Your furry friend’s get allergies just like we do and one of those allergies is a pollen allergy.
What is a pollen allergy? Pollen is a granular, powdery substance in grass. Some of the signs your dog may have a pollen allergy is scratching, licking excessively, rash, red irritation skin, dry patches, and watering of the eyes and nose. If your dog has a severe reaction, it may produce inflammation of the airways and cause restriction resulting in your dog struggling to breathe.
When your dog gets a grass allergy it is caused by the pollen floating through the air, even though we cannot see it. These microscopic spores are absorbed into your dog’s skin and nasal passages which can lead to an allergic reaction.
In addition, your dog’s fur can pick up pollen as well, not just from grass but other surfaces surrounding the grass that may have pollen on them. This includes the ground outside.
If your dog is partly kept inside, they will bring in the pollen spores inside which will then be on the couch, bedding etc.
