What Causes Allergic Reactions In Pets
Like people, pets can suffer from an allergic reaction for a number of reasons. Some pets are allergic to specific ingredients in foods. Others may have seasonal allergies, which mimic cold symptoms. Pets can be allergic to grooming supplies or chemicals. A pet with a flea problem may have an allergic reaction to bites obtained by these parasites. When allergic reactions occur, symptoms are often present to help you pinpoint which type of allergy your pet is experiencing.
The Symptoms Associated With An Allergy
A pet with a food allergy will likely suffer from digestive troubles. Your pet may vomit, have difficulty keeping food down, wheeze after eating a specific food or have elimination troubles in the form of diarrhea or constipation. A pet with a seasonal allergy may have a discharge from their eyes or nose. They will likely cough and sneeze. A pet that is allergic to dust will have similar symptoms. Flea allergies are usually noticed when a pet scratches and bites at their skin constantly. There may also be a rash noticed upon their skin. Chemical reactions also cause skin difficulties.
