Natural Remedies for Dog Allergies

Posted by Ruby Tequin on

Allergies are a common and widespread medical condition among dogs. Finding the root cause of allergies is a tedious work: you can spend months working with your vet to try to determine what's causing your dog's sensitivity.

While pharmaceuticals company have come up with medications to treat allergies, many pet owners are opting for natural alternatives when treating dog allergies. Some of these so-called natural remedies are already in your household:

Sprouted Seeds

The gut is a major part of your dog's immune system. So maintaining the gut is one way to prevent allergies. Do this by feeding your pooch with sprouted seeds which contain enzymes and vitamins that support the gut.

Nettles

Quercetin is naturally present in nettles. It prevents the immune system from releasing histamines--a chemical that causes allergic reactions. It is also found in apples, green tea, and broccoli. 

Licorice

This root has been used in foods and as a medicine for thousands of years. It relieves inflammation in the digestive tract and eliminates inflammatory in the respiratory tract.

Aloe leaf

Aloe plant is famous for its health and beauty benefits. It is used to relieve sun burns and itchy skin for both humans and animals. Aloe vera produces a gel that can alleviate itchiness and inflammation.
