Hi Jenni, thank you for telling us about your experiences with your dog’s skin allergies. Stetson is doing much better with his allergies. In fact I think part of the problem may have been the grass in our yard. Since the drought restrictions began the lawn has died and at the same time Stetson’s skin seems much less irritated. However, I did change a lot of things at the same time so it could be any one or combination of things. I’m just happy that Stetson feels comfortable in his skin again 🙂

Food allergies account for only about 10% ofallergy problems in dogs, however they are easily treated so it makessense to test for them if you suspect they may be the culprit of yourdog's skin problems.Symptoms of inhalant allergies include: SCRATCHING, BITING, CHEWINGAT FEET AND CONSTANT LICKING. The itching may be most severe on feet,flanks, groin and armpits. Dogs may rub their face on the carpet. Earflaps may become red and hot. Chronic ear infections may follow.

Allergies have also been implicated as a possiblecause of Acral Lick Granulomas, a frustrating, treatment resistantcondition whereby the dog creates a sore on his skin from constantlickingIf a dog has the above symptoms and responds well to the treatmentmeasures outlined below, no further diagnostic tests may be needed. Ifthe problem is severe and does not respond to simple measures, allergyskin testing can be done. A portion of the skin is shaved and a varietyof substances are injected into the skin to see if they provoke areaction. If so, an individual series of injections are formulated togive the dog over a period of time (there are blood tests designed toidentify allergens without the skin testing, however their efficacy hadnot been proven. They should be reserved for cases where skin testing isnot possible).The medical term for scratching related to excessive itching is pruritus. This is the second most common reason people take their dogs to the vet (gastrointestinal problems such as top the list). The causes of pruritus can be quite complex, but there are two main reasons why dogs itch. The first has to do with the condition of the skin itself: Is it infected? Is it too oily? Is it too dry? Of these three, dry skin is a frequent occurrence. The second major cause of pruritus is allergies.
