Allergy Testing and Treatment
Similar to humans, animals can develop allergies to a wide range of substances.
When the immune system becomes too sensitive to a particular irritant, an allergy begins to form. Your pet could scratch, have swollen paws, scabbed skin, runny eyes, or sneeze. Additionally, allergies can disturb the digestive system. Unfortunately, ignoring these signs can substantially reduce your pet’s quality of life and cause other problems.
Exposure to allergens such as pollen or certain ingredients in food can cause pets to become sensitive. There are several methods for treating these allergies. It may be enough to just switch your pet’s food if they are allergic to something in their diet. For environmental allergies, a more in-depth treatment could be necessary. This might include medicine, bathing, eliminating the allergen from the home, or getting allergy injections. We provide a comprehensive range of allergy testing and treatment services in Pembroke Pines because we want to improve your pet’s quality of life, despite their allergies.
Common Allergy Tests for Pets
Not all medications are designed for all animals. Many medicines are formulated for a specific species, weight and age. If not administered properly, they may be harmful. Always check with an experienced vet before choosing any allergy medications for your pets to be sure you’re using the proper one.
