Just like people, pets suffer from allergies- and the itching and scratching that goes along with them. Thousands of pets suffer from allergies, a disease in which your pet’s immune system reacts abnormally to everyday substances such as pollens, animal dander, mold spores, mites and certain foods.
If your dog or cat is itching, scratching, licking or chewing the skin, it might be because of allergies. Do you see redness of the belly, ears or an ear infection that won’t go away? It’s time for a check up to to see if your dog or cat may be suffering from allergies!

Pet allergies are not uncommon. There are new options that make it even easier on your pet! In addition to the traditional allergy shots, we also offer ALLERCEPT Therapy Drops which are a revolutionary way to provide effective treatment and relief from allergy symptoms.
