What are Canine Allergies?
Every allergy that troubles humans has its counterpart in dogs. This includes seasonal allergies.
Canine allergies may be caused by a number of factors including pollens, weeds, grasses and other plants. When a dog has an allergy, his or her body develops and abnormal reaction to these substances. Different dogs may react very differently, even if they’re allergic to the same thing.
It's often tricky to determine exactly what a dog is allergic to but it's important to make the effort. Much discomfort can often be avoided simply by ensuring your dog isn't exposed to the allergen.
What is Nettle-Eyebright Gold?
Nettle-Eyebright Gold is a combination of herbal ingredients designed by our holistic veterinarian for canine allergies (allergic rhinitis or hay fever). The herbs, Nettle and Eyebright are two of the main ingredients and have been used extensively for natural support of seasonal allergies. Other herbs in this formula help to support the immune system and the specific reactions experienced by dogs when airborne antigens affect them.
Nettle-Eyebright Gold is specifically used for symptoms listed below (sneezing, watery eyes, itchy nose, etc.). For allergies that present on the skin, Pet Wellbeing has developed a formula called Itch Support Gold for Dogs to address itchy, inflamed skin.
What is Nettle-Eyebright Gold used for?
Allergic rhinitis (or hay fever), a condition commonly experienced by humans, can be experienced by dogs in much the same way. Tissues in the nasal passages become inflamed and itchy. You may notice your dog rubbing his or her nose to gain relief. Watery, red eyes, sneezing and excess nasal mucous are all common signs of allergic rhinitis. Springtime symptoms are usually caused by tree pollens, while weeds and other plants like grasses, can be the culprits as the weather gets warmer in summer and fall months.
Recommended for intermittent use, as needed. May help with occasional discomfort associated with seasonal allergies.
Other substances can also elicit the same types of symptoms. Fungal spores and molds may be present indoors, particularly in damp areas like basements or garages. Dust or dust mites are common triggers and are found in carpets, bedding, window coverings, mattresses and furniture covered with fabric. Sensitivities are not experienced the same way by everyone or every pet but, rather, are unique to each individual's immune system. It may be helpful to avoid having your pet in areas (outdoor or indoor) that seem to make the symptoms worse. An air purifier indoors can also be beneficial.
When pollens or other microscopic particles are inhaled by dogs with overly sensitive immune systems, a chain reaction occurs. A sensitized immune system will produce antibodies to combat the antigens. The antibodies cause other chemicals to be produced in the body, called mediators. One common mediator is histamine. It is the mediators that have an affect on the tissues, particularly on the nose, eyes and respiratory tract.
Nettle-Eyebright Gold targets this reaction in four ways:
- By providing natural anti-histamines
- By supporting the overall health of the immune system
- By providing ingredients that support the comfort of nasal passages, decrease excess mucous production and support the respiratory tract
- By helping with inflammation that can cause discomfort
