Keeping Cat and Dog Allergies Under Control

Allergies are a fact of life for many of us, and our pets aren’t immune to the effects of allergens, either. Dogs (and cats, to a slightly lesser extent) can suffer from food allergies, seasonal allergies, and even flea-induced allergies. Additionally, pets can experience skin disorders either as a result of their allergies, or from another condition entirely. Here in San Antonio, our job is to help you figure out what exactly your pet is suffering from so we can treat it properly and relieve your pet from their symptoms.
