What You Need To Know About Dog Allergies
Dogs are susceptible to allergens just as humans are and this infographic on dog allergies can help you learn more about the causes, symptoms and possible treatments to save your furry little friend.
When the immune system of a dog finds certain substances in the body as a threat, they try to remove them by triggering a defensive mechanism most commonly known as an allergic reaction. These substances can be pollen, dust or mold. Certain kinds of food are also known to cause allergic reactions in dogs.
Not only food allergies are tricky they can be hard to narrow down. Many dog owners are still finding it a challenge to properly determine what their dog might be allergic to. This is because your dog can be allergic to more than one type of food. Common food groups include grains, dairy products, and certain kinds of food.
Whenever there is an allergic reaction, you will see certain symptoms in your dogs such as itchy skin, red ears, runny nose and eyes and swollen paws. More extreme reactions include vomiting and violent diarrhea.
A dog can develop allergies at any point in their lives, even to certain foods they were previously okay with. Choose foods which are hypoallergic or ones which does not trigger a reaction for your dog and stick to it. There might be some limitations, but with careful control, your pup will be safe and lead a happy life.
