Spring Has Sprung And With It, Pollen!
I don't know about you, but most everything around me is yellow! Yellow with the pollen being produced by all the budding trees, bushes and spring flowers. Its so heavy, the other day I thought I was seeing smoke but it turned out to be pollen being blown out of the trees!
Dogs and cats can get seasonal allergies just like their humans. In fact, it can be a bit worse as both cats and dogs sniff virtually everything. They can get the itchy eyes, runny noses and general discomfort just. like we can- they just can't tell us how they feel!
He is a list of signs your pet may show if they are suffering seasonal allergies-
Scratching and biting
Inflamed or infected skin
Scooting or lick anal region
Chronic ear infections
Coughing or sneezing
If you observe any of these symptoms, we advise you to speak with your veterinarian who can order testing and treatment. Just like humans, there is no "cure" for seasonal allergies but there are many ways your veterinarian can do to help you manage and help your pet feel better.
