If you’re the owner of a pooch who suffers one of the many types of dog skin allergy out there, chances are, you’d do just about anything to make sure that he or she still has a great quality of life. The great news is that just as “human” medicine has advanced, new developments in veterinary science also mean your dog has a better chance than ever at a long, happy, healthy life.

If you love your dog, allergies symptoms will probably make you incredibly worried – itching, scratching, biting, hair loss, stomach trouble and more are all common signs of dog skin allergy, whether they be to food, fleas, or items in their environment. Here are a few of the treatments available for dog skin allergy today:

Avoidance
If your pet is allergic to a specific allergen, for instance house dust, or pollen, or maybe a particular type of food, the simple choice is to keep them away from the dog skin allergy triggers – keep them out of the room when you vacuum, keep grass short, or avoid treats or foods that contain the ingredients they are allergic to.

Fatty Acids and Biotin
Interestingly enough, recent research has shown that feeding more Omega 3 and 6 fatty acid rich foods can help reduce the symptoms of dog skin allergy, by reducing the histamine response to allergens. On the other hand, Biotin, a B vitamin, helps reduce the itchy skin associated with dog skin allergy, so adding a supplement containing this, like brewer’s yeast, to your dogs’ diet, should make for an improved coat and skin.

Anti Histamines
Better known in the treatment of human than dog skin allergy, anti histamines none the less have had some good effect on affected dogs. Make sure you find out from your vet which work best, and note that a mild sedative effect is a common side effect of this kind of medication.
Immunotherapy

Basically, in dog skin allergy, as in human allergies, a milder form of the specific allergen is used to build up the tolerance of the dog to that particular allergen. It may take some time for this to be effective, and it can be expensive, so it’s usually only resorted to when all else fails in dog skin allergy treatment!

Steroids
When you think steroids, dog skin allergy treatment is probably the furthest thing from your mind, however, they can be some of the best, fastest acting and most effective treatments for your dog skin allergy problems. Of course, prolonged use is not advisable, unless under the strict supervision of a vet, but they will provide almost immediate relief from dog skin allergy symptoms like extreme itching!

These are by no means the only options as far as treating your pet’s dog skin allergy. There are herbal, homeopathic and many other options you could explore, and topical treatments, shampoos, creams and ointments can all offer welcome respite to your four legged friend from his irritating and painful dog skin allergy symptoms. So if your pooch is looking under the weather, find out if it’s an allergy – and if so, try one of these solutions!

Save Your Dog from the Danger of Allergies

Just like us, dogs can experience allergic reactions and if you catch your dog scratching obsessively, he may be allergic to something. Fleas can oftentimes cause allergic reactions to dogs especially in the spring. If your vet suspects your dog has a food allergy he will start him on a diet commonly known as an “elimination test diet”.

Guide to Allergy Dog Food

When a dog has skin problems, we rarely suspect these as food allergies or sensitivities. As most dogs keep eating the same type of dog food for years, the food usually escapes our radar as the problem. But dogs, like humans, can develop sensitivity to any food or additive at any time. Recent estimates indicate that 10 to 15 percent of all allergic skin diseases in dogs are caused by food allergy. In such cases, they should be given allergy dog food, i.e., food that does not cause allergic reactions.
