Rule out fleas
Some of the above symptoms are more commonly associated with fleas, so it’s best to rule them out before consulting your vet for allergy advice. Check your cat’s coat for flea droppings and make sure you’re up to date with monthly treatments.
Can you prevent hay fever in your cat?
If your pet has an allergy the only sure-fire way to prevent it is to remove the source – but when it comes to pollens that’s almost impossible to do unless yours is an indoor cat. You could try washing your pet fairly regularly with a recommended shampoo and brushing them daily.
Anti-histamines and anti-allergy vaccines can be very effective at treating your cat’s allergies, so if you feel your cat is suffering from hay fever – or any other allergy – the best option is to visit your local practice to get specific advice.
