Professional Treatment for Cat and Dog Allergies
Learn the symptoms of pet allergies to stay aware, and alert your veterinarian to help keep your dog or cat protected.
Solutions to Allergies in Pets
Depending on the nature of your pet’s allergic reaction, our veterinarians will be able to assist in controlling long-term effects. However, there is no cure for allergies. Our goal is to reduce the severity of symptoms through preventive measures and by eliminating allergens wherever we can. Recommendations on how to take care of allergens at home are a big part of treatment, especially if your pet is dealing with an allergy caused by dust or plant-based materials.
Dermatology: The Allergy Connection
For treatment of abnormal skin reactions, or “dermatitis,” our veterinarians must first root out causal factors. Most skin and coat issues fall into one of several categories:
Through rigorous testing, we can evaluate the nature of any skin reaction and determine if allergies may be to blame.
Once diagnosed, our veterinarians will help you develop a plan to keep your animal companion’s symptoms—allergic or otherwise—from re-emerging, with specially formulated foods and supplements designed for allergy control available to boost this effort.
Long Animal Hospital invites you to contact us if you would like to make an appointment for your pet, especially if you suspect dermatological and/or allergic reactions are affecting your companion.
“This was the best part of my whole experience when I brought my dog Oscar in on April 9. I have never had a Vet Doctor explain everything to me in detail like that and then physically show me how to clean his wounds and even just how to properly carry him while he's injured. Blew me away the attention to detail this man had. THANK YOU LONG ANIMAL! I will be remaining loyal to your practice. I don't know what we would do without you.—Megan L.”
