Dog Allergies cause your dog discomfort.

There are plenty of allergens that can cause dog allergies. Some dogs are allergic to airborne allergens such as grass or tree pollen. These are called inhalant allergies.

Often seasonal allergens can simalarly affect both you and your pet. The difference is that inhalant allergens like grass pollen in spring and summer, and ragweed pollen in late summer early fall cause different symptoms. With allergies in dogs, your dog's skin will become very itchy and his hair can fall out where as you will likely have a sinus infection.

Another cause of allergic reactions in dogs can come from flea saliva. If your pooch is madly scratching away, especially on his underside or biting himself raw it may be a reaction to flea saliva. To combat this you may want to try adding Brewer's yeast and garlic to his food. Or add lavender, rosemary sprigs or cedar chips to his bed area to help keep fleas away.

A dog allergy can also be caused by ingredients found in commercial dog foods. Consult your veterinarian for dietary advice. When your dog is allergic to something in his diet it can lead to stomach and intestinal problems.

Here are a few things to try to relieve your pet's allergies:

  • Omega 3 and Omega 6 supplements to keep his skin supple and healthy. Many dog food companies add these fatty acids to their premium dog foods.
  • Antihistamines like Benedryl. Be sure to consult your vet for proper dosage.
  • Soak your pooch in a cool bath with shampoo containing aloe vera, oatmeal and eucalyptus, to cool and calm his skin.
