<p>OK now here's the joke, Does your pet have a Peanut Allergy? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]</p>

<p>Hey Smack,</p>
<p>My cat doesn't have a peanuta allergy, but he has a fish allergy! Was he meant to be ours, or what? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]</p>

<p>Amy,</p>
<p>I guess I didn't understand if KathyAnn was worried about her pet having a peanut allergy and taking Advantage or her child being around the pet if it has taken Advantage [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]</p>
<p>She will have to let us know.</p>
<p>Isn't that interesting about your cat, how did you find that out and what reactions did your cat have when it ate fish?<br />
I hope this isn't the next step with Pet Lovers...an allergy web-site for Pets OMG, I know they get a lot of the same diseases we do, so I guess the allergies come along with it.</p>

<p>Nothing to do with Advantage, since fleas are not indigenous to Alaska and we don't tend to have problems with them, but my cat has allergies. He breaks out badly on his chin, occasionally on his belly, and his ear (only one) gets goopy and smelly. We've been treating it since we got him 3.5 years ago. He was a stray, so we don't know his entire medical history, but since the prescription low-allergen food we tried didn't help (at $10 for a 4lb bag), the vet thinks it's environmental allergies that we may never determine. Poor Bob! But the occasional cortisone shot works wonders for a while. Certainly, this stray found the right family to adopt!</p>

<p>KathyAnn - we used this product last year on our cat, and Cayley had no problems/reactions.</p>
<p>One other thing KathyAnn - I don't know if you're aware of net etiquette (AKA netiquette), but TYPING ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERS means you are YELLING!</p>
<p>I hope you don't take offense to my humble request that you use small letters to type your posts. It not only means "shouting" or "yelling", but it is also difficult to read and people may not read posts written all in caps. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]</p>
<p>All the best,</p>

<p>Smack,</p>
<p>Regarding Little Foot's fish allergy, we adopted him almost two years ago from a family who had found him as a stray. They kept him for four years, then decided they just didn't want him anymore (hard to believe, as he is an absolute angel). Anyway, a few weeks after we got him he started vomiting and scratching a lot. It took me a few days to realize that I had been giving him a new case of food that I bought, and that they were all fish flavors. His prevous owner confirmed that he is allergic to fish, she just forgot to tell me. </p>
<p>I not only read labels for us, but for the cat as well!</p>

<p>I would just like to say what happened to us a few weeks ago involving a pet. My husband brought home a dog to "puppy sit" and the owner sent a couple of boxes of treats with her. My pa daughter started breaking out in hives and when my husband looked at the treat box it said "now,new peanut flavored treats". Luckily my husband figured it out in time and washed her hands thoroughly and gave her benadryl and the hives went away.</p>
<p>I also want to ask a question. Sometimes my dd will break out in hives where a dog licks her. We make sure our dogs' food is peanut free and my mother also. (She wouldn't let the vet give her dog a peanut flavored treat even though dd wasn't going to be around.) Anyway, do any of you have that problem? I know of one other little pa boy that has a reaction when he is licked by a dog. She's been tested and is not allergic to dogs.</p>
<p>Thanks for your help!</p>

<p>For years I thought Kevin was allergic to dogs, because sometimes he would erupt in hives after being licked. I'm starting to think it is what the dogs are fed, since it doesn't happen with all dogs (although I know it is possible to allergic to some dogs, not all). He's never been tested.</p>

<p>We've had the same thing happen with our PA son. It happened once or twice with our own dog and I've called about the food and there are no peanut/nuts involved. I don't know it is weird. You would think it would happen all the time.</p>
