What are the signs my dog has allergies? Dogs can have allergic reactions, but they
do not always react the way humans do. I kind of figured that much. That’s why I
don’t know what the signs of a pet allergy are. Spring can leave humans with itchy eyes and
sneezes, whereas a dog will start licking its paws where it has contact dermatitis. The last time I heard contact dermatitis,
it was the doctor’s fancy way of saying I had poison ivy. Dogs tend to scratch at what irritates them.
Rolling around in the grass to ease itchy skin before scratching at it again suggests
a reaction to the pollen that has gotten into the coat. And my dog rolls around in darn near everything. Dogs may have allergic reactions to mold.
Some reaction to dust mites, while a few even have allergic reactions to flea bites. All dogs scratch at fleas. This is an allergic reaction to the bites
which is worse than the standard scratching due to flea bites. What are other signs of pet allergies? A dog with a food allergy has a similar reaction
to a toddler. Vomiting, whining and pooping a lot. You’d be surprised how many people have made
their pets their adopted children. Yeah, but a dog won’t pick or pay for your
nursing home. One possible sign of allergies in pets is inflammation on the feet and even
brown discoloration, from walking through something. Can they have the irritation on the paws and
the coat? Absolutely. The pet had to walk through it
before rolling in it. I need to know other signs before I pay a
fortune to see the vet. One sign of allergic reactions in pets is
constantly licking an area that isn’t obviously infected. It can be hard to tell whether the infection
is a cause or effect. Another sign of an allergic reaction is a
pet that rubs at its face constantly, even after you’ve confirmed it isn’t due to a bad
case of fleas or ticks. One sign of pet allergies is balding spots where you can’t say it is
mold or an infection. If in doubt, go to the doggie doctor. You do not have to use baby language with
me, or the dog.
