Hughes Springs, TX (KETK) - — The best way to see if your pets are having an allergic reaction is by their behavior.
When dogs and cats begin scratching fiercly and licking their feet more often than usual, that is most likely an allergic sign.
You may also start to notice patches of hair missing where the animal has been trying to find some relief from the itching.
And this year, fleas are suppose to make a return from the drought last year.
Some animals are allergic to fleas, and some fleas carry pollen with them.
The best way to combat this is to talk to your vet, and use specific medications that will allieviate allergic problems.
But just because your pet is sneezing, doesn't mean he is sick.
