Allergies in December???


I was watching a news program today. A doctor warned people that if you have allergies but don't usually need meds for them in the Winter, you may want to reconsider.

It seems that since Kansas and some other places have had some unusually warm temperatures lately, that the pollens, etc have "come back to live" causing people and pets to suffer.

Right now, pet owners are concerned about their pets having "hot spots" on their skin. The hot spots are an allergic reaction. They cause the pets to be uncomfortable because the spots actually feel just like other skin burns. If your pet is experiencing these issues, please take them to your local veterinarian as they do require treatment.

Currently, Western Kansas is experiencing snow and ice. Later in the week, temperatures are supposed to heat up again.
