Pet Allergies

Pet Allergies with Mayer Vet in Lafayette

If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from allergies, you know how miserable it can make you feel. What you may not realize is your dog can also suffer from allergies, which makes them feel just as miserable. Pet allergies can be similar but also very different from human allergies.

Causes of Allergies

Just like with human allergies, there are many causes of pet allergies. Some of these can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Dust, pollen, mold, and other allergens
  • Drugs
  • Food
  • Parasites

Due to the complexity of the allergies and the differentiation of the medications used to treat allergies, we recommend giving us a call to schedule an appointment if you suspect your pet may have an allergy. Home remedies are not recommended as some human medications or treatments can be toxic to dogs and cats.
