How To Help Your Dog Deal With Seasonal Allergies!
As most of us know, seasonal allergies can be rough. Our immune systems go into overdrive resulting in itchy eyes, runny noses - you name it. Our precious furry friends deal with these allergies in a very similar way, commonly through itchiness and irritation. If your buddy suffers with sniffles in the spring, keep reading for a few tips and tricks on how to help your dog deal with seasonal allergies.
1) Ramp Up Bath Time For Your Dog
With your vet's approval, it might be beneficial to your dog to take baths more often along with the use of hypoallergenic anti-itch shampoo. Getting rid of any pollens or allergens your dog might've collected on their fur or skin will help prevent itchiness associated with seasonal allergies.
2) Avoid Dog Walks When Pollen Levels Are High
Typically, pollen levels are higher in the early morning or late afternoon. If possible, take walks in between these times to help avoid collecting allergens. You don't want to track allergens into your home where they can further cause itchiness and seasonal allergy sadness for you and your dog.
3) Make Sure The Air In Your Home Is Clean For You And Your Dog
Using a dehumidifier will help to prevent mold and keep the air in your home clean, for you and your pets. Changing air filters regularly will also help to eliminate airborne allergens, preventing seasonal allergy problems.
You should always consult your vet when it comes to your pet's safety and health.
