Frequently Asked Questions

Cat allergy symptoms can present themselves in various forms depending on the root allergy. Your veterinarian can perform blood or skin tests to determine specific allergies that are troubling your kitty. Signs of allergic reactions that can prompt a trip to the vet include the following.

  • Itching or chewing at paws and tail
  • Sneezing, coughing, or wheezing
  • Discharge from the eyes or nose
  • Hairloss
  • Skin redness, swelling or irritation
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ear infections

Difficulty breathing is often a sign of severe cat allergies, and pet parents should contact their veterinarian immediately if this symptom is observed. Cats with asthma can be especially susceptible to environmental allergies, so it’s recommended they are treated with the proper cat allergy medications as soon as they’re diagnosed.

Absolutely. Allergy season can wreak havoc on your kitty just like it does humans, and they may need a cat allergy supplement or prescription allergy medication, depending on the severity. Regular grooming and bathing can help reduce the symptoms of your feline’s pollen allergy, as well as reducing the number of pollen-producing plants on your property.

Skin conditions can be tricky because there may be a variety of underlying issues causing them. With allergies, it’s recommended that you consult your veterinarian to make sure a proper diagnosis is made using an allergy test. Here are a few possible allergies that—if properly treated—may provide your cat itch relief. 

  • Food sensitivities Along with tummy upset and diarrhea, red and itchy skin may indicate that your cat has food sensitivities. If you recently switched food brands and notice any of the symptoms above, it may help to try changing back to your original kitty food to see if it brings your cat skin allergy relief.
  • Allergies to flea bites Parasites of any kind can be not only a nuisance to your feline but also a health risk. Just one fleabite may cause your cat to have an allergic reaction all over their body. Excessive licking and nibbling caused by bites can cause skin lesions, leading to bacterial infections. Treating your cat for flea prevention is one of the most common solutions to preventing allergic reactions. At Petco, we carry a great selection of flea and tick treatments and sprays designed for flea itch relief in cats.
  • Vitamin deficiencies A lack of proper nutrients in their diet may be to blame for your kitty’s dry or itchy skin. At Petco, we carry cat vitamins and supplements that may help treat their allergies and provide skin and coat support to help make it soft and shiny again.

Our knowledgeable Pet Care Center Associates are ready and waiting to help you find whatever recommended cat allergy medication, supplement or other solution you are looking to try. Visit your neighborhood Petco Pet Care Center or shop online to discover our leading brands of allergy and itch relief solutions.
