Seasonal allergies in dogs are not uncommon. Yup, just like people, your sweet little angel can suffer from allergies too.
If you’ve noticed your Shih Tzu itching a lot when the seasons change, this could be a sign that he has a sensitivity to airborne allergens known as atopy.
Seasonal allergies in dogs usually manifest with very itchy skin around their eyes, mouth, armpits, stomach, inner thighs, feet, and rear end area.
You may also find that he is getting ear infections more often too. In other words, they will be pretty uncomfortable in their own skin.
Vet’s Best Seasonal Allergy Support Supplement for dogs can give relief during those peak allergy season flare-ups.
Vet’s Best Seasonal Allergy supplement is a chewable tablet that uses key natural ingredients supporting normal histamine levels and skin health for your dog.
These key ingredients are nettle leaf extract, perilla leaf extract, quercetin, and citrus.
Other ingredients include a proprietary fish oil blend containing Omega fatty acids, Brewers Yeast, Chlorella, Spirulina, Bee Pollen, Soy Lecithin, Rosemary Extract, and Dunaliella Salina (Sea Algae Extract)
Inactive Ingredients: Cellulose, Lactose, Natural Flavor, Stearic Acid, and Silicon Dioxide.
I like this supplement because a veterinarian created it, and these supplements contain natural ingredients that help support my dogs’ immune system and are not loaded with chemicals.
Also this allergy supplement is a soft, chewable pill, so it's easy for my fur babies to eat.
Since my Shih Tzu are small, they only need to take half a pill once daily.
And as these supplements are easy to break into pieces with only my fingers, I don't have to rely on a knife or scissors to split it in half, making these supplements very portable.

Okay, first, let me say I don't usually go around eating my dog's food and stuff, but it happened, and all I can say is yuck.
It's somewhat "earthy" tasting, for lack of a better description.
But thankfully, I am not the one eating it, my dogs are, and they seem to like it. This means I don't have to hide it in their food or force them to take their "medicine."
These supplements are not a miracle in a bottle. In other words, your dog will not have immediate results. It will take a little time, say a few days, before seeing any results.
With that said, if you know when your dog will likely have a seasonal allergy flare-up, it may be a good idea to begin adding these supplements to their daily diet before their allergies act up.
Overall, I found Vet's Best supplements to be an excellent allergy remedy.
I've seen considerable improvement in my dogs in the short time they've been taking it—especially Rufus, who suffers from awful seasonal allergies.
Their hot spots are gone, so no more red bumpy skin and their itching have eased quite a lot.
Also, a bigger benefit is since they are not scratching themselves all night long, I can get a good night's sleep too.
My only regret is that I didn't find this allergy supplement sooner.
