Allergies and how to help your pet avoid allergens
Most itchy pets need some medical help and this is often time consuming, expensive and sometimes has side effects. If the itch is caused by a parasite that should be curable. As a general rule, itchy skins do not resolve without treatment; so, if your cat is scratching an early visit to your veterinarian is advisable. Unfortunately, your veterinarian will not be able to cure an allergy so cats with allergies usually need lifelong care. Avoiding the trigger for the itch is much the best solution, sometimes this can be achieved and is all that is needed; in some other cats it will aid their medical treatment so that you may need less of it – and that may mean lower costs and fewer side effects.
