Can cats have pollen allergies?

oregpsnowMarch 1, 2010

I have had my cat almost two years now and a few times a year she gets drippy eyes. They are just a bit wet - no sign of pain or inflammation in the eyes. This time it started the very day the tree pollen levels shot up and my allergies appeared. I know I am allergic to tree pollen, but can my cat be allergic, too? It doesn't seem to bother her. I wipe them a few times a day with a tissue or TP to keep them clean.

Can cats have pollen allergies?

Yes, cats and dogs get allergies. As long as she doesn't rub her eyes or squint, the discharge is clear, and there is no redness, it isn't a problem and wiping out the excess tears is fine.
