As spring comes into full swing so does the dreaded hay fever season! Believe it or not dogs can actually suffer from hay fever as well.

 

A low percentage of dogs are affected each year and their symptoms show up somewhat similarly to humans. 

Symptoms of hay fever can develop at any point in a dog’s life, it is  most likely to begin when your pet is between 1 and 3 years old. Certain breeds, such as Boston terriers, Cairn terriers, Dalmatians, Irish setters, poodles, schnauzers, Scottish terriers, West Highland terriers and wire-haired terriers, may be more prone to developing hay fever than other purebred or mixed-breed dogs.

Here’s what these symptoms may look like in your pet.  When you start to see pollen spreading or your hay fever symptoms start popping up this is when your dog may also start to experience these dreaded allergies.  Once the first hard frost or balmy summer days arrive the hay fever symptoms should subside for both you and your dog

A dog with hay fever is quite often very itchy all over his or her body. This itch often translates into a  a rash that breaks out on the dog’s face and feet. This rash may case the dog to scratch and chew so much that the had on his or her eyes and feet may start to thin. These types of symptoms are often indicative or an atopic allergy or an allergy caused by an inhaled allergen causing skin issues rather than respiratory problems. When hay fever strikes in dogs they may also experience runny noses, sneezing and watery eyes.

Much like helping a human cope with hay fever there are a few different ways to help your dog feel better is he or she is suffering from these seasonal allergies :

Seeking support from your vet

Take appropriate vet prescribed topical or oral medications

Cooler temperature baths

Trimming or buzzing your dogs coat if long haired

Keep your dog indoors more often when the pollen levels are high

filter the pollen out of the house with air conditioner at night

soaking your dogs paws in epson salts (do NOT let the dog lick his paws with the salts on)

Oatmeal baths can help soothe irritated skin

keep your dog’s bed, toys and linens washed and clear of pollens.

Ask your vet about allergy shots

No one likes allergy season so when it strikes be prepared to take care of yourself and your four legged friend!

    Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that truly knows what they’re discussing on the net. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
