Feelgood - AllergiClear Pets: Naturally prevents allergies in dogs & cats
Naturally prevents allergies in dogs & cats
AllergiClear Pets by Feelgood is a natural treatment for pet allergies. Your pet is just as susceptible to allergy triggers as you are! Even more so as they spend a lot of time outside! Main allergy culprits include pollen, plant spores, and even pollutants in the form of chemicals in the air and detergents used in the home and garden. But by far the worst allergy trigger is the saliva of a single flea! This causes a vicious cycle of itching and licking which quickly turns into full-blown flea bite dermatitis! If your dog or cat's immune system is strong and healthy, it can ward off the reaction to these allergy triggers, but this is not always the case...
Normally your pet's immune system will ignore particles entering the body such as pollen, house dust, etc. In many pets though, the immune system identifies flea saliva, grass and pollen as being dangerous to the system. This triggers the release of a substance called histamine, as well as other inflammatory compounds in the animal body, which cause an allergic reaction most noticeable on the skin. In some pets, the mucous membranes of the nose and respiratory tract are also affected.

Symptoms of flea bite dermatitis & allergies in cats & dogs
- Your pet licks or scratches at his skin and paws a lot
- Red patches on the coat (hair may also be missing)
- Wet or scaly areas that weep clear fluid
- Biting around the base of the tail or rubbing stomach raw
- Your pet rubs himself on furniture or carpets for relief
- Your pet seems listless and tired
- There may be sneezing and wheezing (in the case of air born allergies)
Conventional treatment of allergies in pets
Vets usually treat pet allergies supportively and with antihistamine and cortisone drugs which can block the release of histamine and therefore reduce or prevent the allergic reaction. The drugs may be short acting or long acting and come in tablets, or injections. Many vets suggest that their animal patients use cortisone and antihistamines to address allergies as well as to reduce symptoms. The vet will also work together with pet owners to build systemic health by looking at factors like pet lifestyle, nutrition, diet and exercise and surroundings in order to reduce allergies and maintain a healthier lifestyle for the animal in question.
Antihistamines or cortisone can be very effective and many pets with severe allergies are dependant on them. However, as always, the advantages of any medication should always be weighed against its disadvantages. Cortisone can also cause unwanted side effects and even make allergies worse in some cases. Furthermore, cortisone use over the long term can also put various body systems under pressure, especially the adrenal glands, so speak carefully with your vet before embarking on any medication.
Stop Weakening Your Pet's System with Antihistamine Drugs!
Disadvantages of Antihistamines and Cortisone:
- Antihistamines may lose their effectiveness over time
- They can cause sedation and reduce the alertness of your animal
- They may thicken mucus secretions and increase respiratory issues
- They may come with dangerous side effects over time
- Long term use may hamper various important body systems in the animal body
The natural way
There are many different 'natural' remedies for pet allergies on the market. Not all of these are as 'natural' as they claim to be, nor are all of them without their side effects. Because allergies involve both local reactions (release of histamine and inflammatory compounds) AND immune functioning, treatment of your animal should be holistic and aimed at treating the whole animal, rather than simply suppressing symptoms.
There are effective natural alternatives to the synthetic antihistamine drugs or cortisone which do not come with the same side effects and which also help to support, rather than weaken systemic health. In addition, it is important to support and maintain systemic health in your pet by maintaining a de-flea program & a healthy diet, exercising your pet regularly and avoiding household detergents which could weaken your pet's system. Do not expect medicines, whether natural or synthetic, to do all the work for your pet!

What are the ingredients?
AllergiClear Pets contains the following natural ingredients:
- Quercitin is a well known flavonoid considered to be a 'building block' for other flavanoids. Flavonoids are important and powerful anti-oxidants found in fruits, vegetables and herbs and can also reduce inflammation, boost immunity, strengthen blood vessels and improve circulation. Quercitin is known for its ability to block the release of histamine, thereby preventing allergy symptoms like itchiness, sneezing or watery eyes and nose. Other benefits include reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and cataracts, anticancer properties and the ability to promote stable blood sugar levels.
- Euphrasia officials (Eyebright) has been used since the Middle Ages to reduce eye inflammations. It may be used topically, but is very beneficial taken internally to reduce itchiness caused by allergies. Other benefits include the maintenance of good vision and eye health in animals.
- Silica (6C) a biochemic tissue salt which has an excellent effect on skin health from within. This is an excellent ingredient included in the remedy to address itchy skin or sores from scratching.
- Nat. Mur. D6 - a biochemic tissue salt which has an excellent effect in reducing and preventing runny nose and other conditions linked to inflamed and watery mucus membranes.
- Kali Mur. D6 - a biochemic tissue salt with a wonderful soothing decongestant and anti-inflammatory effect, helping to prevent the secondary infections of allergic rhinitis (such as respiratory tract infections). Regular use of Kali Mur is also beneficial in improving liver functioning, as a glandular tonic and to strengthen blood and nerve tissue.
- Calc Fluor (6C) this cell salt aids conditions resulting from immune system distress (as is the case during an allergic reaction). This biochemical tissue salt can help to promote energy when your animal is lethargic from allergies.
- Calc Phos (6C) Calc. phos. has a strong affinity with bone growth and repair of the cells in the body. It has also been used to aid recuperation after chronic illness and also for nutritional disorders and malabsorption in puppies.
