Allergies and Antihistamines for Cats

Allergies in cats are very common. We have some of the best allergy treatments and antihistamines for cats with allergies, so your best friend can feel better quicker, and you can too.

What are cat allergies?

So, can cats get allergies? Yes, they can, and unfortunately, it’s quite common. Just like us humans, cats can experience allergies and hayfever. There are a few different types of allergies cats can experience, the three most common being:

Environmental allergies

Environmental allergens include pollen, grass, mould and dust. Because it’s often hard to avoid these allergens, your cat may need allergy treatments to prevent flare-ups.

Flea allergies

A flea bite allergy in cats is very common. Cats can be allergic to the flea’s saliva, and when they’re bitten by one, it can cause a flare-up. It can make your cat's skin red, irritated and itchy, and it can spread further than the initial spot they were bitten.

Food allergies

Cats can be allergic to food, just like us. Food allergies can be harder to diagnose, but food allergies can be easily prevented once you find an appropriate diet for your cat.

Allergies in cats: symptoms

Some cat allergy symptoms can often be very similar to those of a human. Cat allergy symptoms can include:

  • Itchy, runny eyes
  • Red, dry or flaky skin
  • Excessive licking
  • Pulling or biting out hair
  • Chewing at paws or body
  • Vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Swollen, sensitive paws

Can I give my cat human antihistamines?

Can cats have antihistamines? Yes, they can. Antihistamines are a great defence against allergies for your cat. But can you give your cat human antihistamines? No, you definitely can not! There are specific antihistamines for cats. These will give them the best results, without causing them any nasty side effects. We stock the most effective antihistamines on the market, designed specifically for cats.
