Spring is here, that means your pup might be experiencing some changes and could get allergies with all the pollen floating around. Here a few things we look out for as veteran dog parents.


 Some common signs and symptoms of spring allergies in dogs:

  1. Itching and scratching: Dogs with spring allergies may scratch, lick, and bite themselves excessively, especially in areas such as the face, ears, paws, and belly.

  2. Hair loss: Excessive scratching and licking can lead to hair loss in dogs.


How to help your pup with spring allergies:

If you suspect that your dog has spring allergies, it's important to take them to the vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Your vet may prescribe antihistamines, steroids, or other medications to help manage your dog's allergies.

Additionally, bathing your dog with a hypoallergenic shampoo, wiping down their paws after outdoor activities, and keeping your home clean and dust-free can help reduce allergen exposure and alleviate your dog's symptoms.
