What Causes Grass Allergies in My Dog? What Should I Do?

What are the causes of grass allergies

Grass produces microscopic spores of pollen, which are released into the air and carried by the wind for long distances.

These spores are then absorbed by a dog’s skin and mucous membranes (through their nasal passages, eyes, or mouth) and can cause an allergic reaction because your dog’s immune system has had an abnormal response to proteins in the grass pollen. 

As noted previously, your dog doesn’t need to be in physical contact with grass to suffer a reaction. Your dog’s fur can pick up pollen from surfaces that may have it on them, or you may be bringing it into the house on clothes, shoes or bags. If your dog’s a fan of rolling around in the grass, this can also obviously bring them into contact with the grass and pollen.

Areas that have a higher grass pollen count may mean that a dog is more likely to develop a sensitivity or allergy to grass.
