Visit your veterinarian as soon as you notice symptoms. Your vet will take a complete history, conduct a physical examination where veterinarian may determine the source of your cat’s allergic reaction. If an examination is not sufficient, your vet will most probably recommend skin or blood tests and/or a special elimination diet, to find out what’s causing the allergic reaction.
