Pollen alert!

The pollen season is well underway, with pine pollen already drifting over the countryside!

All those pets with allergic skin and/or respiratory disease may be feeling the itch, so keep a close eye on them and be ready to get treatment going before their symptoms really flare.

These types of allergies can present as asthma, coughing, sneezing, reverse sneezing (which occurs when something irritates the soft palate or throat and triggers a type of spasm), watery eyes (hayfever-like symptoms) or itchy skin or ears.

If you need treatment for your pet, call your clinic to arrange a vet consult.
