Like their owners, dogs can also experience a variety of allergies. Watch this video to learn about the three most common allergies seen in dogs. If you believe your dog may have an allergy, contact your veterinarian. The most common allergies seen in dogs are food allergies, seasonal allergies, and flea allergies
Food allergies cause symptoms like vomiting and lack of appetite and are often due to a dog's allergy to the protein source in its food. Seasonal allergies produce itchy skin, red skin, and secondary infections, and are usually due to pollen. Flea allergies present themselves like seasonal allergies. In addition, an allergic dog can have any combination of the three.
