    This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that a dog sneezing could indicate that it has allergies. My dog has been sneezing pretty frequently recently, and I wasn’t sure why it was happening. I’ll definitely take her in to visit the vet to see if it’s allergies and what we can do to fix it. Thanks for the great post!
