Yes they can have allergies. Elle and Emma's eyes get bad when the lawn is mowed. Call your vet and see if there is any meds they can give him, even Benedryl helps, but you'll need to call the vet to see what dosage you can give him. Best wishes.

Yes, I think it can but some of the more experienced should be able to answer your question with more details.

Absolutely. IF it's really pollen, sometimes some artificial tears will help keep the eyes lubricated and cleaned out. Our Max will stick his entire head in a bush to smell it, and during certain times of the year, that will increase the eye gunk and also set him up for getting an eye infection, unless I keep them cleaned out.

Another absolutetly. It can be *extremely* dramatic.

The pollen is horrible this year! I've had a sinus headache for weeks and Morgan's eyes are full of goop every morning. Her vet gave me something for pollen allergies several years ago, don't recall what it was. I DID NOT like her bad behavior when she took it.
