Quercetin For Dogs
Quercetin: A Natural Antihistamine For Dogs
Are you looking for a natural anti-histamine for dog allergies? Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that acts as an antihistamine for dogs and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Many veterinarians suggest Benadryl or Apoquel for allergies in dogs. Like any medication, they do provide relief from symptoms, but they can come with negative side effects. Antihistamines, like diphenhydramine, can cause drowsiness or increased heart rate in some dogs, while immunosuppressants can reduce the immune system's ability to react to bacteria, fungi and viruses. Steroid medications, like prednisone, reduce swelling, but they do so by suppressing the body's natural immune response. Short-term use will stop the itching and scratching but may make your dog more susceptible to illnesses or infections not related to allergies. Studies report an unusually high number of dogs with side effects such as weight gain, ear infections and uneasiness.
Our quercetin supplement, AllerEaze, is recommended by veterinarians nationwide as a safe and effective dog allergy treatment. AllerEaze is an herbal blend of quercetin and nettle leaf, two natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Quercetin relieves excessive scratching and itching, redness in paws and other symptoms related to seasonal allergies, helps reduce histamine response with mast cell tumors and has been shown to have anti-cancer effects. It is made in the USA with non-GMO ingredients.
What Can I Give My Dog For Allergies?
Presciption allergy medications for dogs may provide temporary relief of symptoms, but are not addressing the root cause of the allergies. Dogs can suffer from food and environmental allergies that can cause them to get itchy skin, redness and hives. If you find your dog scratching but no fleas, you might be dealing with food or environmental allergies.
Conventional veterinary treatment for allergies consists of steroids, antibiotics and antihistamines. Sometimes a cone is the only thing that will stop your pet from licking and chewing on red, irritated skin. Most dogs will finish a course of medication and then, within a short period of time, the symptoms return. Dogs with allergies get into a cycle of prescription medications and overuse can weaken their immune system and overall health. Natural remedies for dog allergies, such as quercetin for dogs, along with diet changes can offer safe, long-lasting results.
What Are The Benefits of Quercetin For Dogs?
- Quercetin for Dog Allergies
Dog allergy symptoms may include excessive scratching, licking, chewing, rashes, hot spots, hair loss and even digestive upset. Many holistic veterinarians refer to quercetin as nature’s own Benadryl. It is a safe, natural alternative to Apoquel. Quercetin suppresses the histamine reaction and blocks inflammatory enzymes to reduce swelling and itching. Quercetin can help keep your dog comfortable during allergy season.
Quercetin has been referred to as a natural “Benadryl.” During an allergic reaction, the body releases histamine. Histamine is an organic compound responsible for the inflammatory and itch response of the immune system. Scientific research* shows that quercetin turns off the histamine response that causes the inflammation. AllerEaze is
the best quercetin for dogs because it is safe, affordable, easy to use and third-party tested for purity.

- Dogs With Mast Cell Tumors (MCTs)
Canine mast cell tumors are the most common type of skin cancer found in dogs. They can be found on the limbs, in between toes and in the spleen, liver and bone marrow. Both normal and cancerous mast cells contain chemicals that can be released into surrounding tissues. When these chemicals (particularly histamine) are released into the normal surrounding body tissues, side effects can include digestive problems (for example: bleeding ulcers), skin rashes, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
The quercetin in AllerEaze helps to control the histamine response from mast cell tumors and reduce inflammation, which reduces recurrences. According to scientific research, quercetin and flavonoids have been shown to limit cancer cell growth in tumors. Quercetin helps to reduce cancer-feeding inflammation and decreases the blood flow to cancer cells. Mast cell tumors vary greatly in their size, shape, appearance and texture. The only way to definitely identify them is with a biopsy and pathology report, which help to diagnose them based on location, grade and size. If your dog is diagnosed with a mast cell tumor, a holistic approach with diet changes and supplements can be used along with conventional treatments provided by your veterinarian to support your dog's immune system and prevent recurrence. Happy Paws Hemp Extract, Curcumin Complex for Pets and OncoPet Cancer Vitamin have also been very helpful for dogs with mast cell tumors.
Why Use Quercetin For Dog Allergies?
Quercetin is a natural anti-histamine for dogs that can provide much needed relief from allergy symptoms. Allergies are cumulative, meaning they build up with increased exposure. Heat, moisture and higher pollen counts can increase symptoms. This explains why dogs have more allergy symptoms in the spring and summer months. In dogs, the most common sign of allergies is allergic dermatitis. Allergic dermatitis is skin inflammation resulting from itching and irritation. The scratching and chewing can lead to hair loss, red smelly paws and hot spots. Hot spots are inflamed, infected skin lesions that are the result of constant licking, biting and scratching. These areas are very uncomfortable for your dog and can lead to open sores with bleeding and hair loss.
Types of Allergies in Dogs
What is an allergy? An allergy is when your pet's immune system overreacts to a trigger such as pollen. When pets have allergies, their immune system makes substances called antibodies that identify a particular allergen (e.g. dust) as harmful and responds to it. This can cause your pet's skin to become inflamed, itchy and red. The best way to protect your dog from an allergic response is to make sure your pet avoids the allergen, but it can be difficult to identify the allergen.
- Seasonal Environmental Allergies - Some of the most common causes of seasonal environmental allergies in dogs include dust, dust mites, mold, pollen and grass. These irritants are more prolific during certain times of the year, such as spring and summer.
- Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) - Flea allergy dermatitis occurs when a dog's immune system is hypersensitive to the antigen or protein in the flea saliva. One flea bite can cause intense itching that can last for days.
- Food Allergies - Dogs can be allergic to certain foods such as beef, poultry and grains. Feeding a low carbohydrate novel protein diet is helpful for most dogs with allergies. Please include your dog's diet and treats on the order form at checkout and Ask Ariel will provide diet tips for your dog on the packing slip that comes with your order.
- Other Environmental Allergies - Dogs can also have allergic reactions to many household chemicals, mold and mildew. Scented candles, laundry detergent and dander from other pets can be allergens too. Pets are much more sensitive to airborne particulates, and the exposure can cause breathing problems.
Is Quercetin Safe for Dogs?
Quercetin is scientifically proven to reduce your dog's histamine response, providing much-needed relief from allergies and inflammation. Quercetin belongs to a class of water-soluble plant pigments called flavonoids. Flavonoids are found in many richly-pigmented fruits and vegetables, like cranberries, blueberries, kale, spinach and sweet potatoes.
Many holistic veterinarians recommend quercetin for dogs with allergies and deem it to be a safe supplement. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a quercetin supplement for your dog:

Can dogs and cats have environmental and grass allergies?
Cats and dogs are not allergic to grass but to the grass pollens. These pollens can travel through the air for miles, so cats and dogs can show allergy symptoms even if you don’t have grass in your yard. The most common symptom of environmental allergies in pets is itching. They may also sneeze and have irritation or draining at the eyes. AllerEaze provides natural anti-inflammatory and antihistamine relief for your pet.

Most of your dog’s immune system is located within the digestive tract, and skin problems can also result from food allergies. Many pets with allergies also have a yeast overgrowth, which can cause doggie odor, constant licking at the paws and genital area, scooting and ear infections. K9 Yeast Defense is excellent at controlling yeast overgrowth and works well with AllerEaze.
Is quercetin a natural anti-histamine for dogs and cats?
Quercetin is scientifically proven to have anti-allergic and antihistamine properties. Histamine is released as your pet’s immune system responds to a substance (pollen or other allergen) coming in contact with the mucous membranes (nose, mouth, intestines, etc). Antihistamines block the allergic reaction. Quercetin has been referred to as a natural Benadryl.
