    Default Suffering from grass allergies???

    3 weeks in and things just keep getting better. We started using hypoallergenic alcohol free baby wipes in Mia's belly, paws, and bottom after every trip outside and WOW what a difference. Rashes are almost gone and itching is minimal. Best thing (and cheapest) out there for our girl....

    I've been keeping my grass -- the only grass I have is in the dog's yard --- long and only cutting it when it gets ridiculously long. (Which hopefully, is today) I've noticed that Bea and Bo --- especially Bo -- both react allergically (little hives) to freshly CUT grass. They can play in the yard all day and no bumps in the long grass. Since we go for a walk everyday -- and when there's some freshly manicured grass to poop/play in --- I get out the benedryl when I get home.

    Wiping after each and every trip outside absolutely helps keep the itchiness down with both my bulldog and weimaraner...I just use a damp microfiber cloth (have a great big stack and launder them 1x a week)...fresh cut grass makes me sneeze so I definately think it's worse then just grass... Allergies are a pain in the you know what but these little things do make a difference! Good job for figuring out what helps your baby!

    Yes, I too notice Bruin will start licking his paws more when the grass is cut. His paws get wiped every time he comes in with a baby wipe and when he licks his paws I use yellow listerine, just a little swipe. I should give him a benadryl before my bf cuts the grass and see if that helps more.

    Oliver has seasonal grass allergies, too. Our vet has us giving him 1 Claritin prior to any time at the park, where his allergies seem to flair. (he is oddly okay with our grass in our backyard)
