Allergy Season - It Doesn't Just Affect People!

Spring brings beautiful flowers, blooming trees, and many other forms on new life, but for many of us, it can also mean the start of allergy season! What you may not realize is that your pets can also suffer from allergies, and while in many cases your pet’s allergies are mild enough to avoid intervention, there are times when it’s best for a veterinarian to intervene. Be on the lookout for the following allergy symptoms in your dog this spring season:

  • Excessive sneezing or nasal discharge
  • Red eyes or eye discharge
  • Increased itchiness or scratching
  • Biting or licking at paws

If you see any of the following signs in your pet, contact your veterinarian to discuss the possibility of allergies. When your dog attends daycare or boarding, ask our staff to be on the lookout for signs of allergies in your pet.

Daycare can be a great opportunity for your dog to expend energy without the need to be outside during allergy season! For more information, click here to visit our website.
