Welcome to allergy season for your dog and cat! Did you know that your pet may be suffering for allergies without your knowledge? Check out these simple signs and tips to get your pet healthy and allergy free in no time.
Signs That Your Pet Has Allergies
- Gas, diarrhea, bloating
- Excessive itching
- Excessive paw licking
- Watery or gooey eyes
Types of Pet Allergies
If your pet is experiencing one or more of the symptoms listed above, they may be experiencing allergies. Below we will go into the types of allergies and the natural allergy remedies that will help rid your pet’s body of allergies.
If your pet has food allergies, they will experience an allergic reaction in the form of gas, diarrhea, bloating, vomiting or itching. (Think of a human who is lactose intolerant. They are allergic to the lactose in dairy products, and this allergy manifests itself in the form of gas, diarrhea, or vomiting. If a person is allergic to gluten, they may experience symptoms such as vomiting, severe bloating, or rash.)
Many pet food companies include ingredients that a dog or cat would NOT eat in the wild, and that their bodies are not programmed to process. (Think wheat, soy, cow dairy, and sugar.)
Natural Remedy: Digestive Enzymes
We recommend: Total-Zymes®
No matter what pet food your dog or cat eats, Total-Zymes® will cover a wide variety of ingredient types, for complete overall digestion. It contains 16 different digestive enzymes, each able to target and digest a different thing, from sugars, to dairy, proteins, carbs, grains and more. (See a complete list of digestive enzymes and their duties here under the “Ingredients” tab.) Digestive enzymes for dogs and cats will help their bodies digest and process the ingredients in any pet food so their bodies can retain the benefits and nutrition, not suffer from the allergens.
Your pet may have a negative reaction to airborne allergens such as pollen, mold, ragweed, grass, and dust mites – to name a few. If your pet is allergic to any of these, symptoms may include excessive itching, excessive licking, and watery or gooey eyes.
We recommend: Pet-Enzymes Plus®
Pet-Enzymes Plus® is an all natural systemic enzyme supplement formulated specifically for cats and dogs to reduce inflammation and eliminate proteins in the body.
Why Systemic Enzymes?
All allergens (including pollen, peanuts, and even cat dander) contain protein molecules. When these foreign molecules enter the body unannounced, the body’s immune system releases antibodies into the blood stream to rid the body’s system of the allergen.
Systemic enzymes (especially those that are proteolytic) are enzymes that focus on breaking down unwanted proteins throughout the body, including allergens. They are all natural, and do not have any side effects.
