Feline allergies can be overwhelming! There are less medications for itchy cats, and a lot of our feline friends won't take oral medications anyway. This emphasizes the importance of working up cat allergies. If we identify the underlying allergy (whether it's flea, food, environmental, or a combination) then we can minimize the use of chronic medications. Making it healthier for the cat, and less frustrating for the owner.
Today, Dr. Eva Ganz, DVM, Dip ACVD from the Metropolitan Animal Specialty Hospital in Los Angeles, CA joins me. Dr. Ganz has done research in feline allergies and has a passion for them! We discuss convincing owners to use flea prevention, how to diet trial picky cats, and our take on success of immunotherapy. You wanted more cats, you got it!
