Here it comes. That wonderful time of year when we sneeze, and our dogs itch. Dogs and cats manifest their allergies differently than we do, but they are allergic to the same pollens and molds that make us sneeze and our eyes water. Dogs will typically show their allergies with scratching , ear infections, and chewing or licking their feet. We have in the past had to rely on steroids with severe allergy signs in order to give some level of relief to these miserable dogs. The good news is that there are some new medications available to us that help with allergies without having to resort to steroids. Hooray for progress.
