It’s the time of year most of us can hardly wait for, but unfortunately with Spring comes allergy season.
Has your dog started to exhibit any of the following: itchy skin, hot spots, watery eyes, gunky ears, skin irritation, shedding, hair loss and/or sneezing?
The following is an excerpt from the Herbsmith website:
An allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction to food, inhalant, or contact. The body’s defenses are signaled into an overreaction to a particular substance. This hypersensitivity often causes extreme heat in the animal, seen as reddened skin, hot weepy lesions, panting, restlessness and skin that may be hot to the touch. Herbsmith Clear AllerQi ® has Chinese herbs that cool heat and harmonize the body’s defenses to help support normal skin functions.
We carry many different products to help your pet make a smooth transition during this time including:
- Stop Paw Licking
- Hot Spots by Homeopet
- Honey – local honey from East Troy
- Skin & Coat Superfood
- Clear AllerQi by Herbsmith
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Salmon Oil to help with inflammation
- Skin & Itch by Homeopet
- Allergies Flower Essence by Pet Essences
- Skin Irritation Flower Essence by Pet Essences
- Spring Tonic by Animal Apawthecary
- The Furminator
- Stop Dog Itching
- Neem Protect Shampoo
In addition to these products switching your dog to a “cooling” food is a good idea. Try a food with cooling proteins such as duck & rabbit. We have a great selection and can assist you in finding one your dog will love.
