Support for Cats with Allergies
Cats can have seasonal allergies just like people. A cat’s immune system will respond and react to everyday allergens found in the environment. Like people, cats can have an allergy to pollen, mold, grass, ragweed, and dust mites. They can also be allergic to certain household products such as cleaners, carpet fibers, carpet deodorizers, insecticides, rubber, and other things in the form of contact dermatitis. Your pet’s immune system might overreact to these common unharmful environmental substances.
How NHV Supplements Soothe Allergies in Cats
You can help support your pet’s immune reaction to these airborne irritants by using herbal supplements. Made with powerful, yet gentle ingredients such as eyebright, feverfew, and Sweet goldenrod, Alge-Ex helps to soothe your cat’s histamine response. This remedy for cats with seasonal allergies is vet-formulated and pet-approved. It's 100% natural and completely safe to be taken along with conventional medicine, and easy to administer. Order NHV supplements today, or contact us to speak with one of our pet experts about the best natural remedies for your cat.
It’s best to ensure that your pet is not dealing with skin allergies due to food allergies. If you suspect this, try a different brand of food that is clean, holistic, and without preservatives.
Bathing your pet is also an excellent way of helping your cat cope with seasonal allergies. Bathing helps remove pollen, mold, and other allergens on cats and also provides relief. Make sure to give your pet plenty of filtered water.
Never attempt to diagnose your cat on your own. Your vet will be able to perform the required test and make the necessary suggestions.

What are the common symptoms of seasonal allergies in cats?
Cats with seasonal allergies will often have runny eyes, nasal congestion, and itchy skin.
What is histamine?
Histamine is a substance created by the immune system in defense of foreign material. In cats with seasonal allergies, histamines can cause runny eyes and nose, sneezing, and itching, all of which can potentially help the body to flush out the foreign materials. Sometimes histamines are helpful, protecting the body against actual threats. While other times, the immune system overreacts and releases histamine when it is not needed.
I'm not sure if my cat has seasonal allergies, but I want to try this supplement. Could this cause my cat’s immune system to overreact if my cat doesn't have allergies?
Alge-Ex is safe to give to pets who do not have any known allergies. The herbs help to balance the immune response. They will not cause this immune response to over or underreact.
What is the difference between Alge-Ex for cats and Alge-Ex for dogs?
