Canine Allergies

3 Major culprits of allergy causes in dogs are as follows:

  1.  Fleas:  When you notice a rash on your dog’s belly, groin or chest, the first thing to check is:  are there fleas?  Fleas cause an allergic reaction on your dogs skin after they are bitten.  The flea bites your pet to feed and lay eggs.
  2. Environment:  Did you know that your canine can be allergic to dust mites, flowers, shrubs and grass just like we can.
  3. Food:  Because so many dog foods are made with bi-products such as corn and wheat, it is easy for your pet to develop an allergy over time.  To compound matters, many meat animals are fed corn and wheat in their feeds which comes back to your pet’s diet when these meat animals are used in the production of dog food.  Most of us do not immediately have an allergy to a food, but develop it after repeated exposure.
