Providing Allergy Support Via Nutritional Supplements
Allergies can impact your dog’s quality of life and your relationship with them. An allergy is simply the immune system overreacting or experiencing a hypersensitivity to an allergen, which are proteins. Common allergens can include proteins from food, insects, animals or plants.
The route allergens can take to affect your pet include the following:
- Inhaled – pollen, molds, dust and skin dander (including human)
- Skin contact – dust mites, flea saliva, shampoos, chemicals and topical medications
- Food/Ingested – dog food, treats and medications
If your dog is experiencing symptoms of allergies, contact your veterinarian to determine the cause and outline a plan of action to provide relief.
