Fighting Seasonal Allergies

Fighting Seasonal Allergies

As many of us know, allergies are no fun. But allergy season doesn’t just affect us—it can affect our pets, too. Grass, dust and other environmental allergens are significantly more present this time of year, and our pets can be allergic to them, too.

If your pet has environmental allergies, your veterinarian may suggest allergy medication. But don’t give your pet any medicine unless you’ve been instructed by your veterinarian to do so. Frequent baths can help remove allergens from your pet’s coat, and wiping his feet before he comes inside can keep him from tracking allergens indoors. You should also vacuum and dust your home regularly to keep it allergen-free.

If you suspect your pet is suffering from seasonal allergies, call Pet Medical Center of Edmond at (405) 757-2132 to schedule an appointment.
