Medications we commonly use for allergies are antihistamines.
Not all antihistamines are safe for pets; some are even toxic if they contain other ingredients, such as decongestants. Always call and ask if a medication is safe before giving it. We will be happy to answer or offer alternative options.
There are now newer and more effective medication options for allergies.
Some pets have severe enough allergies to need the testing and long-term allergy injections provided by veterinary dermatologists.
While some pets are allergic to certain foods, these allergies are not nearly as common as advertising would have you believe, and grain-free foods are rarely necessary.
