another allergy tip

Be sure to get your flea medications NOW. With the mild winter, you may need to use it early if you have not used flea products all winter.

Put your dry dog food and dry cookies in the freezer for storage.  Many dogs are allergic to dust mites, which are in dry foods.  Freezing kills those potential allergens, as well as reduces dust, which can also bother sensitive dogs.

Yes it is odd that allergic reactions manifest in dogs more frequently as skin issues and itching than any other symptom.  But it is seriously worth the effort to try these things instead of resorting to medications that can eventually cause deadly side effects.

Switching foods to a fish based food is often very helpful as well.  Good luck and you are welcome to call if you have any questions.
