Is that your happy face, Thimble? Hmmm. Well, anyway, we are still in February, right? It fees like Spring, and we are loving it!
Of course, with Spring comes those seasonal allergies. There's pollen out and about, maybe a sneeze here or there. But that's okay, because who doesn't love Spring? Besides, I can always count on Thimble to grab me a tissue when my allergies get the better of me.
Thank you, Thimble! Now excuse me while I blow my nose.
Now, Thimble wanted our doodle for today to be one showing off her lovely Spring fashion.
We are entering our gratitude for lovely weather into Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
We are, of course, also so very thankful for all of you! We hope all of you furiends of ours out there are having as lovely weather as we are!
Our Tip of the Day:Today's tip is a repeat one, but it seems fitting to give a little reminder about pets and allergies. Just like us, our furbabies can indeed have seasonal allergies. They can be allergic to pollen, dust, mold, and any number of things nature and the environment has to offer. For many cats and dogs, Spring is a tough time, due to budding trees and blooming plants, growing grass, insects, and so forth. Allergies in our furbabies can manifest as itchy skin, rashes, sneezing, coughing, ocular or nasal discharge, or even more severe reactions, including difficulty breathing and asthma attacks. If your furbaby has known allergies, or starts to display signs of allergies, it is certainly wise to discuss this with their veterinarian. Of course, simple fixes might include keeping windows closed, and keeping floors swept and cleaned of grass, pollen, and other allergens. If simple fixes are not enough, though, then a veterinarian can suggest medications or other treatments best suited to help your furbaby cope with allergies.
