
Our veterinarians provide tailored treatments for your pets if they have allergies, ranging from skin and blood tests, or changing your pet's diet if it has a food allergy. Your pet may also be given medication or allergy shots to alleviate the symptoms.
