Canine Allergies: Most Common Causes, Best Tests, and Effective Treatments
The major symptom of every type of allergy in dogs is itching.
Maybe this has happened to you: Youre reading or watching TV or at your computer, and your dog is lying on the carpet near you. Youre absorbed in what you are doing, but all of a sudden, you realize that your dog is licking or chewing himself, or scratching his ear with a hind paw. Hey! you say to your dog. Stop that! Your dog stops, looks at you, and wags his tail. You go back to doing what you were doing and a few minutes later, you hear the tell-tale sounds of licking or chewing or scratching again. Every dog does a certain amount of self-grooming to keep himself clean and every dog owner should be aware of how much is normal, and how much is too much, because too much is often the first indication that a dog is having an allergy attack.
