About Feline Allergies

Allergies are a common illness affecting cats. Feline allergies are characterized by the body's abnormal reaction to internal or external stimuli and are caused by many different factors. Allergic reactions can be different from one cat to another, even for the same allergen. It is important to try to find the cause for of allergies, even though it can be difficult. Along with working towards finding the cause, the use of herbs is recommended to ease the symptoms, and also to strengthen the immune system.

What is Nettle-Eyebright Gold?

Nettle-Eyebright Gold is a combination of herbal ingredients designed by our holistic veterinarian for feline allergies (allergic rhinitis or hay fever). The herbs, Nettle and Eyebright are two of the main ingredients and have been used extensively for natural support of seasonal allergies. Other herbs in this formula help to support the immune system and the specific reactions experienced by cats when airborne antigens affect them.

What is Nettle-Eyebright Gold used for?

Allergic rhinitis (or hay fever), a condition commonly experienced by humans, can be experienced by cats in much the same way. Tissues in the nasal passages become inflamed and itchy. You may notice your cat rubbing his or her nose to gain relief. Watery, red eyes, sneezing and excess nasal mucous are all common signs of allergic rhinitis. Springtime symptoms are usually caused by tree pollens, while weeds and other plants like grasses, can be the culprits as the weather gets warmer in summer and fall months.

Recommended for intermittent use, as needed.  May help with occasional discomfort associated with seasonal allergies.

Other substances can also elicit the same types of symptoms. Fungal spores and molds may be present indoors, particularly in damp areas like basements or garages. Dust or dust mites are common triggers and are found in carpets, bedding, window coverings, mattresses and furniture covered with fabric. Sensitivities are not experienced the same way by everyone or every pet but, rather, are unique to each individual's immune system. It may be helpful to avoid having your cat in areas (outdoor or indoor) that seem to make the symptoms worse. An air purifier indoors can also be beneficial.

When pollens or other microscopic particles are inhaled by cats with overly sensitive immune systems, a chain reaction occurs. A sensitized immune system will produce antibodies to combat the antigens. The antibodies cause other chemicals to be produced in the body, called mediators. One common mediator is histamine. It is the mediators that have an affect on the tissues, particularly on the nose, eyes and respiratory tract.

Nettle-Eyebright Gold targets this reaction in four ways:

  1. By providing natural anti-histamines
  2. By supporting the overall health of the immune system
  3. By providing ingredients that support the comfort of nasal passages, decrease excess mucous production and support the respiratory tract
  4. By helping with inflammation that can cause discomfort

Can my cat take Nettle-Eyebright Gold with medications?

Not to be used with hypotensive drugs.

Itch Support Gold for Cats 661822000755

What is Itch Support Gold?

Use this product for itching, scratching and itchy paws caused by a known or unknown allergy. 

Itch Support Gold is a combination of nine herbal ingredients for skin-related symptoms when felines come into contact with an allergen* (a substance that triggers an allergic reaction). For some cats, skin allergies are a constant condition, and for others it may be seasonal or occasional. Skin conditions due to allergies are an increasingly common disorder in pets and are a frequent cause for visits to the vet.

Itch Support Gold is a drug-free alternative that addresses the physiological mechanisms that cause the skin (including on the paws) to become uncomfortable, red, and sometimes unbearably itchy. This formulation works with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to target the underlying imbalance and restore health from the inside out. It works without the harmful side effects commonly associated with long-term use of prescription medications.

*Itch Support Gold is not for acute or severe allergic reactions. If your cat requires immediate or emergency medical attention, please call your veterinarian or nearest veterinary clinic. 

Itch Support Gold does not address emergency allergy situations such as anaphylaxis.

What is Itch Support Gold used for?

Just as people can experience allergic reactions of all kinds, cats are also susceptible to irritants and allergens they encounter in their environment or in their diet. Some cat breeds have a greater incidence of allergies that can affect their skin, which may decrease with age.

For felines, the primary way an allergy manifests is through the skin. Flare-ups are often chronic and/or recurring, and despite many efforts, become a condition that must be managed. Finding out the cause of the allergy can be a long but necessary process.

The allergen (the substance that induces the allergy) is introduced into the body in one of four ways:

  • It may be something your cat has come into physical contact with
  • It may be in your cat's diet
  • It may be something that has been inhaled (airborne)
  • It may be from a flea bite (usually from flea saliva)

If the body is sensitized to that particular allergen, it will react as if it is under attack and an allergic reaction will ensue.

Naturally, the most beneficial approach is to remove the allergen or limit exposure if the allergen is known; however, there may be cases in which this is difficult (such as with a grass allergy).

Allergies that affect the skin may appear as:

  • Increased and sometimes incessant itching and scratching and/or licking
  • Redness
  • Moist skin, dry/flakey skin or scabbing
  • Itchy ears (and possible ear infections)
  • Swollen and itchy paws

The itching may be all over the body or localized in one area. Your cat's behavior may also change, since a constant state of itchy discomfort can quickly lead to irritability, disrupted sleep, exhaustion and snapping. If repeated scratching causes the skin to break, this can create an opportunity for an infection.

