Pet Allergies

Just like humans, pets can be reactive to the outdoors. While people can find relief with over-the-counter medications, dogs and cats need specialized care to fight off uncomfortable reactions to environmental allergens.

Pet Allergies

At Radnor Veterinary Hospital, we see pets who suffer from reactions to pollen, mold, and plant allergens, treating them with preventative measures as well as immediate relief.

Allergies affect cats and dogs and can be caused by the outdoors, your pet’s environment, or even certain foods. In severe cases, allergies can cause sores, scabs, or discharge from their ears or eyes. They can also lead to a loss of shine to their fur or dandruff.

Pet allergies should never be treated with Benadryl or other human allergy medications, as they can be highly toxic to animals. Instead, your best bet is to maintain a clean environment and schedule an allergy examination to pinpoint specific issues.

Our veterinarians can help identify what may be causing your pet’s discomfort through diagnostic and allergy testing. Our team is experienced in treating various pet allergies, and we’re happy to help your furry family member feel better during this allergy season.
