BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma (KOTV) – If your pet’s non-stop scratching is waking you up at night, you’re not alone. Veterinarians across eastern Oklahoma are saying this is the worst season for pet allergies in recent memory.
A Broken Arrow veterinarian says allergies are especially bad this year.
“Your Bermuda grass looks wonderful, it’s growing like crazy. All your flowers are doing great. That’s hard on your pets,” said Dr. Kim Huckaby, Bent Arrow Animal Hospital.
At her clinic, Dr. Huckaby says she has seen a 20 percent increase in pet allergy cases from last year.
Allergy concerns make up about a third of her case load.
