Here are 6 signs to look out for to know if your dog has allergies to the pollen:

  • Very itchy/scratchy
  • Rash on face/feet
  • Thinning hair over dog’s eyes and feet (due to over-scratching)
  • Watery eyes
  • Runny noses
  • Sneezing

  • Give your dog a bath in cool water
  • Clip your dog’s coat if he has long hair
  • Restrict your dog’s time outdoors when pollen counts are high
  • Run the air conditionerovernight to filter pollen out of your home environment
  • Use oatmeal baths to soothe your dog’s irritated skin
  • Wash your dog’s bedding weekly with hot water and make sure you dry them completely
