Albany-  A thick coat of yellow pollen over most of southwest Georgia is likely setting off your allergies, but it can also affect your pets.

Bush Animal Clinic's Veterinarians says in the last two weeks they've seen more cases of pets coming in with skin irritations. The pollen can set off allergies in cats and dogs with itching, biting, or hair loss.

"There are medications if owners will see their veterinarian, there are drugs that can be prescribed through their vet for such allergies same as in people just a little different," said Dr. Steve Whatley.

Your pet can also set off your allergies, by bringing pollen inside the house on their coats.
