Cats are pretty resilient, but when a kitty has allergies, their bodies can be susceptible to a lot of environmental dangers.

So what are the symptoms and how can you treat your feline so he or she will be just fine?

For starters, signs and symptoms to look for include:

Sneezing, coughing (if the cat has asthma), wheezing
Itchy skin/increased scratching
Itchy, runny eyes
Itchy back or base of tail (most commonly seen in flea allergies)
Itchy ears and ear infections
Vomiting
Diarrhea
Snoring caused by an inflamed throat
Paw chewing/swollen paws

Dangers that can cause these symptoms include cleaning products, cigarette smoke, perfumes, fleas, and fabrics.

Once you think your cat has allergies, visit your personal veterinarian. Your vet can help you identify the specific allergen and your vet may prescribe medications or help your prevent the cause.

Staying proactive once identifying cat allergies will help your cat go a long way!
