Learn How Dogs Can Suffer With Seasonal Allergies & Enter to Win a Gift Card! #ItchyPetSeeYourVet

In our little rural town, our veterinary office takes special care of both large and small animals.  I've always been impressed with the compassion and love shown to both my dog and cat when visiting the vet's office.  Our vet is a man who cares deeply for animals and only wants the best for them and their family's.  This is why, I often turn to our vet when I have questions or concerns and never feel like any concern is too small. 

This spring, if I suspect my dog, Roxy, is suffer with canine seasonal allergies, I will turn to my vet, Larry for advice on how to deal with the issue. 

I must admit, that canine seasonal allergies wasn't even on my radar of concerns.  I don't think that I've given much thought to the possibility of my dog suffering with allergies, or that her allergies are completely different from those which we might suffer with.  While my dog may be allergic to many of the same things as their human counterpart, ( mold, dust mites, tree, grass & weed pollens, and the saliva from insect bites) they present quite differently then we do.

Know the Signs of Canine Allergies

Remember this when wondering if your dog has seasonal allergies: ESP- Ears, Skin, Paws.  The most tell-tale sign is your dog will be itching and scratching.  She won't like having her ears handled, she may be scratching a lot, and be chewing on her paws.

Sneezing is not a sign of allergies in dogs, as it is in humans.  This is a common misconception, and one which I admit to.

Nutrition is Key, Ask Your Vet

Royal Canin Canada is the leading research-based pet food manufacturer and supplier.

My vet's office (and yours) can provide you with a whole line of Royal Canin foods not available at retailers.  Just ask your vet to help you find the food that is right for your dog.   One of the specialty foods you can ask for is a dermatology food that can be used to combat seasonal canine allergies!

So, this spring, don't hesitate to visit your vet's office if you suspect your pup has a case of seasonal  allergies.  They will be able to diagnose, and help your four legged friend get through the season with minimal discomfort and upset.
