Common Questions and Answers about Cat allergies humans

cat-allergies

My cat does the same thing. I've had her looked at and they kept saying it was probably allergies. She also gets a weepy eye from time to time and I have to get an ointment to put in her eye. This last time we decided to try antibiotics in case it was some sort of viral bacteria or something. I've heard herpes in cats can cause these type symptoms too. You might want to get that checked out. Otherwise, it's probably just allergies.
I have had my cat for many years and have no allergies to her. I have seen a couple doctor's over a month for symptoms of swollen lymph nodes on/off (always present) , numb throat, ringing of the ears, and my brian felt like it was swelling largly at one time. All these symptoms look as if i have a major sinus infection. I have taken amoxicillin, z pak, nasal sprays, and ibuprofen.
The vet said that cats can have OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder, just like us humans can. The antidepressant had really helped the cat a lot. Also, it is well worth looking into the possibility of your kitty being hyperthyroid. Thyroid probs are well-known to cause behavior problems. Please ask your vet about all of the suggestions here, we don't want you to waste money either. I'd be willing to bet that these ideas will improve things for you and kitty BIG time!
As it turned out it was almost a complete waste, but the kitty shrink did say she thought it was allergies, but added that the cat should continue seeing her as well. I took the cat off of his psyche meds and returned to our original vet, he decided to biopsy the 5 areas where the fur was gone. That was useless as well. The vet decided to then test him for allergies and it came back that he was allergic to 32 different things.
Cats? Allergies? Cat allergies? Do these specialists have a title or a specific field of study that I can begin searching for one by?
sensitive commonly to a preservative or ingredient in dry kibble type food. grain allergies are common in cats and most cat foods are full of unnecessary grains just b/c they are 'cheap' fillers for the manufacturer, they do absolutely nothing for the diet!!! there are some 'grain free' diets on the market that may be a worth a trial. EVO, Wellness and Natures Variety are a few. cats can also suffer from environmental allergies....such as what you decide with your kitty.....
can humans develope asthma from severe reaction to many flea bites. my cat developed asthma from them.
It seems like Akira has seasonal allergies and dust allergies in addition to her food allergies. Because I really don't want to give her long term steroids, I decided to only give her the 1/4 tablet of Zyrtec that the vet told me to give her before. I try to wait 'til I just have to give it to her, because I know that people can build up a tolerance to antihistamines, so I figure that animals can, too.
hyperthyroid, Inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, food allergies, gastrointestinal parasites, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal cancer, and more. Your cat has not been to the vet for over a year. That is seven years in humans and a lot can change in 7 years. Please take your cat back to the vet and have blood work including thyroid testing, and a urinalysis.
hi so sorry for poor kitties problems, its not likely allergies, unlike us humans an allergy for a cat shows up as a problem with their skin.(as far as I am aware).. but the eye discharge sounds like something that does need to be investigated by a Vet...what exactly was he diagnosed with the first time he was seen?...In my opinion its more of a further health condition and not likely an infection because it is chronic.
she's since passed away. Now have a cat that has allergies to something...still trying to find out. allergies in cats very likely start with a bite from a mite, flea or insect.....than their system develops allergies and one allergy leads to another...ie: foods, dust, pollen etc...just like people...only instead of sneezing it causes skin problems, unusually a small crusty scab that is very itchy, but can also be just an itch without the scab.
Wow...you and your poor Miles have been through a lot of change recently! I hope you all are getting to a point where you can start settling down!! So, if I understand your post correctly, Miles will be living with 2 other cats and 2 dogs? One of the most important things for a peaceful introduction and transition is to take things slow and always know where everyone is!!
My favorite thing! ************************************************************************ CAT DIARY Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.
every day, more and more, I realize that digestive issues are more common these days, or at least that is the impression I get. Maybe I'm wrong. I'm so sorry about your cat. But what kind of milk are you providing? Cow milk gives kitties diarrhea because cats are lactose intolerant, just like lots of humans. So, if cow milk is what she has been drinking, then her diarrhea will not go away. Has she gotten tested properly? E.
