People aren’t the only ones to experience allergies.

Just like us, our pets are susceptible to developing allergies to a variety of things. The immune system becoming overly sensitive to a certain substance causes an allergy to develop. Some signs that your pet may have been exposed to something they’re allergic to include scratching, swollen paws, scabbed skin, sneezing, and runny eyes. These signs may worsen and significantly lower your pet’s quality of life if they are ignored.

Treating a pet’s allergy can look different for each animal. Changes in their diet or shampoo could be all that is necessary. However, treatment may be more complicated if the allergen is environmental. A complete removal of the allergen from the environment, medications, or even allergy shots could be part of the treatment. In light of this, the first step in figuring out your pet’s treatment plan is to test them to see what they are allergic to.

Common Allergy Tests for Pets

The results of allergy testing will help you understand what is affecting your pet and aren’t as challenging as they may sound. Make sure you only test for one kind of allergen at a time to prevent confusion. Consult a veterinarian to ensure you’re taking the appropriate precautions when attempting to determine what your pet is allergic to. Typical pet allergy testing may involve:

Using combs to check for evidence of fleas

Swapping their food to one without common allergens

Scheduling an intradermal skin test

Scheduling a blood test

Make sure to always consult a veterinarian before choosing any allergy treatments because most of them are specific to the age and weight of your pet. If not administered correctly, these can be very dangerous.
