Dogs and cats can suffer allergic conditions much like we humans do. As fall approaches, pet owners need to be alerted to allergy symptoms and methods to control and treat pet allergies. Humans typically express allergic conditions through their lungs, called their primary ‘shock organ.’ The shock organs in pets are, first and foremost, associated with symptoms involving their skin and external organs like their eyes and ears, as well.
For every hair type, there’s a hitch. But there are products readily available to target your ‘tress-ful’ problem—be it hair that’s damaged, dull or dry.

When Nicki Myers’ son, Reece, was 18 months old, he itched so much he bled from scratching. Reece suffers from eczema, a non-contagious, inflammatory skin condition that may be caused by an array of triggers. “He had a moderate to severe rash on his lower legs and arms that became so inflamed and irritated he would scratch in his sleep,” says Myers. “He’d wake up with open wounds, and it was quite hard to manage.” The Ladue mom recalls slathering her child’s legs with various prescription and over-the-counter creams and ointments, and then wrapping them with gauze and compression bandages to prevent Reece from continuing to scratch.
