Treatments For Your Dog’s Allergy Problems
No matter how well you care for your dog, there is always a chance that they will suffer from an allergic reaction that will require some form of dog allergy treatment. They could come into contact with something in the air, in their food or in their surroundings.
Many dogs experience skin problems. There is often no way for you to know that your dog is allergic to something until the reactions and symptoms have begun. The redness and itching for example.
There are several natural dog allergy treatments that you can use to help ease these reactions quickly and efficiently.
Some of the most common allergies in dogs do occur on the skin and are quite often triggered by fleas and other dog parasites. These allergies are manifested through frequent scratching, licking and chewing.
If you notice that your dog seems to be itching in some parts of his body, particularly the paws, the rectum and the tail, chances are that he might have contracted some kind of skin allergy from fleas or other parasites.
Oftentimes, the only dog allergy treatment necessary for these types of allergic reactions is to give your dog a thorough bath using a good anti-flea shampoo, or to sprinkle his fur with anti-flea powder.
Oatmeal shampoos are also quite effective. Other than that, there isn’t much that you have to do because the skin allergies will disappear on their own once the parasites have gone.
Severe Dog Allergy Symptoms
However, if the dog allergy symptoms are already quite serious, you can also ask your vet to prescribe a topical application that would lessen the itching and irritation, and would make your dog feel more comfortable as their skin heals.
As regards to dog food allergies, you will have to recall which foods your dog ate before the allergic reactions started to develop. Some commercial dog foods may contain ingredients that your dogs are particularly sensitive to, so it a good idea to switch them to ‘real’ food, at least while you are trying to find a suitable replacement for his regular food.
- Your vet might also recommended putting him on a hypoallergenic diet, in which case you will have to buy special dog food for them.
If sneezing and watery eyes are the symptoms that you can see, it’s very likely that your dog has inhaled something that he is allergic to, possibly air fresheners or some other chemical substance. If you take him to your vet right away, he will possibly be administered an antihistamine.
Skin Care Solutions
If your dog has skin problems then homeopathic formulas, such as Derma-IonX may help ease the skin irritations. The symptoms may include dry, itchy red or cracked skin. It may also appear rough and scaly.
Derma-IonX also helps support symptom relief for skin conditions such as rashes, hot spots, hives, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and more. What I like about this product is that it is all natural and therefore shows no negative signs or side effects that other skin care medications can. Plus being an over-the-counter natural medicine it may be used with many other medications…but if you are not sure you can always check and ask me. I will do my best to find the answer for you.
