Hi im new to the forum! I have had my little Chi for a little over a year now! I always keep him up to date on his shots as well as take him to the vet for anything I think is affecting his health. I have a question for some of you that have had Chis for a while though. We lived in El Paso TX for most of his year untill about 6 months ago in which neither of us had problems with allergies because it was all desert. Well my allergies have been HORRIBLE this spring here in Boise and poor little Troy has been rubbing his eyes with his paw and he seems to be sort of coughing/ sneezing. Can he develop allergies as well? This never started untill a few days ago when our cottonwood trees came into bloom. He has no gunk in his eyes or anything his ears have been pretty smelly but I got some organic puppy ear drops as well as mite drops thinking it could be a ear cold or such and the smell went away and i have been taking extra care at keeping them clean but it doesnt seem to be helping anything else. i was just wondering if maybe he has allergies or something or if I should immidently take him into the vet? I thought id wait it out for a day and see if he gets better with lots of water but maybe its a cold? Help please!!!
