How To Treat A Dog’s Allergies
How to treat a dog’s allergies is usually a desperation question when your dog is deeply miserable with allergy symptoms. With the exception of a few allergies, the best treatment for your dog’s allergies is actually prevention. For seasonal allergies such as pollen and grasses, your veterinarian can test and provide medication to help relieve your dog’s allergy symptoms, such as: itchy skin, sneezing, red, itchy eyes and drippy nose.
Most allergies that plague your dog can be prevented by a careful evaluation of the products you use on your dog and in your household, as well as the dog food you feed your dog.
How To Treat A Dog’s Allergies By Preventing Them
- Try to clean your home with all natural products, free of as many artificial chemicals as possible.
- Use mild detergents, preferably hypoallergenic when you wash your dogs bedding and forgo the fabric softener.
- When bathing your dog, stick to gentle, hypoallergenic shampoos and do not use shampoo meant for humans.

- Keep your home as dust-free as possible (I know, not easy when you have a dog.) I use a vacuum with a hepa filter built in. An air purifier is also a big help for your dog as well as the humans in the home.
