Allergies

August 6, 2015

Allergies hit humans hard in the spring, but pets are most affected by allergies in late summer- specifically in august. Pets can be allergic to almost all of the same things as humans, and their symptoms are often similar to ours as well. Think your pet has allergies?

Great advancements in both foods and medications  have been made over the past decade to  help alleviate some allergic symptoms for your pet and help keep him or her more comfortable.

Call the team at Peterborough West Animal Hospital to discuss a treatment plan that best suits your pet.

 

Does your dog love to play in the water during the summer? It’s a great way to cool off, but also a great way for them to wind up with an ear infection, especially for dogs with floppy ears. Drying your pup’s ears with a towel after they play will help prevent ear infections. If an infection occurs your pet will require medication to treat the ear infection. There are also products that can be used to help keep the ear dry once the infection is cleared.

There is a 15% increase in ear infections during the late summer months.
