3 Common California Allergens for Pets: Info from a Veterinarian in Daly City

3-Common-California-Allergens-for-Pets-Info-from-a-Veterinarian-in-Daly-City

It’s that time of year again… Time for the coughing, sneezing, and runny eyes of allergy season. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you know just how miserable they can be. What you might not know, though, is that your furry family member could be suffering from seasonal allergies, too. Here in California, pets’ allergy symptoms tend to be worst in April, May, and early fall when certain plants are in blossom. 

At Animal Farm Pet Hospital, we often treat pets who are suffering from seasonal allergies. If you think your pet may have allergies, keep reading to learn about some of the most common causes of allergic reactions in California pets from a veterinarian in Daly City. 

Walnut Trees

Our state is well-known for its nut trees, including the California Black Walnut. Unfortunately, when this tree flowers from April through June, it produces a lot of pollen. Since the pollen of this tree is lighter and smaller than that of many other trees, it sticks to pets’ faces and can trigger unpleasant reactions. 

Mulberry Shrubs

They may be beautiful, but Mulberry shrubs are known for being especially problematic for allergy sufferers. These shrubs grow throughout California and are often found in large patches consisting of dozens - or even hundreds - of bushes. 

Sweet Vernal Grass

For allergy sufferers, sweet vernal is one of the most problematic types of grass. Native to the western United States, it is especially common along the coast. It grows to a great height, and pets often wander through it unknowingly. 

When to See a Veterinarian in Daly City for Your Pet’s Allergies

Allergies are just as annoying and miserable to your pet as they are to you. If your pet is showing signs of seasonal allergies, it’s best to have them evaluated as soon as possible.
