Just like people, pets can suffer from sensitivities to airborne and/or foodborne allergens.

While allergies are most common in dogs, they can affect cats, too. At Parkview Pet Hospital, we provide allergy testing and treatment services for pets in Long Beach and the surrounding areas. When you bring your pet to us, our team will identify what they are allergic to and create a personalized treatment plan to help them overcome their symptoms.


Pets who suffer from allergies exhibit the same symptoms as people, including coughing, sneezing, hives, and itchy skin. They may also be more prone to repeated ear infections and gastrointestinal symptoms. In some pets, allergies cause dermatological conditions, skin disorders, and/or excessive hair loss and shedding.

When you bring your pet to us for allergy testing, we will conduct diagnostic tests to determine which environmental allergens are causing a reaction in your pet. If we suspect that your dog or cat is suffering from food-related allergies, we will work with you to create elimination diets to get to the root of the problem.


Once we have determined what your pet is allergic to, we can create a plan for eliminating or managing their symptoms.
In cases of food allergies, this typically means eliminating the offending ingredient from your pet’s diet permanently. We may also recommend hydrolyzed foods or injectable allergy medications.

Oral and injectable allergy medications may be used to treat your pet’s reactions to airborne allergens. We may also recommend treatment programs to desensitize your dog or cat to allergens that are frequently present in their environment, such as grass or pollen.


If you live in the Long Beach area and believe that your dog or cat is suffering from allergies, we can help. Parkview Pet Hospital proudly provides expert allergy testing and treatment services in Long Beach, and our staff would be honored to be entrusted with your pet’s care.
