Spring is coming, and with the sun, allergies are back too. Unfortunately they do not only affect humans - animals can also develop severe allergies.

How to spot if your pet is prone to allergies?

  • If their skin is inflamed, red or has a rash
  • If your pet keeps scratching themselves
  • If they have respiratory problems such as sneezing or coughing

If your pet has any of these symptoms, it is important to visit your veterinarian to make them do various tests that will let you know exactly what your pet is allergic to and administer appropriate therapy, or desensitization.
