Tips To Help Your Dog With Allergies

Dogs with allergies can suffer from intense itching, scratching, and chewing. Fortunately, there are ways to help manage allergy symptoms and prevent secondary infection. Without proper care and attention, allergies can lead to hair loss and skin problems. Here are tips to help manage allergy symptoms in dogs:

  • Flea preventive program

Dogs must be placed on effective flea prevention throughout the year, and not just during the flea season. Some dogs are allergic to flea bites, and can suffer from extreme itching after being bitten by even a few fleas.

  • Regular baths

Dogs benefit from regular baths (at least 1-2 times a week) using a gentle shampoo that is soap-free, and formulated especially for dogs. Special shampoo ingredients, like aloe and oatmeal, have been shown to alleviate itching.

  • Choose the right type of pet food

Give your dog only premium quality pet food. If your pet has food allergy, try switching to a high-quality diet that is free of grains and other potential food allergens, such as chicken and beef. Visit this site to learn more.
