Pet Allergies

What are allergies?

A pet will experience an allergic reaction to food, or other substances in their environment, when their immune system is out of balance and over-reacts to these ordinarily harmless substances.

Common allergy symptoms can include:

  • Excessive scratching, licking, chewing of body
  • Inflamed skin, hair loss, sores, secondary infections, hot spots
  • Problems with ears (scratching, discharge, odor) and feet (excessive licking, chewing, odor)
  • Chronic gastrointestinal upset

Why does treating the symptoms not solve the problem?

  • Medications, such as steroids and antibiotics, may be necessary in some cases to cause immediate and temporary relief, but overall does not treat the underlying issue causing your pet’s symptoms in the first place.
  • Often times with allergies these symptoms can persist and regularly recur if we don’t reintroduce balance into a pet’s immune system.

How can I treat the underlying cause of allergies?

  1. Healthy Diet – The first thing we always recommend to balance a pet’s immune system is to make sure your pet is eating a high quality, balanced & biologically appropriate diet.
  1. Boost the Immune System – Charlotte’s Web’s CBD Oil can be used to help decrease inflammation and balance the body’s immune system. Two other great options for boosting the immune system are Bixbi Immunity and Animal Essentials Super Immune.

What are some natural remedies for allergy symptoms?

If your pet is still experiencing some allergy symptoms, or immediate relief is needed, we also recommend the use of supplements or homeopathic and herbal remedies.
