Pet Allergies and Dermatology

Allergies are one of the most prevalent skin problems that cats and dogs suffer. Like humans, pets suffer from allergies triggered by environmental causes. However, unlike people, most pets do not experience respiratory difficulties when their allergies flare up. Instead, they develop rashes and inflamed skin, which can cause extreme itching. This is known as allergic dermatitis.

Fleas most often cause allergic itching, but other factors: can also trigger it:

  • Food ingredients
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Household chemicals

If left untreated, pets may scratch excessively, resulting in various issues such as fur loss and lacerations that can become infections. Bring your pet for a dermatological exam if you observe them itching or sneezing excessively. They may require allergy therapy. There is no permanent cure for allergies. However, numerous ways exist to alleviate symptoms and make life simpler for your pet and you.
