Grass Allergy in dogs
Seasonal Summer and Winter Allergies Dogs like to play in parks, but this experience is not good for some dogs, and it may end up being a big problem for them. Dogs with grass allergies remain uncomfortable and find it difficult to survive in such conditions. If you delay in treating this problem, it will only get worse. If your dog suffers from a grass allergy, don’t worry. You just have to diagnose the problem and treat it. In this article, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatment of grass allergy in dogs.


Grass allergy does not occur when dogs eat grass. Similarly, it has no relation to the grass underfoot. In fact, this problem is caused by the seasonal pollen that grass releases when it matures. However, other pollen-borne allergies can affect dogs, and if you notice any of the symptoms, it is important to have your dog tested.

Pollens are very small in size, almost invisible, and can travel long distances in the air. This is one of the reasons why your dog often suffers from allergies even though you don't have a yard in your home. Pollen affects dogs when they enter the body through the lungs. Sometimes pollen also creates a skin allergy. That is why it is important to bathe your dogs and clean their legs and paws when they come from outside. Grass allergy is usually seasonal and occurs mainly in dogs in early summer and late spring. That is why dogs allergic to grass pollen only show signs in these seasons.

However, these treatments sometimes do not work and have side effects.

Looking at natural dog supplements like CEN Digestive + which helps the immune system health through the promotion of a healthy gut. The microbiome environment can be affected by stress or medications and this has an impact on the immune system.


S. boulardii (Live Probiotic) helps protect against disease-causing pathogens by preventing them from taking up residence inside the gut. Harmful microorganisms like Salmonella bind to the surface of S. boulardii cells, and once this binding takes place, the pathogen can no longer bind to the surface of the intestine.

Seasonal allergies can affect a dog if they suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome (click here to read).

CEN Digestive + and CEN Collagen are excellent products to help repair the intestinal wall and help recover from the syndrome. CEN Oil would be another great addition to the diet for skin/coat health and to help lower the irritation.
