Just like humans, your cat may be allergic to a variety of things that they can breathe in, eat, or touch. Allergies in cats manifest when a cat’s body becomes sensitive to substances in their environment. As your cat tries to process and get rid of these irritating substances, they may show a variety of symptoms.
If your cat has allergies, some of the most common allergic reactions in cats cause the following behaviors, conditions, and symptoms: sneezing, coughing, wheezing, itchy and running eyes, ear infections, vomiting or diarrhea, snoring , swollen or sensitive paws, excessive licking (grooming), red or dry skin, or scratching.
If you feel your cat has allergies speak to your vet to determine the cause.
