Allergies are the worst! Constant sniffling, itchy eyes and nonstop sneezing… we’ve all been there. But did you know our furry friends experience these symptoms too?

Different types of grass, pollen and dust can cause our pets to feel down in the dumps. They may start scratching their skin, creating painful open sores that can become difficult to treat. These skin infections can become costly for pet owners.

According to Dr. Evan Antin, there are three types of pet allergies:

  1. Flea bite hypersensitivity
  2. Food allergies
  3. Seasonal/environmental allergies

So what do you do if your pets start sneezing and wheezing? The best thing you can do is take them to a veterinarian. The vet can assess the issue and come up with the perfect solution to fix the problem. This is usually done with a personalized allergy test to identify exactly what your pet’s allergic to, then an oral medication tailored to alleviating the symptoms.
