Skin /Allergy Awareness 

For your furry friend during Skin and Allergy Awareness Month, you can look for hypoallergenic foods specially made for pets. These foods are formulated to reduce the chances of triggering allergic reactions in pets with sensitive tummies or skin.

If your pet has skin issues or allergies, using a medicated shampoo designed for pets can be really beneficial. It helps to soothe their skin and relieve any itching or irritation they might be experiencing.
