seasonal allergy tips
• If your pet chews at his paws, make sure to gently clean them when he comes in from playing or walking outside. Using even just plain warm water, or adding a little bit of a gentle pet shampoo can help to remove some surface allergens.• Add fish oils to his diet. Using Omega-3 oils (e.g. cod liver oil or salmon oil) can help to increase the overall health of his skin.
• Use a hydrating shampoo. Ask your vet his advice on gentle hydrating shampoos to increase the skin’s natural resistance to irritation.• Despite these simple steps, many allergic pets will continue to have signs; consult with your vet on what they feel is the most appropriate form of treatment long-term.
