Dog Allergies

if your pooch has asthma-like symptoms, and its bedding has cedar chips, try switching to

something else and see if it helps. cedar & other conifers secrete plicatic acid, a natural

insecticide which protects the tree, but can irritate some dogs (and humans). i learned

that from a great dog book by Ted Kerasote called “Merle’s Door.”
