A Message From our Friends at Bayer…

Dogs get allergies, too

Did you know that dogs, just like humans, can have allergies, too? Sneezing, scratching and itchy, runny eyes are just a few of the signs that a dog may be suffering from seasonal allergies. Although allergies can be triggered through inhalation, dogs may also absorb allergens through their skin or their paws. Although there’s no way to cure allergies, there are various ways you can help manage them. Help Manage Them.
