Anyone who believes that pollen allergies only occur very rarely in dogs, he is wrong. There are many dogs that suffer from the heavy pollen count in spring. Hay fever is the most common allergy in dogs.
But how do you recognize pollen allergies in dogs?
It is as described above It is not always easy to recognize a pollen allergy in a dog. Because there are no uniform symptoms that indicate that it is a pollen allergy. Some pets with hay fever have the same symptoms as humans. They sniffle, sneeze and sniffle. However, these symptoms are often assigned to normal cold.
If your dog constantly itches, scratches and licks itself from head to toe (mostly in the spring), this could indicate a pollen allergy. Your dog will itch, especially in the armpits and belly. In addition, skin rashes, wheals and pustules in the abdominal area can be a sign of an allergy.

Breathing in pollen can lead to an allergic reaction in your dog, which in the worst case can lead to shortness of breath. The first breathing problems can already be recognized by the fact that your dog's condition decreases more and more when going for walks and playing. If your dog starts to wrestle after air and the breathing noises can be heard clearly, then you should contact a veterinarian immediately.
