Cat allergies urine

Common Questions and Answers about Cat allergies urine


326352 tn?1310997895 I'm a nurse and from what I've read on the subject, cat allergies associated with toddlers can result in mild to severe allergic reactions, i.e. red, itchy, watery eyes, red, itchy skin, nasal congestion, severe repetitive sneezing, coughing, and even respiratory distress. The severity of the reaction depends upon how severe the child's immune system reacts to the proteins in the cat's saliva, urine, or dander (dead skin).

Avatar n tn Some allergen exposure control methods are to clean very well daily (vacuum, sweep, dust), keep the cat out of your bedroom, wash your hands after playing with the cat, and shower before bed. If you can train the cat to tolerate a bath that would be beneficial as well. Otherwise you could try wiping its coat with a damp cloth regulary. There are ways to live with pet allergies and keep the pet.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am wondering if I am able to let my female cat and male cat female cat is jonesing to be outside and has sometimes escaped I have got her back with treats or she will come back on her on ( she goes into a neighbors yard ) my other cat the male (brother and sister) he will go outside a bit then gets scared and runs back in. Is there a way that I can leave a window open and they can go out and come in when they please...
Avatar m tn You could get a lot more years out of him that way. Our cat coughs and snorts from allergies, more towards the fall and winter. Did they definately rule out allergies for yours? I know what you mean about having a hard time getting him there, and them being scared while they're there, but keep telling yourself its for his own good, and he's a lucky cat because he's getting so much care.
Avatar n tn Last week, I went away and had my mom cat-sit for me. When I came back and brought the cat back to the house, she's been vomiting BEFORE i feed her. Which makes no sense. Her food hasn't been changed. I feed her the Iams hairball care/weight control for indoor cats. She seems fairly active, and I don't see anything visibly wrong with her. Her poop is also solid so no diarrhea. And she has no symptoms for worms.
Avatar m tn My cat is seven years old and for last several years he has been chewing gobs hair ,mostly at night I think.what can I do for him stop. He has stright hair My wife passed away a year ago,now playing with me the same games he played with her.
Avatar m tn are safer and more effective. If your cat still has stones in his bladder, or continues to produce crystals in his urine he could continue to get urinary tract infections which could cause fevers and vomiting. Did your vet place him on an all canned special stone dissolution diet after the surgery? If not, you should discuss this with your vet. All cats regardless of history of illness, whether sick or well should be on an all wet diet at all times.
Avatar n tn Doesn't have to be circular spots. So, I'd pay attention to that. Another thing which could be happening to your cat is allergies. It could be food allergies or that he is allergic to a cleaning product or deodorizer you may be using in the house. Got any plants? Kitties can also be allergic to certain plants. Would you post a picture of the cat on your profile page so I could see him? Is he indoors only? Do you keep him inside at all times? What food are you giving him?
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
776303 tn?1239872138 Hi There, Recently my 2 year old, female, neutered, indoor cat has started licking her left hand side , around her abdomen, she has licked a small square that is red and inflamed, she also has licked one of her nipples so much it has scabbed over. She doesn't seem to be uncomfortable and is eating and sleeping as normal. I also have a male cat who has none of these symptoms. Any ideas on what could be the problem with her? Look forward to hearing for you's!
3098160 tn?1341148418 some time ago our cat got out by a cellar window that the neighbors roofers had broken. I had it mended until my husband got back from weeks away with his company. in the mean time the cat got out and not long after that I noticed his lip had an ulcer on it sort of inside his mouth. I took him to the vet. he said it was herpes. he gave him some medicine. it got larger over time. then more vet visits. more medicine. eventually he said it might not go away.
Avatar f tn His mom rescued a stray cat about 3 months ago even though there was a possibility that the cat could harm me or my baby. Pregnant women aren't suppose to come in contact with cat urine because it can affect an unborn child. Also, being that it was a stray I thought it was completey irresponsible for her to bring it in the house without having seen a vet first. I asked for the cat and the litter box to be left in her room to avoid any risks.
165078 tn?1255610007 My dh had bad allergies when he was young and grew out of them. I had no allergies until I turned 28 and now I suffer from them and terrible sinus infections. When choosing a pediatrician, we went with a group that specializes in allergies thinking it was inevitable that our dd would have allegy issues. Well, sure enough, by 8 months of age or so, she was put on pediatric Zyrtec (liquid form). She doesnt mind it at all, must taste good. You will have to make sure your home is extra clean...
Avatar m tn It is very well due to the compromised immune system AND allergies, allergies with people will manifest themselves with sneezing,watering eyes...respiratory problems etc...BUT with cats the allergies show up as skin conditions.... We can go into tons of info together, I will help you all I can. First of all the food she is on is an EXCELLENT food, however is it CHICKEN/turkey?? for some reason some cats are highly allergic to poultry....

