Pollens from grasses, weeds like dandelions and nettles, and trees are all possible culprits for making cats and dogs itchy.
For some unfortunate animals, when their skin comes into contact with these pollens, it goes into overdrive. Seeing these particles as a foreign invader and working really hard to destroy them. All the body’s natural defences make the skin inflamed and irritated – and itchy!
For others, this will just be part of an all year around itch, which just gets worse at some points in the year (a flare-up). Some may never have had itchy skin before, and the sheer amount of pollen this year is enough to make them itchy.
