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.
