We Help Manage Allergies in Dogs and Cats
Caring for a pet is a lot like caring for children. Dogs and cats of all kinds are subjected to environments and food ingredients that can cause a host of allergies that affect their skin, fur, breathing, and more. The team at Parker Animal Hospital offers comprehensive testing for various allergies and management solutions to keep them at a minimum so pets can lead happy and healthy lives.
Allergies in Dogs
If your dog is showing signs of allergies, we can perform a blood test to determine what is causing the issue. Common allergies in dogs can stem from things found in their environment such as dust, pollen from trees and grasses, and many other items. Sometimes the allergy is due to the food that they eat. Treatments can range from recommending anti-histamines and shampoos to prescribing specific anti-allergy medications. We do offer competitive pricing on medications such as Apoquel and Cytopoint.
Call us if your dog shows allergy signs, such as:
- Red or inflamed skin
- Itchy ears
- Constant itchy skin
- Swelling of the face, ears, lips, or eyes

While we don’t know exactly what causes them or why cats have allergies, everything from fleas and pollen to household allergens and food can be the source.