Rather than mask or temporarily suppress the symptoms, Itch Support Gold helps to support a healthy immune response to allergens. The herbal combination also works synergistically to decrease itchiness, whether it is pervasive or only in certain areas. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the name for this type of treatment is termed an External Wind formula. The element of "wind" can refer to symptoms that appear suddenly, change quickly and affect the surface (like the skin).

Most cats will not react to the compounds they encounter in the home or outdoors, so what can cause skin allergies or sensitivities? For cats that have a sensitive immune system, the most common allergens are environmental allergens (contact allergy or atopy), food allergens, flea allergy or a secondary reaction from another health issue.

Examples of Common Allergens:

  • Pollens and grasses
  • Dust, dust mites and molds
  • Fragrances and other chemicals including those found in most laundry detergents, pet shampoos and household cleaners
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Prescription medication (including flea medication or medicated flea products)
  • Insect bites (including fleas)
  • Dander and feathers (may be in pillows, duvets or bedspreads)
  • Foods such as dairy products, beef products, soy, wheat, corn, chicken and chicken by-products
  • Foods or treats containing food coloring

Itch Support Gold provides support and maintenance for allergies that affect your cat's skin and the itchy, red, dry or moist unpleasant symptoms that result from allergic responses.

Allergic responses may also cause respiratory-related symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny, itchy nose
  • Breathing difficulties due to an airborne allergy

For respiratory-type symptoms related to allergies, you can also try Pet Wellbeing's Nettle-Eyebright Gold. This is an herbal formula that supports the respiratory system and is found here: http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/cat-allergies 

Always seek the consultation of your veterinarian as needed.

A Note from our Veterinarian...

This remedy works regardless of the allergy. Itch Support Gold does not contain pharmaceutical ingredients and results will depend on the severity of the condition and length of time since it began. Expect symptoms to gradually lessen over days or weeks. Results vary for each feline patient.

Once desired results are achieved, the formula may be discontinued and reintroduced when necessary. The formula does not need to be used constantly and is meant to be used when symptoms appear.

This formula was developed to be potent and effective in the shorter term, yet also work to support the underlying issues that cause the allergic response to flare up. This is nature's anti-itch formula.

Prevention and Avoidance:

Once you have identified the cause of your cat's skin reaction, try to eliminate exposure as much as possible. Sometimes this is possible and sometimes it's not. Remember that allergies are sometimes caused by multiple factors and your cat may be able to tolerate a certain amount of exposure before the factors compound and a reaction occurs.

As an example, a cat may be sensitive to laundry detergent, to dust mites and to flea bites. There may be a little itching on the average day but a big reaction to a flea bite. It is a big reaction because the immune system is already trying to deal with the first two allergens. When a third allergen is introduced, the scales tip. In this case, the immune system can respond to two allergens but not three. This is what is meant by compounding factors.

Try to eliminate all the allergens as much as possible and you will hopefully see less reaction, or no reaction, when there is occasional exposure to any of the offending irritants. Have a look at the list of common allergens that may be right in your household or in your cat's living environment.

Diet:

Similar to humans, cats may build up sensitivities to foods that are eaten daily, without a break. Just like humans, cats are healthiest with a varied diet. Be sure to switch your cat's foods at least from time-to-time. The most common foods that cause sensitivity or allergies in cats are:  beef products, dairy products, chicken and chicken by-products, soy, corn, wheat and artificial food coloring.

If food allergies are known or suspected, you may wish to try some homemade food recipes with simple ingredients. Your veterinarian may suggest an elimination diet, starting only with very simple foods and slowly introducing other ingredients. With the simplified diet, the symptoms should disappear. Then, when the allergen food is given, the symptom will flare up suddenly, and you will know to avoid that particular food in the future.

A species-appropriate raw food diet may also be an excellent alternative if your cat has food sensitivities (or doesn't). Look for a trusted source of raw cat food in your area and follow the appropriate health and safety precautions to serve it. Make sure the protein source is not one that your cat is sensitive to and look for meat raised without hormones or antibiotics. Feeding raw food is very easy and may be a more cost-effective option than "designer" allergy diets sold commercially. With food allergies, "simple" is better. Itch Support Gold may only be of minimal help if your feline continues to eat a diet that elicits an allergic response.

Nutrition:

Make sure your cat receives a diet high in nutrients. Consider supplementation of vitamins, minerals and especially Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Omega-3's have been shown to provide the body with support for inflammation, better ability to regenerate healthy new skin cells, and are extremely beneficial for allergic skin problems. A supplement like SPARK contains nutrients and superfoods from whole food sources, along with probiotics and enzymes for overall good health. This product can be found here: http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/spark-daily-nutritional-supplement-for-dogs-and-cats-50g

You can work with your veterinarian to uncover the causes of your cat's allergic responses and work out a treatment plan that you feel is the most beneficial. Please keep informed of any and all side effects (especially long-term effects) that may result from prescription medications like steroids and antibiotics.

