Pet Skin and Allergy Treatment

Depending on what they are allergic to, some dogs and cats have seasonal allergies, while others are itchy all year. Allergy treatment generally takes the form of some combination of the following:

  • Treatment of secondary yeast and/or bacterial infections
  • Medicated baths with soothing leave-on conditioners
  • Anti-itch sprays
  • Antihistamines and special fatty acid formulations
  • Allergy shots (hypo sensitization injection), if necessary short-term, low-dose steroids to control inflammation
  • High-quality, skin supportive diet
  • Regular Flea and Tick preventative
