Allergy Season And Your Pet

Allergy Season And Your Pet

Allergy season comes around every year and people are sometimes not the only ones who suffer from it. Like humans, some dogs are more susceptible to pollen and mold spores than others. But unlike their human best friends, a pet’s allergy symptoms may be harder to spot. Some signs your dog or cat is suffering seasonal allergies include Excessive itching or redness, specifically on the feet or areas that come into contact with grass or other allergens, Inflamed or infected skin, Excessive shedding or uncharacteristic hair loss and more. Just because it is allergy season doesn’t mean your pet has to suffer. With just a few small changes, your pet can become more comfortable year-round. To start, make sure your pet’s diet isn’t the culprit of the allergies. Switch your dog to natural dog food, and make sure their treats are all-natural as well.

Allergy Season

Today we recommend feeding your pet only raw, dehydrated, or freeze-dried foods. If you are interested in preparing your pet’s food at home, check out the Yin & Yang cookbook. Then, slowly reintroduce your pet’s usual food and treats into their diet and watch for changes. You should also introduce a pre and probiotic into your dog’s diet, which can help their gut health and reduce allergy symptoms. It is also important that you maintain proper grooming during allergy season for your pet. De-shedding is vital to prevent irritation, and as the weather warms up, your pet is likely to shed more than usual. Bring them to Beautify the Beast and add a routine de-shedding to your groom, which includes a de-shedding shampoo, conditioner, and brushing treatment.
