Allergy Testing and Treatment
Like humans, animals can develop allergies to a variety of things.
An allergy occurs when the immune system has a hypersensitivity to a particular substance, called an allergen. If your pet has allergies, they may show signs of itching, swollen paws, scabbed skin, sneezing, or runny eyes. These symptoms can seriously affect your pet’s quality of life and lead to additional complications left untreated.
Pets can develop allergies to anything from food to pollen. Treatment for these allergies take many forms. If your pet is allergic to something in their diet, a solution can be as simple as changing their food. Other types of allergies, such as environmental allergies, may take different treatments. These might include medications, bathing, cleaning the household of the allergen, or allergy shots. We offer a wide range of allergy testing and treatment services in Stuart and are here to help your pet.
