How to recognize an allergy problem in dogs

HOW TO RECOGNIZE ALLERGIES IN DOGS  by Marie/ Ask the Pet Nurse  ( NuVet Plus) 




Pets, just like people, can struggle from allergies. These allergies can range from seasonal to more severe reactions. However unlike people, pets can’t vocalize their discomfort or irritation when allergies strike. As a pet parent, you may be able to help your pooch by keeping an eye on some common indicators of a pet-allergy.

Licking
Many dogs will repeatedly lick an area that is irritating them. You may notice this because of a constant wet spot on your pooch or irritation that arises near the area.
Scratching
Some dogs will incessantly scratch an area. Commonly, it can be the ears; another indication that an allergy may be present.
Paw Chewing and Swelling
Dogs that lick or chew their paws often may be reacting to an allergy. Some pooches will even chew their paws to the point of bleeding and swelling. This is another common indicator of an allergy that your pooch is dealing with.
Sneezing
Just as you may sneeze from allergies, your pup can too. Sneezing that is noticeably excessive or not typical of your pet can be a sign of an allergy.
Vomiting or Loose stool 
Although not the most pleasant of symptoms, this one is hard to ignore due to how obvious it is to a pet owner. Vomiting and diarrhea commonly are associated with an allergy due to ingestion, however could also indicate more severe allergies to outside factors.
Inhaled, Ingested, Contact with Skin
Like people, dogs can suffer from seasonal allergies as well as mold, dust, and other materials. Food as well as topical products such as shampoos can also cause allergy symptoms.
It can be difficult to identify your pooch’s specific allergy but paying attention to when, where, and how often you see these symptoms is a great start to identify what may be causing your dog’s discomfort. Visiting your dog’s vet is a good idea when allergies are suspected. Your vet can provide more insight and strategies on how to appropriately address your dog’s allergy concerns.
In addition to seeing your vet, feeding your dog a healthy, balanced diet is a great way to help keep your dog healthy and help limit allergen exposure in food consumption.
