May 2019: Pets Have Allergies, Too!

By May 2, 2019 No Comments

Allergy season is upon us!

Did you know our pets can suffer from allergies just like us? The most common allergens for pets are foods like chicken, beef, dairy, wheat and eggs, but a lot suffer from environmental allergies as well. If your pet struggles with persistent or recurring itchiness, redness, watery eyes, sneezing and hairloss, they could be suffering from allergies!

The Doctor’s Recommendation

Is your pet chronically itchy, red and suffering from skin infections? It might be time to test for allergies! We do our allergy testing through Nelco Allergy Labratories where they test for everything from foods, to household and environmental allergies that your pet may be sensitive to. Once testing is complete, Nelco returns a comprehensive list of all the things your pet should avoid as well as a list of recommended diets that are best for your fur baby. If you think your pet may benefit from allergy testing or have any questions, please call us today!
