Have you noticed your pet itching more lately?

When the seasons change and the temperatures rise, you might notice your pet experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Excessive Itching and Biting at Skin
  • Sneezing
  • Swollen Paws
  • Visible Skin Irritation
  • Swollen, Watery, and/or Eye Discharge
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Hair Loss (Especially in Hotspot Areas of Biting)

So why are these symptoms occurring?

Summer Allergies.

Unfortunately, summer is the prime time for your pet to experience allergies.

Your pet can experience anywhere from a mild to severe reaction to those allergens.

Allergens during this time of year include:

  • Flea Bites
  • Pollen
  • Mold
  • Dust
  • Plant-Based Allergens
  • Insect Bites/Bee Stings

If any of these allergens come into contact with your pet, symptoms can show up relatively quickly (20 minutes) or can fester within their body and take years to produce symptoms.

Observe your pet and their behavior to determine which type of allergens they might be dealing with.

Additionally, some seasonal allergies are just that. Seasonal. If this is the case, your pet will luckily only have to deal with this temporarily.

Of course if this is not the case, they may have other symptoms that pop up in the upcoming seasons if not managed. It’s important you find someone you trust with your pet to see the type of allergens you are dealing with to determine the appropriate treatment plan.

Because some of these symptoms have been brewing in their body over time, a homeopathic vet may be the best route to treat your pet. They will look for natural ways to alleviate their symptoms.

In addition, it would be extremely beneficial to supplement. Supplements are the best way to make sure your pet is getting the nutrition and energy they need to help fight against these symptoms. We recommend Canine Immune Complete in order to do this. Click here to grab a bottle for your pet.
