KPIX 5 Morning Weather Anchor Roberta Gonzales answers the questions you never get to ask on-air.
Q: Hey Roberta, my dog has been sneezing! Could my dog possibly have allergies? – Dayna Goldberg, Piedmont
A: YES! Dogs can suffer from allergies just like humans! In fact, my dog Roxy has been sneezing quite a bit too!
Dogs can react to high pollen counts just as humans. They can have the same allergies we have! The only advice I can give is take your pooch to your veterinarian and see if your doggy is indeed reacting to seasonal allergens.
If this is the case, what my vet recommended, was “human allergy” medicine, in which I cut the dose in half for her and placed in her doggy food. Roxy is a lot better today, but please, do not go by my example, rather visit your vet for advice for your pet!
I would love to hear from you! Please send weather questions, observations and photos to me, Gonzales@kpix.cbs.com and I look forward to hearing from you!