Avatar n tn My female cat whos about 5 and spayed, has been straining to poop and also has been furiously licking her bottom area and also one of her legs is down to the skin. Is this an allergy to litter, or food or ?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I had and believe i still have a scary amount of blood in my urine. I had a cat scan done of my entire lower abdomen and a battery of blood tests. He said there is no sign of infection and no visible stones. I am on my period. He felt the stones passsed when i gave the initial sample which was completely red. He said there may be a small stone still working iys way out. The pain level has subsided but i am concerned about the blood i am seeing. The dr did not seem to be as concerned.
Avatar n tn I too, suffer from myriad food allergies, amongst other things.
Avatar m tn I don't know what type of allergy your little Meeka might have if any. I've been studying and it seems the most common allergies are pollen and food allergies but could be something else that's environmental. Being that there's dandruff on her and Basil it could also be some type of dermatitis or hormonal. I can't find information on Acidurin tablets such as efficacy, dosage, side effects or long term effects.
1492345 tn?1289259468 It's horrible to watch. I researched, and found that some vets are having success treating cat allergies with zyrtec. The generic is cetirizine and it is available OTC. Our kitty weighs 10 pounds. The vet had us start with 1/2 of a human dose (24 hour pill, 30mg). We now give him 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill at night (a human dose split in two), and for a while his itchy/scratchy definitely got better. I also suffer seasonal allergies, and the last week has been horrible.
1356964 tn?1302091035 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...
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi. I definitely have allergies (cats/ragweed) and asthma. For years, I just lived with it, but in the past six, I've gone all out to treat it. Yes, I have a cat in my life on weekends, and it's ragweed season now. However, I've been battling what I think is an infection that everyone keeps telling me is just allergy/asthma. Two years ago in August, I was sick, vomiting I was so ill. Twice, two weeks apart. From that point on fatigue never left me.
Avatar f tn It appears that people with cat and dog allergy, particularly those allergic to cat albumin, may also be allergic to ferrets. The proteins causing the allergies are found in the hair, urine, feces and bedding material of ferrets. You can check whether you are allergic to ferrets by getting allergy testing done. Skin tests are used for this purpose. This test involves pricking, scratching or injecting hair/fur extracts of ferrets into the patient’s skin.
Avatar m tn Well, when I read the ingredients of the new can food and saw that it has corn flour in it, I thought I found the problem because the vet was suspecting of allergies and I remembered that my cat had allergies to corn before (corn litter.) So I asked the vet to change his food. Now he is taking the Medical Mature formula (1 1/2 can a day) and that solved the diarrhea, but the vet still can't find a solution for his swollen and painful anal problem.
Avatar n tn The third time (now) They did urine sample revealing protein and blood in the urine and also a slight pusseness of the throught and still no strep. CAT scan normall and we are awaiting the blood results tomorrow. Can anyone give some clue as to what this might be.
Avatar n tn he is allergic to cars but seemed to grow a immune to the short hair cat, do you think the long haired cat sets it all off.
Avatar dr m tn ” Due to this “hypersensitivity,” the nose and sinuses can be overly sensitive, reacting to stimulants such as weather changes, chemicals, scents, and even allergies. Chronic stress that results from sleep deprivation also can heighten your immune system. Is It Hormones or Your Breathing? A number of other studies point out that UARS patients are more prone to have cold hands or feet, hypothyroidism, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, chronic fatigue, and various other “somatic” syndromes.
