Allergies to grasses, pollens and wandering jew are becoming more common in pets, especially dogs. These allergies can be from pollens via inhalation through the respiratory tract or as a contact allergy when coming into contact with grasses and wandering jew. It manifests as raw pink, itchy skin, rashes and raised spots like pimples, blisters on the nose, sneezing and runny eyes. With a contact allergy, it is very common for the animal to be irritated in the undercarriage – tummy, armpits, groin, paws, and around the ears and mouth.
There will be lots of licking, scratching and biting of these areas. Unfortunately, the trauma this activity creates can lead to secondary skin infections. For many pets, the only answer has been a vet visit and their pet put on steroids to stop the inflammation.
These contact allergies are called atopic dermatitis. The animal will start with a reaction to grass or wandering jew in the spring or summer, but with the response from the body, it can develop into an all-year-round issue, so you can have an animal that is affected all year round. Our Spring remedy is designed to assist your animal with this allergy by supporting its normal immune response to the reaction.

How to use
Spring comes in a liquid form; this is the easiest way to administer it to animals. It can be put straight into the mouth of the animal, making sure not to contaminate the dripper. You can do this by adding the drops to a teaspoon, lifting the lip, and place in the mouth. But we realise this is not always an option. So you can add the drops to their food, which is just as effective.
Our herbal remedies are made with fluid extracts, which are concentrated herbal solutions that use high alcohol content to pull the chemical constituents out of the herb. Fluid extracts are the most potent herbal preparations you can get. Therefore, you don't have to use much, so you give fewer drops to most pets. However, because of the herbal content, they don't have a pleasant taste, so adding them to food is best. If you are worried about the alcohol content, you can put the remedy in warm to hot water to start with, which will burn off the alcohol content.
Because this remedy has a herbal content, how much you give will depend on the animal's size.

After the 5 days, what happens next?
The recommended dose is 3 times daily for 5 days. So what happens next? Usually, 1 of 3 things will happen, we have listed them below with instructions on what to do next.
- After 5 days, the itching will stop, so you can stop the remedy and reuse it when it flares up again.
- After 5 days the itching has reduced but not gone completely. Keep using the remedy till the itching has stopped, then you can wean them off it. For example, if you have been using 3 times daily, do 2 times daily for 4 days, then once daily for 4 days, then every second day etc. You can stop the remedy at any time.
- If there has been no relief from the remedy at all, then it is not the grasses and pollens that your pet is allergic to, so you need to look at other causes. We can help you with that.
