If you suffer from hay fever, our little fluffy hay fever sufferers can totally sympathise!
In fact, the symptoms are very much the same, consisting of;
✫ Sneezing, coughing, wheezing
✫ Excessive grooming
✫ Itchy, running eyes
✫ Red or dry skin
✫ Swollen, sensitive paws
Breathing in pollen, mold, dust mites, & other “inhalants” is a recognisable trigger for people with allergies. & whether seasonal or environmental, these inhalants can be just as irritating for your feline.
Because our little lions cannot tell us exactly what they have eaten, touched, or inhaled before a reaction, it usually takes a close working relationship between the purrent & a veterinary team to find the culprit.
If you are noticing any of the aforementioned behaviour over the same seasons, your feline may be reacting to what they're breathing in.
From antihistamines & cleansers to even desensitisation therapy. There are options available for you & your feline.
