What is Dog Allergy Medicine?

Dog allergy medicine, also known as antihistamines, are over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medications used to alleviate symptoms caused by dog allergies. These symptoms include but are not limited to sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and skin rashes.

Types of Dog Allergy Medicine

There are several types of dog allergy medicine available. These include OTC antihistamines, prescription antihistamines, and allergy shots or immunotherapy. The type of medicine necessary will depend on the severity of the symptoms and the individual's response to treatment. For more information on the types of dog allergy medicine, visit Wyndly's guide on dog allergies.

How Does Dog Allergy Medicine Work?

Dog allergy medicine works by blocking the release of histamines, chemicals your body produces during an allergic reaction. Antihistamines can help alleviate symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, and hives. It's important to note, some antihistamines may cause drowsiness.

Long-Term Dog Allergy Solutions

For those seeking a long-term solution, allergy shots or sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) can be an effective way to manage dog allergies. These methods help the body build up a tolerance to the allergen, reducing the severity of reactions over time. The process can take several months to a few years to complete, but the results can be long-lasting, providing relief for many years after treatment.
