Keep your furry friends from suffering seasonal allergies

Calling all pet owners

It’s spring once again, and you know what that means: time to nip allergy season in the bud. However, what you might not have considered is that your dog or cat could be experiencing sensitivities to the same allergens you are, including dust, spores and pollen such as ragweed. Indeed, last spring, the question “can dogs have seasonal allergies?” appeared in more than 1,600 online searches by curious pet owners. Simply put, the answer to their question is “yes.”

Alleviate the itch

So how can you prevent Fluffy or Fido from dealing with irritated noses, itchy paws and watery eyes? Well, there are a few options. According to SmartyPaws, Inc., regular bathing, fatty acid supplements and even vet-approved antihistamines can help put your dog or cat back at ease. All About Cats Veterinary Hospital recommends the same, with an emphasis on staying in touch with your vet in the event of a severe reaction. 

Clear the air

Dogtopia® shares that keeping the air clean inside your home is also essential for removing allergens. Unhealthy air quality can feed seasonal allergies and should be prevented whenever possible. 

Regularly change air filters to cut down on airborne allergens that enter through open doors and windows,” Dogtopia writes.

One way you can do this is by investing in an air purifier for your home. Coway Airmega offers a wide variety of options designed for this very purpose and can ensure your indoor air is cleaner by capturing particles that may trigger allergies or asthma. With multi-stage filtration systems and the Coway Green True HEPA™ filter in many, you can make sure you—and your pets—are breathing easier through allergy season and beyond.
