Signs your Pet has Allergies


The Signs of Pet Allergies

Millions of people suffer from allergies and many pets do too. Pets just make things a little more difficult because they cannot tell us how they are feeling. Therefore, it is important to take note of any signs that your pet is suffering from allergies. Talk to our veterinarians at Ashworth Road Animal Hospital in West Des Moines about any irritation, rash, skin problems, licking, ear infections, or other issues you notice with your pet. These could be indications of allergies.

The Symptoms of Pet Allergies

Many allergies cause itching, which leads your pet to scratch and bite because of the skin irritation. The skin may develop a rash and even become infected due to the scratching. Our veterinarians are trained in dermatology and can get to the root of the problem. In addition to skin issues, allergies may cause excessive shedding, paw licking, scooting, licking of the anal region, chronic ear infections, and respiratory problems. Sometimes, these symptoms may occur at certain points in the year, just as people suffer from seasonal allergies. Keep a log and track the days when your pet is experiencing symptoms and bring it to your appointment at our animal hospital.

Pet Allergy Treatment

Our team of veterinarians is trained in dermatology and they can help manage your pet’s allergies. We work with owners to get to the cause of the allergies and treat any skin irritation, rash, ear infections, or other discomforts your pet is experiencing. After asking a few questions and an examination, we will develop a treatment play to help manage your pet’s allergy symptoms. Call Ashworth Road Animal Hospital in West Des Moines today at (515) 225-1807 to schedule an appointment if you are concerned that your pet may be suffering from allergies.
