Pet Allergy Season!
Changing seasons often bring about a variety of allergies for people and pets. During August, September, and into October many pet owners notice pets chewing on paws, scratching their skin, developing a rash and rubbing their ears. Weed pollens, grass fungi, and even leaves from trees can trigger these reactions.
The number one seasonal pet skin problem is still flea allergy dermatitis, a severe reaction to flea bites. A vet appointment is necessary to diagnose the problem and prescribe the necessary relief, whether it includes injections, oral medications, medicated shampoos or additional flea control. In severe cases, antibiotics or antifungal medications may be needed.

TIP - If your dog licks its feet a lot this time of year - try wiping its feet off with a damp cloth when it comes in from outside - many pollen/allergic reactions are initiated by contact through the feet.
