My sister's cat Edward has allergies. Edward does go to the veterinarian so that his allergies can be treated. Sis and Edward were in the waiting room of West Suburban Veterinary Clinic, and both were waiting to be called into an examination room. Poor Edward was hiding under the towels Sis draped over him, to ease his nerves, while in the waiting room. Edward got his bravery together to take a little peek to see if he was still in the waiting room where those veterinarians do their thing. Alas, poor Edward was still in the waiting room so back under the towel his little kitty-cat head went. Edward is doing so much better now due to his visit to the veterinarian. It was a costly visit according to Sis, but worth it!

Poor Edward. I used to feel like him waiting to go into the dentist's surgery. I wanted to be anywhere else but there.

You know like humans, animals also have food sensitivities masking as allergies, and there is a difference .

Yes, Edward has had the food-allergy tests. His troubles are pollen-related.

I will tell Sis that. She tried different methods, and I think she tried Benadryl too, but that did not help. Maybe a different kind of allergy pill would do it. He was itching like crazy and developed sores.

He really is. He has to take some pricy prescription medicine and he had to have an antibiotic, but he iw worth it.

I can imagine what Edward felt while under his towel and then peeking out seeing he was still there. I am so glad he is doing better now. What is poor Edward allergic to?

@Corbin5 Finding what an animal is allergic to is a hard business. I'm glad the Doc figured it out. Leah pup gets red sore ears every couple of months and I figure its unknown allergies. I squirt medicine in that the doc gave me and off we go though leah hates the entire business of being fussed with.

@sallypup I bet Leah is not happy about those squirts of medicine. Allergies really can make a dog miserable.

My vet recently started a fear free clinic and waiting room. I am not sure how that works. Maybe they spray pheremones around or something. Last time Milo was at the vet..he knocked down the vets model of animal teeth and broke it..bad Milo!

She may have a sad experience with the vet before that is why he feels that way when at the vet clinic. So, it's over and nothing was done for him maybe, so next time he will not be afraid anymore.

Well, Edward has been that way since he was a kitten, so I suppose he really does not like going to the vet.

He was itching so badly over the weekend he had sores, so I told Sis to use cold water clothes on the itchy spots to take the itch away. That helped him feel more comfortable until he got to the vet on Monday.

@Corbin5 My dog Ted had that happen to him, as a young dog. His skin was actually raw and bleeding, from the terrible itching. The vet gave him some kind of powerful shot, that really did the trick. He told me that it was from an allergy. Ted never again had this happen and he lived to be 14 years old:)

@kobesbuddy Edward's spots were raw and bleeding too. Edward's allergies do get a little better if the pollen count is not bad, but he still cannot get rid of them. I think he had an antibiotic shot to make sure his sores did not become infected. The medication does help him, thank goodness.
