dog, dogs, allergies, petsDid you know that pets can have allergies, too? While they may not show it with a runny, stuffed nose, allergies can be just as uncomfortable to animals as humans. Here are some signs that your pet may have allergies and need professional veterinary care.

  1. Itchy, Red Eyes
    If your pet’s eyes are red and he or she is constantly attempting to itch them, allergies may be the cause. Runny eyes are also another sign of allergies in pets.
  2. Diarrhea and Vomiting
    It might not just be a flu bug! If your pet has certain allergies to food, the end result may be diarrhea and vomiting.
  3. Swollen Paws
    If your pet has swollen paws or he or she is constantly chewing them, these may be signs of allergies. Just like humans, pets can become itchy and irritated, too.

Luckily, many allergies can be identified in pets and taken care of over time. Contact Pet Vet Animal Hospitals to learn more about your pet’s potential allergies and treatment options. Our veterinarians can help your pet live a more comfortable life, without itching or irritation.
