Allergy Treatments

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:

  • Environmental
  • Nutritional
  • Parasitic
  • Infectious
  • Allergic

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.
