“My dog, Queenie, was bitten twice by a rattlesnake last year. She almost did not make it. Through the grace of God and help from my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan, she is still with me and still my one true love. Thank you ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!"

Sneezing Basset Hound

One of the best ways to help an allergy-prone pet is to try to prevent exposure to allergens. Here are some pointers to make your pet’s environment a little healthier:

• If the pollen count is high, keep your pet inside or limit time outside.
• Wipe off your pet’s paws after going outdoors to remove pollen.
• Put plush toys in the freezer occasionally to help kill off dust mites.
• Wash your pet’s bedding regularly with a gentle fragrance-free detergent.
• Dust and vacuum frequently, especially in your pet’s favorite spots.

Be sure to visit your veterinarian to identify the source of your pet’s allergies and get specific treatment advice. Visit our blog for more tips on what to do if your pet has allergies.

“Chip, our 10-year-old Akita developed alopecia, or hair loss.  Through treatments, his hair is slowing growing back.  ASPCA Pet Health Insurance has been great in helping to defer some of the on-going medical costs.”

Allergic to your pet? These Tips May Help!

If you're sneezing and wheezing around your pet, you don't have to give up your furry friend. The ASPCA has some suggestions to help:

• Keep your pet out of your bedroom. That way, you'll be free of allergens for a good chunk of time while you sleep.

• Eliminate household fabrics. Rugs and drapes can collect allergens, so remove them if possible or clean them regularly.

• Dust and vacuum often. Wipe down shelves, and vacuum with a HEPA filter or a disposable electrostatic bag frequently.

Get more tips for dealing with pet allergies at the ASPCA's website.

Pet Photo Friday: I Would Recommend Pet Insurance to Anyone

“Several years ago, my first Siberian Husky was in a motor vehicle accident and suffered extensive injuries. It took several years to clear up that $5,000 debt. Last year I signed up for ASPCA Pet Health Insurance and thankfully have only needed it for one bout of pancreatitis with my current Siberian Husky, Adela. I would recommend pet insurance to anyone.”
