July is our allergy awareness month.  If you have an itchy dog and are struggling to help give your dog some relief from scratching through the summer months book an appointment with one of our nurses and they will talk through some simple things that you can do to make things a little easier and talk through the tests that can be done to try and identify the triggers.  One of the simple things you can do to help dogs with pollen or grass allergy is to sponge the face, feet and tummy after each walk – it is amazing how much relief some dogs can get from such a simple routine.
