Spontaneous pollen allergy occurs in animals and provides a model of this type of hypersensitivity useful for laboratory investigation.

Clinical manifestations during the pollen season in these dogs include conjunctivitis, dermatitis, rhinitis, and asthma. These symptoms can be reproduced under controlled conditions of exposure to the specific aeroallergen. The immediate type of wheal and erythema reactivity is present and is transferrable to
