Discount on Pet Allergy Tests From Elyria Veterinarian, Elyria, Ohio

Spring is a beautiful time, but it can also be a sickly one if you have seasonal allergies. Like people, pets can get allergies as well. Some irritants are more prevalent at certain times of year and environments, while others, such as food allergies, are constant. Elyria Animal Hospital in Lorain County, OH, is the community’s go-to pet health care provider. This veterinary clinic and animal hospital is offering a discount on allergy tests in February to help your furry friend feel their best. Pets can’t talk to express their feelings the way humans do, but their bodies and behaviors can speak volumes.

How to Tell If Your Pet Has Allergies

Check the Skin

Cats and dogs can be allergic to similar irritants humans, including mold, dander, and particular plants. When an allergen enters the body, the immune system releases histamine to fight it. This protein triggers an itchy sensation in the skin. You may see your pet scratching more than usual or see red, flaky patches. Examine their skin periodically to check for such issues. 

Examine the Ear Canals

Allergens can also cause ear inflammation. For example, when allergens get stuck behind the ear flaps, they can travel into the canal, causing pain and discomfort. Bacteria and yeast may also accumulate, leading to infection. Your pet might continuously shake their head or scratch, and you may notice redness in the ear or a foul odor.

Listen for Wheezing

If the throat and airways become inflamed, your pet may have difficulty breathing. Listen for wheezing, mainly when they sleep or are out for a walk. Also, pay attention to energy levels. If they’re having trouble breathing, it may make them less energetic than usual.

Schedule Allergy Testing

Allergies are a common issue and highly treatable. The best way to determine the source of your furry friend’s trouble is with an allergy panel at an animal hospital. Through February, when you purchase a Regional Companion Animal Panel at Elyria Animal Hospital, you’ll receive a Food Panel free. This way, you’ll not only determine what environmental factors may be affecting your pet’s health, but also which dietary elements to avoid.
