What are the different types of Pet Allergies?

  • Food Allergy
  • Contact Allergy
  • Flea Allergy
  • Inhalant Allergy

The canned dog food or kibble that you buy at the store isn’t the best way to feed your pet when they have an allergy.  The ingredients that you find in those commercial pet foods such as wheat, corn, soy, rice aren’t the typical foods for a dog. So, it’s not unexpected that they develop an allergy to them.

Raw Pet Food

When you feed your pet raw food on the other hand, it gives your pet the nutrients they need in a way that their system can deal with. Meaty bones, muscle meat and organ meat help to restore the healthy gut bacteria which play a big role in allergy prevention.  Another way to improve their gut health is with Max-Immune Forte™. The components in Max-Immune Forte™ contribute to comprehensive immune support and gut health for all dog and cat breeds.

Fleas

Fleas can cause hives, dermatitis and major itching for all kinds of dogs. And they can be difficult to get rid of. Even when you kill the fleas living and breeding on your pet, you still have to take care of the eggs that can hatch around your house.

You can treat with chemicals since they get the job done quickly but these products can be problematic. If you want to treat with natural flea control methods, they may take longer to work so you must be persistent.

Reduce Exposure

Minimize Exposure to allergens that are airborne. If your dog has a runny nose, sneezing, swollen eyes or reverse sneezing, this can be caused by exposure to airborne allergens.

How can I reduce my dog’s exposure to allergens?

  • Keep your pet indoors when the pollen count is up.
  • Use an air filter in your home.
  • Wipe the surfaces in your house with a damp rag to pick up the dust.
  • Use HEPA filters in the vacuum.

There are Herbal Antihistamines Available for your Pet.

Quercetin, a plant flavonoid acts as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory product that blocks the production of histamine to prevent allergy symptoms.  It can also halt the allergic reaction and calm itching and respiratory symptoms.

These basic steps help to ensure that you’ve dealt with the most common causes of allergies in dogs and relieve the symptoms in a safe and natural manner. We always recommend that you consult your vet.
