Pico Veterinary Hospital of San Clemente Pet Allergy Care

 Pico Veterinary clinic can diagnose and treat a broad range of allergic reactions in your pet as well as offer expert advice on how you can help to treat and prevent them at home.

If your dog is suffering from allergies, the veterinary team at Pico Veterinary Clinic can help. We offer a range of allergy testing and treatment options to get your furry friend feeling better again. There are four main types of allergy that can affect dogs: atopy (environmental allergies), flea, food, and contact. Atopy refers to a dog’s body releasing excess histamine when exposed to higher concentrations of pollen in the air – this prompts symptoms such as itching, redness, and swelling. Flea allergies are caused by an allergic reaction to flea bites, while food allergies are typically triggered by proteins or carbohydrates in the diet. Contact allergies occur when a dog’s skin comes into contact with something they’re allergic to.
