8 Natural Remedies for Dogs with Seasonal Allergies


The same way humans react to weather changes is how dogs also experience seasonal allergies. You will notice that dogs have moments where they seem to be uncomfortable and in pain. This usually has to do with seasonal allergies. The common type of seasonal allergy in dogs is pollen allergy, caused by the growth of allergenic plants, usually during spring, summer, and fall. Your pet tends to suffer more during these periods [1] but seasonal allergies can happen anytime.

Common signs [2] that your dog is having an allergic reaction to seasonal change include itchy skin, hives, recurrent ear infections, red swollen eyes, runny nose, fits of sneezing, diarrhea, vomiting, and swelling of the face, ears, lips, eyelids, or earflaps. This can cause serious discomfort for your dog so, you must know the remedies to improve symptoms and manage the condition.

Your veterinary doctor may recommend medications like Benadryl, which helps to treat mild-to-moderate allergies in both humans and animals. However, seasonal allergies can last for weeks so if you aren’t too comfortable with administering drugs to your dogs for such a long time, you may prefer natural home remedies [3].

Here are some easy ways to treat seasonal allergies in your dog. The remedies include diet and topical methods.
