Allergy Treatment for Dogs and Cats

For so many years we often only focused on human allergic reactions to pets. Now, veterinary medicine understands that our furry friends can suffer from exposure to pollen, foods, and even materials in their homes. The Animal Hospital of Bentonville brings a whole health approach to helping you identify what might be causing the chronic cough, constant itching, or even stomach upsets that are worrying your furry companion. Take action and bring a brighter future to your dog or cat today.

Common Symptoms that Could Point to Allergies

Is your furry friend always fighting what looks like a cold? One or a combination of these symptoms could point toward treatable allergies:

  • Constant sneezing or coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Itching or whole-body twitches, like something is tickling their skin or fur.
  • Vomiting after eating
  • Sudden dislike for a favorite food
  • Hyperactivity combined with panting and sweating

In many ways, your pet's reaction to their allergies is like their body trying to get away from the underlying cause. Determining what is causing the reaction can be the most challenging part of this diagnosis. Just like people, your friend can suffer from asthma, sensitivity to food ingredients and fragrances, and even some bedding materials.

How We Approach Pet Allergies

If our veterinarian determines that your cat or dog is fighting allergies, we will offer a variety of potential treatments. It can take some time to pinpoint the cause and we will schedule regular check-ups to determine which approach allows your pet to stop suffering. It may be a seasonal irritant like pollen or grass that can trick you into thinking the problem is over. This is where working with an experienced vet can help you reach the proper decision for treatment.

Diet, Medication, and Adjusting Living Conditions for a Happier Pet

We may suggest using antihistamines, removing the irritant from their environment, or suggesting new cleaning schedules for your home and your pet. In many cases where it is a skin irritant, regular bathes with medicated soaps can greatly reduce discomfort. We may suggest switching to a different food that contains fewer common trigger ingredients.

  • "Absolutely amazing people. They were very honest about my dog’s chances and made the difficult choice and the experience after much easier. If I weren’t already a client at the Centerton location I would come here in the future in a heartbeat."

  • "Hands down the best Vet Clinic I've ever visited. I switched after recently moving and this great location opened only a few blocks from my house. The team was great and worked to really let me know how my animals were doing and took the time to let me ask about any concerns. Even during covid the schedule is flexible and they're very accommodating. I fully trust them with my pets. If you choose to visit them, know you'll be in good hands."
