Pets Causing Allergies? Homeopathy has an Effective Solution

An allergic reaction to a protein present in pet’s urine, saliva or dead skin cells (dander) due to an oversensitive immune system is known as pet allergy. Pet allergies mostly arise from cats and dogs, though any animal with fur can contribute to the development of pet allergies. Based on the symptom presentation of a pet allergy, some of the well-indicated homeopathic medicines include Allium Cepa, Euphrasia Officinalis, Arsenic Album, Apis Mellifica, and Sulphur.

Homeopathic Medicines for Pet Allergies.

Homeopathic Treatment of Pet Allergy

Homeopathy carries an excellent scope to treat pet allergies. Homeopathic medicines aim to give symptomatic relief by moderating the overactive immune system. These medicines help reduce the intensity as well as the duration of symptoms with every successive attack of an allergic reaction. Several signs of pet allergy including a runny nose, sneezing, urticaria, itchy/watery eyes can be managed well with homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic medicines for pet allergy are very safe to use and give long-term results.

Homeopathic Medicines for Pet Allergy

Allium Cepa – Natural Medicine for Pet Allergy with Marked Sneezing and Runny Nose

Allium Cepa is a useful homeopathic medicine for pet allergy with marked sneezing. Along with sneezing, watery nasal discharges are present. The nasal discharges are profuse and acrid leading to burning in the nose. A feeling of a lump at the root of the nose is also present. A crawling sensation or tingling in the nostrils may attend. In some cases where Allium Cepa works well, a runny nose alternates with nasal blockage.

Euphrasia Officinalis – Effective Remedy for Pet Allergy with Itchy/Watery Eyes

Euphrasia Officinalis is a well indicated homeopathic medicine for pet allergy with itchy, watery eyes. Redness, itching, and watering of the eyes are present. A gritty sensation of sand, burning and smarting sensation in the eyes is another attending feature. In some cases, the eyelids swell up, and a runny nose may accompany these symptoms.

Arsenic Album – Natural Remedy for Pet Allergy with Asthmatic Symptoms

Arsenic Album is an effective homeopathic medicine for pet allergy where there are asthmatic symptoms like wheezing, difficulty in breathing, and cough. An expectoration of yellow, green or frothy nature also appears in most cases. Constriction and oppression of the chest, coryza with burning, itching in the nose and sneezing is also present. Lying down worsens the symptoms. Excessive fatigue and anxiety may be present along with the above symptoms.

Apis Mellifica – Effective Remedy for Pet Allergy with Urticaria

Apis Mellifica is a natural homeopathic medicine for pet allergy with urticaria. The guiding feature for using Apis Mellifica is wheals on the skin with intense itching, burning, and stinging pains. The skin also is tender and sensitive to touch. Swelling and puffiness of face along with heat may also be present. Warmth may worsen the symptoms. A cold application may bring symptomatic relief.

The itching may be worse at night. Warmth also tends to worsen the itching. Burning and bleeding after scratching may be present. The affected skin area is sensitive to touch. Prickling sensation or formication may also arise with the above features

Symptoms of Pet Allergy

The symptoms of pet allergy include a runny nose, sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, nasal blockage, dripping of mucus from the nose into the back of the throat (PND), and cough. Apart from these, asthmatic symptoms including breathing difficulties, chest tightness, wheezing may also appear. In some cases, an allergic reaction may give rise to skin rash or urticaria.

Risk Factors Associated with Pet Allergy

Pet allergy arises from an overreaction of the immune system on exposure or coming in contact with danders (skin cells shed by the animals), saliva, urine, sweat or fur of the animal. Usually, our immune system cells produce antibodies to fight with infectious agents ( like bacteria, virus) and protect from becoming sick. An allergic person has an over-sensitive immune system and tends to produce antibodies against certain allergy-causing substances known as allergens. In case of a pet allergy, danders (skin cells shed by the animals), saliva, urine, sweat or fur of the animal act as an allergen (a harmful agent) against which an immune response is set up. A positive family history of any allergy or asthma puts a person at risk to suffer from pet allergy.
