Is my cat allergic?



A persistent itch that won't and won't go away - that's a crazy idea. The worst is when you scratch your skin so much that it gets infected. We humans realise at this point that we're not supposed to scratch our damaged skin, but unfortunately cats don't. One of the causes can be allergies, which can be a real problem for your furry friend. However, if it is caught in time and treated, it is possible to live with it quite normally.

 

What's going on?

Allergens have the potential to trigger an immune reaction in the body, which is more commonly known as an allergic reaction. Their triggers can be multiple in cats. A cat's immune system reacts to allergens by producing and releasing chemicals. that are visible to the naked eye.

What are the signs?

Allergies in cats manifest themselves most often on their skin. If your kitty scratches excessively, rubs against furniture or carpet and jerks his head, it is most likely an allergic reaction. The most common causes are the environment, food and fleas - i.e. their bites.


Environment

The cat gets these allergies into itself by inhalation. It's basically the same as a human allergy - to pollen, grass, mould, dust, fungi, but also perfume or smoke. In this case, it's very hard to guess what exactly is bothering your cat, but it's really important for her mental and health well-being.

Food allergies

The most common symptom of a food allergy is skin problems. In some cats, however, it is also manifested by vomiting or diarrhoea. If you find that this problem might be bothering your cat, we recommend that you visit a vet. An experienced vet will do the necessary tests and put on a quality food free of unnecessary irritants.


Fleas

Saliva left behind after a flea bite can cause your furry friend to have an unpleasant allergic reaction. The most ideal prevention is therefore year-round administration of anti-parasitic drugs, which will reduce the risk of fleas.
