Seasonal allergies in dogs are not uncommon.
If you’ve noticed your Shih Tzu itching a lot when the seasons change, this could be a sign that he has sensitivity to airborne allergens known as atopy.
Yup, just like people, your sweet little angel can suffer from allergies too.
Seasonal allergies in dogs usually manifests with very itchy skin around their eyes, mouth, armpits, stomach, inner thighs, feet and bum area.
You may also find that he is getting ear infections more often too.
In other words, they will be quite uncomfortable in their own skin.

What I like about this supplement is that it was created by a veterinarian and it contains natural ingredients which help support their immune system, and not loaded with chemicals.
Also it's a soft, chewable pill, so it's easy for them to eat.
Since my Shih Tzu are small they only need to take half a pill once daily, and these supplements are easy to break into pieces with only
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 rather earthy tasting for lack of a better description.
But I am not the one eating it, my dogs are and they seem to like it. I don't have to hide it in other food to get them to take it.
Also it isn't instant relief, you'll have to give them the supplement for a few days before seeing results.
But overall, I really didn't find anything not to like about this supplement.
I've seen considerable improvement in my dogs in the short time they've been taking it. Especially Rufus who suffers from severe seasonal allergies.
Their hot spots are basically gone, so no more hot, red bumpy skin and the itching has ceased quite a bit.
Also, since they are not scratching themselves all night long, I can get a good nights sleep too. My only regret is that I didn't find this allergy supplement sooner.
If your has seasonal allergies, it's available at Amazon
