Changing seasons often bring about a variety of allergies for people and pets. During August, September, and October many pet owners notice pets chewing on paws, scratching or licking, developing a rash and rubbing their ears. Weed pollens, grass fungi, and even leaves from trees can trigger these reactions.
Flea allergy dermatitis, a severe reaction to flea bites, is something we see very often this time of year as well. Flea preventatives are a great way to help your dogs and cats from feeling miserable and itchy from fleas. There are many types of products from chewables to topicals and combination products that prevent fleas and heartworms.
A vet appointment is necessary to diagnose skin disease and prescribe the necessary relief. This may include oral medications, medicated shampoos, ointments, injections or additional flea control.
