Cat Allergy Checklist

Cat Allergy Checklist

Work with your veterinarian:

  • Ask your veterinarian about medications your cat is taking; some medications can trigger an allergic reaction in some cats
  • Keep a journal of other foods your cat may have eaten, so if there is a reaction, you can provide useful information to your veterinarian
  • Contact your veterinarian with any questions or concerns

Take precautions at home:

  • If you have more than one pet, feed other cats in a different location to ensure your allergic cat doesn't eat their food
  • Keep all cats out of the room at your mealtime, so they don’t receive table scraps
  • Don't give your cats human food or non-approved treats
  • Don't offer seemingly “harmless” items, such as toothpaste or edible toys, because they could contain a potential allergen
  • Keep your cats away from garbage and compost receptacles
