With spring well and truly set in, the flowers are blossoming and we are excited about the warmer weather. But one thing that will be on the minds of many is allergies. Dogs can suffer from similar allergies to us, so what can we do to help them feel more comfortable?
Common symptoms of allergies in dogs include:
- Red, itchy skin
- Excessive licking/biting
- Runny eyes
- Gastrointestinal upset
Treating allergies the natural way
At Herbal Dog Co, we believe in natural solutions. We believe they are better for your dog’s health while being more cost-effective than other treatments. You need to try and identify what is causing your dog’s allergic reaction to try and avoid the allergen in future.
We recommend consulting your vet to ascertain this, and also to check with them if the natural remedies you have in mind will be safe.
