It’s allergy season, and don’t we all know it! Don’t forget to pack Kleenex when you go out to practice and play with the puppy, or take your benadryl before hand. Speaking of benadryl, I have benadryl to thank for both my childhood dogs! My mother has a bad reaction to benadryl. It makes her sleepy but still functional, and so she would make some interesting decisions during allergy season- such as let’s get the kids dogs, honey! I thank Benadryl for Pee-Wee my Maltese, and Pal, my Great Pyrenees. Poor mom, though, after the season was over we’d hear her saying she had NO idea why she’d gotten them, though she was always glad she had.
What do you do when your DOG has allergies? While they may not be allergic to all the pollens this time of year like we are, there are many other things dogs are allergic to. This can make them irritable, itchy, and slow up their agility runs! I’d like to tell you about a dog health website that I highly recommend. …. www.Mercolahealthypets.com. In the video below Dr. Karen Becker gives a holistic non-drug approach to this common problem.
