Pet Allergy Treatments for Dogs and Cats
Is Your Cat or Dog Itching Constantly? There Is Hope! There Is Help for Cats and Dogs That Are Itching, Scratching and Tearing Their Fur Out!
While humans often display respiratory symptoms such as sneezing and eye irritation from allergies, common symptoms of allergies in dogs and cats are excessive scratching, licking, chewing, rashes, hot spots, hair loss and even digestive upset. Generally, when a dog or cat is scratching excessively, the first thing we think is that the pet has fleas. You may think, “My dog is always scratching but doesn’t have fleas.” Before making any assumptions, it is always a good idea to rule this out first by consulting your veterinarian or checking the pet’s coat with a flea comb for fleas. It's important to see a veterinarian, as getting to the root cause is key to an effective treatment that can offer relief for your pet. Some of the most common reasons a dog or cat may be scratching are allergies, fleas, parasites, yeast, bacterial infection or mast cell tumors. Once you have a diagnosis from your veterinarian, use our holistic supplements for allergies in dogs and cats along with allergy treatments prescribed by your veterinarian.

Symptoms of Allergies in Dogs and Cats
Allergies in dogs and cats often occur as a result of the long-term build-up of toxins, and so the goal is to detoxify the body and enhance the immune system as well as to treat the allergy symptoms. The following signs can be symptoms of allergies in dogs and cats. These signs can be reactions to food, the environment or yeast. Be sure to check with your veterinarian if your pet is displaying these symptoms:
- Itching and scratching
- Constant licking
- Smelly ears
- Red, inflamed skin
- Chronic ear infections
- Discharge from eyes or nose
- Hair loss
- Scabs or hot spots
Common Allergy, Yeast and Skin Problems in Dogs and Cats
Itchy or Smelly Ears are generally a sign of an infection and can be caused by allergies, yeast, ear mites, bacteria and even hair growth. Ear infections can become a chronic problem, and they create symptoms that are painful, smelly and itchy for your dog or cat. Humans respond to allergens with watery eyes and a runny nose. When dogs and cats have allergies, they tend to develop inflammation and heat in the ears, head, neck and feet. This inflammation increases the chance of yeast overgrowth and infection. Ear infections are much more common in dogs than cats and can be helped with diet changes along with K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic.
Itching & Scratching Constantly is usually a result of food or environmental allergies. When your pet is constantly licking, chewing and biting on the same area, the skin can become red and irritated and sometimes you may even see red bumps on dogs’ skin. It could be a flea bite, dry skin, allergies or parasites. For fast relief for your pet's environmental allergies and your cat or dog’s itchy skin, try AllerEaze for Petsa natural antihistamine made with quercetin and nettles to reduce inflammation and the histamine response. It provides relief from severe itching, redness in paws and other symptoms related to seasonal allergies. Combined with topical medications from your veterinarian, it is also an effective hot spot treatment for dogs. It works best when combined with Power Probiotic.
Licking & Chewing The Groin is frequently a sign of yeast and allergies. If your pet is licking its genitals frequently, it is important to be sure that your pet doesn't have a urinary tract infection first, as this is also a symptom of a UTI. If a UTI has been ruled out, then constant licking and chewing on the groin is usually due to yeast and allergies. Pets can get yeast overgrowth due to too many carbohydrates in the diet, treatments with steroids or antibiotics or food allergies. The best natural treatment to stop your dog from licking its privates is a combination of K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic with NotaSAN Anti-Infection Formula.
Butt Scooting Ever notice your dog rubbing its butt along the carpet? That's a sign that it is trying to scratch an itch or alleviate pain. Allergies and inflammation can lead to anal sacculitis (inflammation of the anal sacs). The anal sacs are intended to be emptied each time a dog has a bowel movement, enabling your dog to mark its territory. Impacted anal glands can be smelly and result from genetic malformation or bowel irregularities, such as constipation. Food allergies and yeast are often contributing factors. Many dogs that scoot their butts have digestive problems and are eating foods with ingredients that cause intestinal inflammation and yeast overgrowth. Most owners find that by making changes to the diet and by adding a few supplements, they can help to relieve the itching. Our natural remedies for dog allergies include Amazing Omegas, which can help reduce inflammation and make bowel movements easier. Power Probiotic helps to repopulate good flora in your dog's intestines, boosting immune function and reducing odors overall. K9 Yeast Defense improves your dog's microbiome and bowel health, reducing the non-stop need to itch and scoot.