Minimize insect bites:

You can do so by applying a natural, non-synthetic repellent. Use these often in seasons when biting insects are active in your area. Remember that sensitivities to fleas or flea saliva may cause reactions long after the fleabite has occurred. Allergies to fleabites are a common cause of allergic reactions on the skin.

Allergy or just dry skin?

A lower indoor or outdoor humidity can cause dryness in the air and skin can become dry and itchy. Monitor whether your cat starts to itch when you turn on the heat or air-conditioning in your home, or when the air becomes drier with a change of seasons. You can test the humidity in your house with a hygrometer from a hardware or home improvement store. An optimal humidity range is considered to be 35-50%. If the air in your home becomes too dry, a humidifier can provide the necessary humidity your cat (and you) may need to stay comfortable and healthy.

Allergic-type symptoms may be clues that your cat has another type of disorder, so please have your cat examined and diagnosed by a veterinarian.

Can my cat take Itch Support Gold with prescription drugs?

Itch Support Gold may have a hypoglycemic effect. It is suggested to monitor closely if using with blood-sugar-lowering drugs. Use caution with steroids.

Does it come with a guarantee?

Yes! Itch Support Gold comes with a 90 day money-back guarantee.

Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel for cat skin problems 661822000984

What is Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel?

This is a product you'll want to have in your cat's first aid kit. It is designed for any kind of lesion, hot spot, cut, bite, sting or wound. 

Cats can't help themselves. When something is wrong with their skin, they scratch and/or lick the area, sometimes causing further damage or infection. 

Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel is designed to:

  • Keep out the bacteria that could cause infection
  • Decrease the itch sensation
  • Help support the skin's natural integrity to heal

The herbs used to make it are double extracted for maximum potency, giving it a characteristic light brown color. You can see the potency of the active herbal ingredients, rather than the "fillers" or "carriers". 

Our veterarians developed this skin gel for cats with:

  • frequent itchy areas (regardless of the cause) 
  • hot spots 
  • wet (oozing) or dry skin areas
  • insect bites and stings
  • cuts and wounds (first aid)

Whatever the skin issue is, frequent application will be beneficial and will be safe if the cat licks it off. 

What is Itchy Owie used for?

Some felines are more susceptible to skin trouble. The skin can get dry or it can have moist, irritated patches. Insect bites and stings can also affect some cats more than others. These all cause unpleasant, even unbearable, itch and/or discomfort. There may be sensitivities to something in the diet or environment that can cause reactions on the skin of your cat. 

Directions:
Apply a thin layer of Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel over the affected area(s) two or three times daily. More frequent applications may be needed, especially if the cat licks the gel off. 

A Note from our Veterinarian...

Skin problems that persist are generally considered to happen for many possible reasons:

  • Is your pet exposed to toxic materials? 
    Common pest control chemicals in the garden, on the lawn or cleaning products in the home may be causing or contributing to a skin problem. Consider substituting more natural products to see if your cat's skin health improves.
  • Allergies?
    Allergic dermatitis is a condition seen routinely by veterinarians. Possible allergens can be pollens from weeds, trees or grasses, molds, dust mites or fleas. You may want to learn more about another Pet Wellbeing product if your cat is itching due to allergies:  Itch Support Gold.
  • Are there other health issues?
    Other health conditions, such as an underactive thyroid, can have symptoms that show up on the skin. By treating the cause, the secondary skin ailments can be taken care of. Sometimes, negative reactions to vaccines can exhibit as skin disorders. A foul odor on the skin is not considered normal and should be examined by a veterinarian. A common cause of smelly skin is yeast infection. 
  • What is your feline eating?
    The most common dietary allergens are wheat, dairy, corn, soy and egg. Sometimes, though fairly rare, our pets exhibit an allergy or sensitivity to something in their diet by breaking out on the skin, often on the back at the base of the tail. The skin is one of the body's organs of elimination. If the body is attempting to eliminate an allergen, the skin can become irritated, red and itchy. Assess the quality of the food you are feeding your pet and also potential ingredients that may be a problem. If you suspect your pet has food sensitivities but you can't figure out what they are, it may be helpful to prepare an allergen-free diet at home. Batches of food can be made in advance and kept in the fridge or freezer.
  • Is your cat bored, frustrated or irritable?
    Sometimes, psychologically-based issues can cause a pet to scratch. Over scratching can lead to abrasions that can become infected.
  • Parasites?
    Fleas, mange and ringworm require treatment specific to the type of parasite your pet has. Seek the consultation of your veterinarian for solutions. If your pet has discomfort or parasites such as ear mites in the ears, please see http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/cat-ear-mites Ear Clean Gold and http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/cat-ear-infections Ear Care Gold.
