Cat owners are intimately familiar with hairballs. While not every pet will experience hairballs at the same frequency as others (particularly those with long hair), most cats will have at least one throughout their lives.
Allergies are a deceptively common ailment in household cats; it’s estimated that one in five cats have allergies. Cats can develop allergies to many different things over time. These may include outdoor allergens like mold or pollen, household substances like perfumes and cleaners and even foods like wheat or chicken.
You know spring is in full swing when plants are beginning to bloom. The weather is nice so pets and their owners are spending more time outside, and your poor allergic pet may be starting to go nuts because of seasonal allergies. Just like humans, dogs suffer their allergies predominantly in the spring - the most irritating season of all.
The sight and sound of a dog panting is very familiar to dog owners—all dogs will pant at some point or another, letting their tongue hang out as they catch their breath after a strenuous run or on a hot day. Panting is a normal bodily process that dog owners should expect, but it can sometimes be worrisome, since it may appear that your dog is having trouble catching its breath.
One of the most frustrating parts of winter is dry, flaky skin. But humans aren’t the only ones that can have this problem. Cats, too, can suffer from dry skin when the temperatures drop.
The autumn season brings crisp weather, beautiful leaves and, unfortunately, a slew of allergies that affect people and dogs alike! If your dog is wheezing this fall, it could be a sign that they’re suffering from allergies, just like you.