My 5 year old cat has started licking the fur off his body. He started on his lower belly and I just went away for 3 days and when I came back, he has started licking it off his paws, back and hind legs. I started both he and his brother on a different diet in which I added a small can of wet food in the morning and also gave them 1/2 as much dry food (I change the brand of dry every day.) I am so scared as he seems to be not as healthy anymore.
As mentioned more details are needed to maybe off more advice. In my years of practice I have seen allergies just about anything you can name (mainly fleas, environment and foods).
Hi everyone. I took my cat Misha to the vet today because she had a weepy eye. She gets this a couple of times a year. I don't know if it's allergies or what. They're not entirely sure what it is either but gave me a cream. Well, while there they weighed her and she's 8.5 pounds. She's lost a pound and a half within the last year. I knew she'd lost some weight but she acts fine and seems to be eating fine. She usually meows at me in the evenings to be fed.
he has a roommate and would move in with me or get his own place at first. he does't hurt my cat, just growls and him and the cat runs and hides under my bed or in the closet until he leaves. i don't expect him to love my cat, but i don't want him to torment him either. the cat sleeps in my bed, so when the bf is here, he sleeps in my spare room. he claims he is allergic, but i don't think he is...he has never acting allergic physically. he doesn't sneeze or anything like that.
than I'm 905 certain its food allergies....particularly to GRAINS...most cat foods are full of grains because they are cheap..much cheaper than meat...and most cats are intolerant to grains.. even if her diet hasn't changed, like us humans allergies take a while to develop and some will be more affected than others.. also dry kibble has tons of preservatives and other chemicals that canned food doesn't, even has mites due to long storage after bagging.
Omg that is sooo horrible! I sometimes catch my cat chewing on wires.
We have checked for fleas and bug bites, and dry skin but there seems to be nothing. She also pulls fur out of the other cat we have....but I think that's because she is trying to get the snarls out of his fur. I would just like to know if anyone else has experienced this before.
My cat had a cold a few weeks ago. All signs of cold are gone,but now he has a dry scaley,fungus growing on the outside of his ear.He is still eating very well.He has also become very lovey now.I have 5 cats and need some help.
The vet derm thought it was allergies and we put him on a hypo-allergenic diet but that did not stop it. This is now going on for two years. It started when he had been scratching his ears and had a growth on his face and neck. His regular vet gave him a long term steroid shot and betamethasone dipropionate cream usp 0.05% and everything cleared up but his belly licking.
she only gets Origen food(no grain,wheat),and grain free wet food(wellness).it breaks my heart for her,alls I want is for my cat to feel better.my other cat is just fine-and if by being fat makes you fine,he's doing pretty good for himself.I hope someone might be able to help.
Swampy sometimes feels guilty about feeding his fierce attack kitty Friskies. Swampy recently bought his attack cat a few cans of Pet's Promise salmon cat food. PP has a higher protein count (11.5%) than the Friskies wet food (8.5%)*. It also, strangely enough, smells something like the food it is supposed to be. The cat positively hated it. She started eating her dry food instead and begging Swampy for some of his peanut butter toast. So its back to Friskies.
I know some folks disagree with feeding our little carnivores a balanced raw diet but have you thought of doing that? That is how I got my cat to stop having food allergies AFTER getting the IBD diagnosis and researching on my own since all the vets wanted to do was put him on steroids to control the diarrhea and the bleeding. I had to change his raw diet because of other unrelated issues but ultimately, going back to basics seems to work for many cat owners out there.
I too, suffer from myriad food allergies, amongst other things.
You can research this under Eosinophlic Complex, its a hard issue to resolve, I have a cat with this also. does your cat also have skin/sores that are a manifestation of EGC? I would wonder why you Vet is treating her with antibiotics when the UA test was normal, this indicates there should be no bladder infection. However a high Urea/bun does indicate Kidney disease...this to my knowledge is usually not treated with antibiotics...
I'm desperate for some kind of solution. Is this just a male cat thing? I had a male cat years ago, and a few cats between then and now (all female), and I've NEVER smelled a stench from a cat like what comes from this guy--not even from any cat that a friend or family member owns. Did I just get "lucky" enough to get the world's sweetest and best cat, with his one downside being comparable with a skunk's stench?
