The change in seasons is a universal process that can never cease and is important for the world to grow and prosper peacefully and merrily. Though the seasonal change is good, your pet might want to contradict with you at some conditions. These conditions commonly known as seasonal allergies in the pet are a big scenario that should be addressed well by you to take care of your pets well.
There have been surveys that have reflected some facts that you might need to know of –
- Allergies are common with cats and dogs and can be either due to food or seasonal allergies.
- There are some pets that develop allergies in both categories.
- Over half of the pet owners don’t know that their dog or cat can also get miserable with seasonal allergies, especially during spring and summer.
- These allergies can turn into a year-round problem if not addressed on time.
To identify whether a pet is affected by seasonal allergies or not, there are various symptoms that one can look at. These symptoms are mostly skin-related and include –
- Itchiness which further results in to inflamed and tender to the touch skin, and hot spots.
- Other signs include areas of hair loss, open sores on the skin, and scabbing.
- Pet can also have ear problems and respiratory issues, and
- Problem with their immune system.
For better and resilient immune system, make sure that your allergic pet’s diet should be very low in grain content, as the foods that create or worsen inflammation are high in carbohydrates.
Other than this, the veterinarian of Ambassador Animal Hospital, the best veterinary hospital in Windsor, suggest that you provide your pets with some Seasonal Allergy fighting Supplements like –
Quercetin: A bioflavonoid with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties suppresses histamine release from mast cells and basophiles. Histamine is responsible for much of the inflammation, redness and irritation characteristic of an allergic response.
Bromelain and papain: These are proteolytic enzymes that help to digest proteins and increase the absorption of Quercetin, making it work more effectively. This three together also suppress prostaglandin release which also causes inflammation.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: It helps decrease inflammation throughout the body. By adding them into the diet of all the pets especially the ones struggling with seasonal environmental allergies is very beneficial. Krill oil, salmon oil, tuna oil, anchovy oil and other fish body oils are the best sources of Omega 3 fatty Acids.
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil contains Lauric Acid that helps decrease the production of yeast. Using fish body oil with coconut oil in your pet’s body can help moderate or even suppress the inflammatory response.
