Signs your Pet has Allergies

Pet allergies can develop suddenly during your pet's life. Environmental causes, like pollen, mold, and dust, can cause pet allergies. Reactions to food ingredients also cause pet allergies. At Natural Holistic Health Care in North Miami Beach, FL, we look to treat your pet's allergies through natural methods. Our vets will determine what is causing your pet’s allergies and how to treat them.

Pets React Differently Based on Cause

What triggers an allergy in one pet may not trigger it in another. Some pets do not display allergies until they've been eating the same pet food for a year or two. If an allergy is caused by food, our veterinarian can walk you through discerning which ingredient is irritating your pet. If your pet's allergies are caused by something else, our vet can help you determine what that is and how to reduce your pet's exposure to the trigger.

Pets generally do not excessively or compulsively wash their paws or rub their faces. These are common signs of pet allergies. Some pet owners have thought this to be a routine that their pet does before napping.

You should make an appointment with our North Miami Beach veterinarian if your pet is experiencing one or more of these other symptoms:

  • redness or watering of the white part of the eyes
  • irritability after eating
  • red patches of skin, especially under the arms, on the stomach, or in the groin area
  • thinning or missing fur patches
  • dry, unproductive coughing
  • vomiting
  • flatulence not related to a recent meal
  • swelling of the face, eyes, lips, mouth, nose, or paws
  • rough, smelly, or flakey skin

Some animals do experience severe allergies, including anaphylactic shock, but death is rare. You should not hesitate to contact us if you’re concerned about the severity of the allergy.
