Signs Your Pet Has Allergies

Just like humans, pets get allergies, too. They may display the same types of symptoms that humans do, like having an irritation of the skin or a rash, but there are different types of allergies your pet can have. If your pet is showing a dermatologic reaction that you think is due to an allergic reaction, call your Richmond vet at Kindred Care Pet Hospital for treatment.

Skin Allergies

Skin allergies are the most common and can be caused by fleas, food, and the environment. Some pets can have an allergic reaction to flea bites. They may be itchy, especially at the base of their tail, get a rash, and their skin may become scabbed. Some pets may also get seasonal allergies, having a reaction to dust, pollen, and mold. The skin around their paws, ears, and other parts of their body may become irritated. With food allergies, the reaction is similar to seasonal allergies, but they may also have gastrointestinal symptoms. Skin allergies may cause a secondary infection due to scratching, biting, and licking the irritated area. This may open up the skin to yeast and bacterial infection and may need treatment from your Richmond vet.


Symptoms of an allergy can be different depending on the cause of the allergy. If your pet has an allergy it may show signs of:

  • Itchiness
  • Hives
  • Swelling in face, ears, lips, or eyelids
  • Red and inflamed skin or a rash
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Sneezing
  • Ear infection
  • Runny eyes
  • Constant licking

     Dear Clients, 

 The implications of the COVID-19 are concerning to all. Our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our staff, clients and community members. Having said that, we will be taking some precautionary measures and actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with the CDC recommendations; wEARING OF MASK, Hand washing and social distancing guidelines have been implemented. Team members who are not feeling well or have potential exposure to COVID-19 are being asked to stay at home. We have implemented an increased scope and frequency of cleaning in our facility. Surfaces that are touched frequently are being cleaned often and wiped down. Hand sanitizers are placed in multiple locations. We are encouraging drop off appointments, while spacing out the appointments that absolutely cannot be dropped off in hope of limiting face to face time while ensuring that our patients are getting all of the care needed. We encourage quick hand-off of your pets to clinic staff. In some situations, a case by case analysis of the situation may be considered as far as coming in to the hospital.  We want to thank all our dear clients for your understanding and cooperation in these challenging times.  This too shall pass. 

 Thanks, Dr. Fidelis & Staff.
