Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Does Dog Eye Mucus Indicate Canine Allergies We have a German Shepherd that we found out has a dog food allergy to chicken.
To be completely sure, there are two types of tests you can ask your vet to perform that can determine what your dog is allergic to; blood tests and skin tests. The best treatment is regular baths in special shampoos to calm the skin and, again, Benadryl to relieve the itching. A contact allergy (otherwise known as Contact Hypersensitivity, Contact Dermatitis)is when your dog is allergic to something that he has come into contact with. If you suspect your dog has a contact allergy, you need to identify what the cause is and eliminate it from the environment. Just like humans, dogs can also develop different allergic symptoms when their immune system is sensitive to certain substances called allergens. This is not the only type of allergy that a dog can have, but it is the only type that explains how a puppy can be allergic to grass. Grass allergy in dogs occurs, among other reasons, because their skin is vulnerable and it cannot act as a barrier. The hypersensitivity reaction represents an exaggerated immune response determined by exposure to an allergen. An atopy is something defined as a congenital predisposition that favors the occurrence of allergic reactions to both dogs and humans. As said, the skin barrier is no longer efficient in case of atopic dogs, fact which allows the adherence of bacterial or fungal pathogens to certain cells from the skin’s layer. The best long-term solution to prevent and treat allergies of this type is to change the environment in which the doggy lives. As you can see, if your dog develops such an allergy, you will have to accept treatment, even if this treatment has side effects or if it is only effective for a short period of time.
The cause of allergies is really hard to determine in case of people, not to mention in case of dogs.


A flea allergy doesn't mean that your dog is infested with fleas, in fact, if he is allergic to fleas he will react with just one flea-bite. If flea eggs and waste are present you should see white or black grains of sandy material drop onto the sheet. In this case, when a pooch’s skin is in direct contact with grass, it develops a sensitive reaction to it that manifests in different ways.
In this case, grass is an allergen that enters a dog’s body transcutaneous or, simply put, through its skin. Although a pup is predisposed to having an atopic allergy, it can be protected if it is not exposed to it.
It is an allergic skin condition that can manifest through the hyperpigmentation or the lichenification (thick skin) of the affected areas in advanced stages. Thus, it would be ideal not to come in contact with grass or, at least, to the certain grass types that harm it. When your pup suffers, you could take the wrong decisions and pick a treatment that only reduces inflammation and its itchiness level.
Luckily a contact allergy is quite sudden so you only usually need to think of what you have introduced into his environment that day. An atopic allergy can be triggered by aeroallergens, such as the pollen from different Poaceae (Gramineae) plants, shrubs and trees. However, it seems that such an innocent activity can harm around 10% from all the dogs out there.
Atopy includes affections such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis, which is exactly what a pup is suffering from in case it is allergic to grass. Also, there are atypical evolutions of this disease that are difficult to diagnose such as external otitis, rhinitis, and allergic conjunctivitis and so on. There are specific blood tests that can be made in order to identify the exact type of grass or plant that harms your pooch.


If you see evidence of fleas or a flea allergy, you can treat it without a vet visit.The best treatment is a medicated bath and Benadryl for the itching. Of course, there are certain breeds that might be in danger to develop such allergy and some that are protected from it. Breeds such as pug, French bulldog, Cocker, Dalmatian and terrier have a congenital predisposition to develop atopic dermatitis or, more specific, grass allergies. The first skin lesions in case of grass allergies look like reddened areas and they rapidly develop in macules, papules, pustules, purulent inflammations of the follicles and furunculosis.
In order to understand how this works, knowing what exactly atopic allergies are and how they can affect a pooch’s skin is mandatory.
You can at least look up what plants grow in the area where you took your doggy and it got the allergy. Topical corticosteroids may be an alternative in mild cases or chronic cases, but only if they follow a systemic treatment that controlled the main clinical symptoms. Put a collar around its neck that stops it from biting itself when scratching is no longer enough to reduce its feeling of pruritus induced by the said allergy to grass.
Over time, dogs can become allergic to more and more things which can make this allergy turn into year-round problem. With the help of this type of treatment, around 75% of allergic dogs have a positive response.
