Does Your Dog Have Allergies?

Posted by Play Admin on Apr 02, 2011 at 12:00 am

Every spring, we happily welcome blooming flowers and longer days. But for many, spring also brings... seasonal allergies. Between all the sneezing, sniffling and coughing we often overlook our poor four-legged friends. Did you know that dogs can get seasonal allergies too?

Symptoms vary and some are actually very similar to humans. Goopy eyes, sneezing, crankiness (okay, thats more common in humans)  -  all signs your pup is suffering from the pollen. The number one sign that your pet is allergic? Skin problems. Does your pup chew or lick his paws? Scratch his armpits? It's likely your pup is suffering from seasonal allergies.

What can you do to help? Visit your vet, they can help determine the source of the problem. Sometimes they will prescribe medication or recommend a different type of food. And although you've probably heard you should only bathe your dog once or twice a month - during allergy season you should up this to once a week. A bit excessive you say? Not so, check out this video of Dr. Becker on ABC's Good Morning America.

 

Dr. Becker makes a good point. Many of us suffer from seasonal allergies - and for all of those who share their bed with their pup (I'm guilty) bathing once a week not only helps relieve their symptons, it can help yours too!
