Allergy season is right around the corner, and for us that means itchy eyes, stuffy noses, and scratchy throats. Did you know that pets can also suffer from seasonal allergies?

Symptoms may include skin and ear infections, hot spots on the skin, itchy or irritated paws, and an itchy or irritated rear end. Pet allergies and caused by the same environmental factors that impact humans - trees, pollen, grasses, etc.

If you suspect your pet has allergies, talk with your vet about allergy testing and medication.
