Itchy Pet Symptoms and Awareness of Signs

Allergies can affect dogs and cats much like they do humans. Itching is one of the most common allergy symptoms. Food allergens, the environment and parasites (fleas and mites) can be three of the main triggers of itching and scratching.

Dogs and cats may display allergies differently.

Common signs to look for in dogs are:

  • Licking
  • Scratching
  • Skin redness
  • Chewing at paws
  • Rolling around

Common signs to look for in cats are:

  • Itching
  • Sneezing
  • Skin redness
  • Chewing at paws
  • Swelling

Pet’s allergies can lead to other issues such as skin infections and hair loss if your pet’s allergies are not managed.
