For many of us, the autumn or fall season is approaching soon as the daylight hours shorten, the weather starts to cool, the leaves begin to change colors and drop from the trees. Many of the things we enjoy about fall are also triggers for those who suffer from allergies. The flowers of summer start to fade, but some plants wait just for this time of year to bloom. It is also harvest time for many crops which can cause large amounts of dust, pollens, and molds to be released into the air. Just like us, dogs and cats can develop an allergy or sensitivity to natural substances outside or in the air.
Sneezing, watery eyes, itching ears, itching skin, increased scratching, licking and chewing on skin areas, and hot spots are some of the most common signs. If the itching becomes intense, dogs and cats can damage their skin trying to scratch and relieve the sensation, which can lead to more problems like infection. Seasonal allergies may come and go depending on the time of the year and may be difficult to pinpoint the exact trigger that is causing your dog or cat problems. There are a variety of different treatments, medications, and products to help control seasonal allergies. Talk with your veterinarian about the best solution for your pet.
