Does Your Dog Only Get Temporary Allergy Relief?
Do you want a healthy dog again?
When it comes to choosing a veterinarian for your dog’s allergy issues, be sure to ask yourself these critical questions:
- Has conventional veterinary therapy revolved around suppressing your dog’s symptoms and immune system?
- Are you frustrated by countless vet visits and hundreds of dollars spent addressing symptoms that never resolve?
- Are you hoping for a cure – a return to normal functioning for your dog?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to call a holistic veterinarian.
During the spring and summer, veterinarians expect seasonal allergies to be worse than normal for dogs and cats. Additionally, the number of dogs and cats acquiring food allergies is also rapidly increasing. This trend is reflected in the number of people who bring their dogs and cats for ear infections. Other common allergy symptoms include bald spots, itchy eyes and ears, itchy feet, excessive licking and chewing at arm and leg pits, and overall scratching. Some dogs and cats have runny eyes, noses and coughing as a result of seasonal allergies while food allergies may also cause diarrhea / loose stools and vomiting.
Allergies are overreactions of the immune system to known allergens. In addition, once a dog’s or cat’s immune system becomes hyperactive it may also become reactive to food items and a host of other compounds that would not normally create a problem. When the root cause of the symptoms is not treated correctly, the condition becomes chronic. What were once seasonal allergies may become year-round problems.
We often treat our pets the way we treat ourselves when it comes to allergies. Prescription and over-the-counter medications are widely available. We get some relief, but they do nothing to help overall health and come with a host of side effects. There are many safer, holistic alternatives that can be used to treat the outward symptoms of allergies – i.e. ear and skin infections and irritations, while balancing and strengthening the body to decrease or even rid your pet of allergies altogether. Yes, it IS possible!