Hair Loss is typically thought to be caused by fleas and mites. Many pets that don’t have fleas or mites will scratch their fur out because of food and environmental allergies. They will scratch in one area until the fur is missing. This can cause red, inflamed skin and lead to secondary infections. Switching your pet to a hypoallergenic diet along with using a few supplements can be life-changing for your pet and provide gentle yet effective allergy relief for dogs. ProAller, NotaSAN Anti-Infection Formula and AllerEaze can help calm the inflammation from the allergic reactions. Click here for more information about why your dog may be losing hair.
Dandruff is more than a cosmetic issue in pets. It is a sign of dry, itchy skin and can be exacerbated by allergies and a low water intake. Pets that have dandruff and dry skin often lack omega-3 fatty acids. These cannot be produced by the body; they must come from diet. Amazing Omegas contains fish oil, naturally processed from anchovies, sardines and mackerel, so it is highly bioavailable for best absorption. Power Probiotic supports digestion, enhances overall immunity, reduces allergy symptoms and improves the skin and coat. Using Amazing Omegas and Power Probiotic together can help relieve dog itchy skin and dandruff naturally.
Mast Cell Tumors are the most common form of skin cancer in dogs. They contain chemicals such as histamine and heparin, which are released during an inflammatory or allergic reaction. A sudden histamine release can cause swelling, vascular changes and inflammation. AllerEaze is the first line of defense for pets with mast cell tumors, as it has been scientifically proven to naturally reduce a pet's histamine release. Quercetin is often considered nature's Benadryl, as it helps the body cope with the dangerous effects of excess histamine released by cancerous mast cells. AllerEaze in combination with Power Probiotic has been especially helpful for pets with mast cell tumors.

“I want to let you know how great Dakota, our Golden Retriever that we rescued, is doing. When we got him, he had bad ear infections that he had for months, and his skin was so black in the armpit and groin areas that we thought it was ground in dirt. He also had acid reflux and would bring up bile several times a day. It has taken several months, but the blackened skin (from yeast) is almost back to normal thanks to K9 Yeast Defense. I wish we had taken “before” pictures of his skin because the difference is remarkable. And, for his acid reflux, we started using your supplements (Power Probiotic, K9 Digestive Enzymes, Gastro ULC and Soothing Digestive Relief). We used to give him Pepcid, but we have been able to slowly wean him off. I can’t forget to mention using your food recommendations. His ears didn’t start to clear up until we got him eating food that he could tolerate. Thank you so much for your supplements and all your help. Dakota is a much happier dog thanks to you!" - Pam & Tim, Emmaus, PA
"Thanks so much for your wonderful allergy products. Bella is doing so well with the AllerEaze, Power Probiotic and Gastro ULC" - Lustig Family, NJ
"Thank you so much for the allergy and skin solutions! The Proaller, plus the NotaSAN alternating with the QuentaSAN not only gave my 15 year old Maltese, Beebop, relief from his respiratory and skin allergy symptoms---these amazing products helped his skin to heal completely and his beautiful hair to return so thickly, he looks like a young pup again. His ear inflammation and "gunk" cleared up and he's happy and frolicking like his "old self". He's living up to that Beebop name and wrestling with our other two Maltese, Bambi and Thumper. For the first time in years, his little tail is back up and curled as he romps around our yard. We are eternally grateful to you and continue to recommend you and your products to all of our pet-owner friends and family." - Debbie, Florida
What Can You Feed Pets With Allergies?
Ask Ariel has an extensive article library to help you resolve your pet's allergy symptoms, which may include scratching, itching, chewing, hot spots, hair loss, red spots, yeast and more. Allergies in dogs or cats can be caused by inhaled allergens (e.g., pollen), food and/or external allergens (e.g., chemical exposure). One of the fastest ways to improve your pet’s health is to change its diet. Many dogs are allergic to certain meat proteins (like chicken, beef or fish) and common allergens such as corn, milk products, soy, peanut butter and gluten (found in wheat, barley, spelt and other grains). Poor digestion can be the root cause of many symptoms related to food allergies in dogs, so we strongly recommend that any pet with allergy symptoms use Power Probiotic as well as a digestive enzyme such as K9 Digestive Enzymes or Lypozyme.
