Reducing Pet Allergens This Spring

After a long and dark winter, you and your dog are probably itching to get outdoors and enjoy the sun again. However, while spring is an ideal season for exploring, it’s also a prime one for pet allergens. Rather than skip the fun altogether, there are a few mindful ways to reduce and prevent your pet’s allergy discomforts this season. Read on to learn more.

What are the sources of allergens?

There are a handful of common and pesky allergens during spring. However, according to Pets Best, dogs and cats can have allergic reactions to a variety of common environmental and household substances, but can be especially prone to the extra pollen in the grass and air. Other common environmental causes of pet allergies include:

  • Dust
  • Dust mites
  • Grass
  • Ragweed
  • Mold
  • Dander
  • Feathers
  • Flea bites

What types of dogs are most susceptible to allergies?

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but a few breeds are more prone to allergies than others, including:

  • Retrievers
  • Setters
  • German Shepherds
  • Labradors
  • Short-snouted dogs such as pugs and bulldogs

Signs of allergic reactions.

The symptoms vary with every cat and dog. However, the following symptoms for both include:

  • Red or watery eyes
  • Excessive itching
  • Ear infections
  • Incessant paw licking
  • Head shaking
  • Sneezing and reverse sneezing
  • Hair loss, broken skin from itching, and inflamed skin
  • Red and inflamed paws

Treating and preventing allergies.

There are a lot of potential pests that can cause allergies in your pet. Consulting with a veterinarian and considering the following tips can help ensure your pet’s comfort this spring.

  • Feed foods or supplements rich in Omega 3’s.
  • Wipe your dog’s paws after being outside on the grass to get rid of any potential allergens.
  • Give a daily pet-safe antihistamine to ease his or her symptoms. Consult with your vet before administering anything to be safe.
  • Bathe your dog in a moisture-rich shampoo or lotion to nourish the skin and prevent irritation, redness and itching. A shampoo massager brush is a perfect tool to use to ensure the product penetrates the skin.

Depending on where you live, allergens can be a nuisance year-round, but are especially potent during the spring. Use these strategies throughout the year to ensure your pet’s comfort and health while battling allergies.
