Itchy nose? Watery eyes? Rashy skin? Sounds familiar, right? While it may seem surprising, your pet can also experience allergy issues many people experience. The good news is that a dog's allergies are easy to treat using the same allergy remedies used for people. From the most common to some of the more unusual, dogs can typically be treated using natural remedies such as acidophilus, evening primrose oil, omega-3 fats, and coconut oil.
Catching a pet’s allergic response early on is one of the most important steps to fighting allergies. In some cases, you may notice symptoms of allergies in your pet before it develops to a systemic response, which allows you to begin treating immediately and avoid additional vet visits. However, if you pet is red, itchy, and swollen, you should probably head to the vet with the animal to get a more thorough diagnosis. In any event, though, natural cures are helpful supports for safely and effectively alleviating allergy issues in pets. Consider trying acidophilus, evening primrose oil, omega-3 fats, and coconut oil to treat your pet’s allergy symptoms.
Acidophilus is a form of good bacteria that helps balance the body’s immune system. When the natural bacteria is “in check” in the gastrointestinal tract, your pet’s immune system functions more optimally. You can find acidophilus in the form of a dietary supplement and even in yogurt or food forms for your pet.
