Ways to Help Treat Your Pet’s Fall Allergies

At Trilby Animal Hospital in Toledo, Dr. Moore and our team are here for you and your pet. We are highly trained, dedicated, and compassionate when it comes to treating your furry friends. If you think your animal companion has pet allergies, we are happy to examine, diagnose, and provide treatment. Let’s look at a few tips that you can use at home to help with your pet’s allergies.

Walk Your Pet in the Middle of the Day

Early mornings and late evenings are peak times for high pollen levels. It is also better to avoid fields, vacant lots, and overgrown parking lots since these areas are more likely to contain the plants producing the offensive pollen.

Wipe Down

When you return from your walk, wipe your pet down with a wet cloth or fragrance-free grooming wipe. If you have a place to hose your pet off, a quick spray down or bath are even better options. You want to remove the excess pollen and other offensive allergens from your pet. Make sure to get your pet’s face and feet as well, since these are the areas most affected.

Clean Your Home

Take the time to wipe down your home with a disinfectant. Run a dehumidifier or air conditioner if you can. Make sure to wash all of the fabrics in your home, including the curtains, pillows, carpets, blankets, and more. Look all over your home for mold, as it can often cause allergies for you and your pet. Vacuum at least once per week. This picks up any allergens and pollen quickly and efficiently.

Visit the Veterinarian’s Office

If your pet’s symptoms do not improve within a few days, it is time to contact our veterinarian. Dr. Moore will run allergy tests to detect the issue, diagnose the allergy, and then prescribe products or advice for removing the allergy or making your pet more comfortable.
