Allergy Relief Fur Kitties Soothing Balm - 4 oz.
Just like people, cats can show allergic symptoms when their immune systems begin to recognize certain everyday substances-or allergens- as dangerous. Allergens can be problematic when inhaled, ingested or contact a cat’s skin. As his body tries to rid itself of these substances, a variety of skin, digestive and respiratory symptoms may appear.
General symptoms of allergies include: itchy, red, moist or scabbed skin; increased scratching; itchy, runny eyes; itchy back or base of tail; itchy ears and ear infections; sneezing; paw chewing/swollen paws; constant licking. Allergic cats may also suffer from secondary bacterial or yeast skin infections, which may cause hair loss, scabs or crusts on the skin.
A few common allergens include: Environmental (e.g. tree, grass and weed pollens, mold spores, dust and house dust mites, dander, and cigarette smoke); Food ingredients (e.g. beef, chicken, pork, corn, wheat or soy); Prescription drugs; Fleas and flea-control products (Only a few flea bites can trigger intense itchiness for two to three weeks!); Cleaning products; and Insecticidal shampoo.
