All you need to know about allergies in cats

Is your cat sneezing a lot or scratching himself silly? Then there’s a significant chance that he is allergic to something. The most common symptoms of an allergy are:

  • Sneezing, coughing
  • Irritated skin
  • Eye discharge
  • Itchy ears and ear infections
  • Vomiting
  • Snoring due to an irritated throat
  • Biting paws/swollen paws
  • Diarrhoea

Cats can be allergic to the most peculiar things:

  • Food / gluten
  • Trees, grass, fungi and pollen
  • Fleas and flea-control remedies
  • Medicines
  • Perfume / fragrances
  • Cleaning products
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Materials such as rubber and plastic

Obviously you’ll be wanting your cat to make a speedy recovery. Hence the best thing to do is to get rid of the culprit. That said, chopping down an entire tree because your cat has a bad reaction to it is a pretty drastic measure. Other tips include:

Use dust-free, unscented cat litter. Cats can be allergic to the scent.
If dust is the cause of the allergic reaction, then clean the cat’s sleeping place thoroughly at least once a week. Vacuum-clean at least twice a week.

Sometimes it isn’t possible to rid a cat’s environment of a particular substance (consider the tree example), or the allergy will persist long-term. In such cases, you should ask your vet for medication. If your cat is itching a lot, then give omega-3&6 a try.

“Door beter opneembare eiwitten en het ontbreken van kunstmatige geur- en smaakstoffen verdwijnen klachten meestal al naar een maand.”
Eriko de Leeuw, Dierenarts in Valkenburg

We vinden het niet meer van deze tijd om plofkippen te werken en vlees uit megastallen te halen.
