Ever wondered whether your cat might be allergic to your dog? Here's our advice on whether cats can be allergic to dogs like humans can be...

Cats can be allergic to canine saliva, skin flakes, and urine, just like humans are, but it is rare and there is no research on it.

If your cat shows signs of allergy around dogs, it is more likely they are allergic to what the dog is bringing home on its fur, such as pollen, insects, or even fleas.

Fleas cause most cases of cat allergy. Diagnosing an itchy or overgrooming cat is complicated and requires a lot of veterinary input.
