Does Your Dog Have Seasonal Allergies?

If you get seasonal allergies, then you know how awful it can be to walk outside and start your day with a stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and a general yucky feeling. Thankfully, there are plenty of remedies that we can use to soothe these and go on with our daily lives.

Did you know your pets can also suffer from seasonal allergies? We all want what’s best for our four legged best friends, so how can we tell if our pet has allergies and what can we do to help them?

Here’s a quick run down of some common allergy symptoms to look out for:

– Scratching or biting their coat or skin

– Red, inflamed, or infected skin patches

– Excessive shedding (more than normal)

– Obsessive paw licking

– Boot scoots or licking their anal glands

– Chronic ear infections or red, waxy ears

– Respiratory issues, which may include: difficulty breathing, coughing, or wheezing

If you witness any of these symptoms in your pet, we highly recommend taking them in to see a vet! Why? Because it’s best to get a professional opinion before trying to figure out what it could be.

If your dog does have allergies, then there’s no real cure– but there are some ways that these symptoms can be soothed! Your vet may recommend avoiding certain allergens, more frequent baths, or wiling off your dog’s coat and paws after your walks. They may also recommend allergy medication or starting a flea and tick preventative.

What our clients are saying.

  • I recommend 100% the service provided by Working For Wags. I found my 16-year-old cat well and relaxed when I returned from vacation. Frankie made it easy to arrange for someone responsible to attend to all his needs with lots of TLC. I received texts and pictures daily. I would hear back quickly if I had questions or needed to change some of the instructions already given. All my gratitude for their outstanding care.

  • Angela did such an awesome job with our dogs! This was the first time we have left our dogs in a very long time due to 2 of the 3 being elderly and needing extra care. Angela was very attentive to their needs. We never had to worry about how they were doing because she would send updates via texts with pictures several times a day. Angela also brought up the mail and took care of garbage. I think the house was cleaner when we came home than when we left. I would not hesitate to have Angela back to watch out furry babies.

  • Working For Wags is a great service! We've used them twice this year and our dogs love their WFW caregiver! The entire staff is friendly, caring and professional. We highly recommend them for anyone looking for a reliable and affordable pet sitting service.

  • We had a great first experience with Working for Wags! They came to our house to feed our two pups for several days while we were on vacation. Following their visits, they sent us updates by text and pictures by email, both which were greatly appreciated. They also helped us try to troubleshoot some odd behavior from our dogs, which turned out to be related to a smoke alarm that required battery replacement and was scaring the pups. Overall, we had a very positive experience and will definitely use Working for Wags again when we are out of town. :-)

  • Justeen watched our cat for 5 days while we were gone for an extra long weekend. She also watered our plants and took the trash out even though we had forgotten to ask. When we came back our cat, who can be withdrawn after we've been away, acted like we had only been gone a couple of hours. We're very happy to have found this company.

  • I'd give them 10 stars if I could! The sitters are wonderful!! They are true animal lovers, and I trust them fully. One of my dogs has epilepsy, so finding sitters comfortable with the risk of a seizure can be tough. But, they came fully prepared and knowledgeable about what to do. If you love your dogs like I do, I highly recommend them!! 🐕💙
