How To Treat My Cat Or Dog's Seasonal Allergies Naturally

Seasonal allergy causes in cats and dogs and how to treat them with safe and all-natural products.

Achoo! Yep, allergy season is upon us. Seasonal allergies can cause discomfort in both humans and animals. Dogs tend to be more affected by seasonal allergies than cats but can also show symptoms. Symptoms can include:

  • sneezing
  • wheezing
  • running nose
  • runny eyes 
  • external itching, including the eyes
  • and other symptoms that may resemble hayfever

What causes seasonal Allergies in cats and dogs? 

Allergies are often brought on by our seasonal changes when plants bloom, causing pollen and other inhaled allergens that inflame our respiratory system. Most often, the “weeds” and plants that cause these allergens can sometimes be the plants that help us heal from respiratory allergens. 

How to get rid of Allergies in cats and dogs:

There are a few ways to approach allergens. Many over-the-counter or prescription medications will suppress allergy symptoms, making them disappear quickly but pushing symptoms further into the body. This may cause them to flare or worsen if the body can never repair and heal. 

At The Pet Beastro, we suggest an all-natural approach to giving allergy relief to your pet. We understand that, at times, you may have to rely on pharmaceuticals to get symptoms back in check, but often, these can be used with natural remedies. 

Natural ways to reduce Allergies for cats and dogs:

Here are a few of the safe products we suggest to help your pet with allergies.

Nature’s Sunshine Histablock

This product contains Quercetin, which is a bioflavonoid that is found in plants. It is known for its potent anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties. We often refer to Histablock as a natural replacement for Benadryl. Histablock has herbal ingredients that are safe for your pet instead of the lengthy list of synthetic ingredients you would find in over-the-counter antihistamine products.


Herbsmith AllerQi

Dr. Chris Bessent formulates this Chinese herbal blend to help cool the skin and restore the body’s normal functions to balance. This formula comes in both powder and tablets for cats and dogs. Dr. Bessent is an excellent Traditional Chinese Medicine veterinarian who understands how Yin (female and cooling portion of our body’s energy) melds and transforms with the Yang (male and warming portion of our body’s energy) when she formulates each herbal supplement. 

Answer’s Goat Milk

This fermented milk product can do wonders for dogs who have skin allergies that morph into excessive yeast issues. Fermentation allows all-natural probiotics to help replenish the gut and support the immune system. Fermented goat milk helps to rebalance the pH of the stomach, reduce yeast overgrowth, reduce inflammation, and act as a natural antihistamine. This is beneficial for both cats and dogs. 

This is a quick recap of a few select products that we carry to help relieve allergy symptoms.

    Hello. How much raw goat's milk should I give my cat daily to help her allergies? I have the Answers brand of milk. She also just had two upper back teeth (one on each side) extracted on Friday and I'd like to give it to her for not just the allergies but also to help her inflammation from dental work.
