Is Your Dog Allergic to Something?


Hello, everyone! I hope you all are doing well and doing their best to stay healthy!
I know these times are hard for everyone, so I just wanted to remind everyone that their lots of ways to get supplies if you need them.

If you go to neighborhood groups on Facebook, most likely you will people who are donating food (pet and human) and other things you might need. There are so many good and generous people out there that want to help you, they might even be right around the corner from you!

There are also a lot of outlets out when it comes to your own mental health too. With everything that is going, it is completely normal to feel anxious or not like yourself.

These are strange times and lots of things are going on. So, please never feel ashamed to reach out and ask for a helping hand if you are in need! There are many sites and hotlines dedicated to helping you through this tough time!

I suffer from many allergies and can start sneezing at any second lol. This quarantine has brought me only silver lining, I can wear a mask in public and (to protect me from pollen) and not look like a total weirdo. Well, I guess I’m more aware of how quickly and regularly germs are passed from person to person (I will always be germaphobe from now on).

I didn’t know that dogs could have allergies too! It made me feel so bad for them. As someone who has dealt with allergies and allergy attacks their whole lives, I really feel for them. It must be hard for them to understand what is going on and why it won’t stop. But, I found some ways to identify and treat some of the allergies that your dog might be suffering from.

A lot of allergies in dogs have to do with their skin and since it could only happen at certain times of the year, it could be hard to track. But, if you notice that your dog scratches more during the summer, for example, it might be great to check for scabs and redness. that could be their way of telling that something is wrong and they need your help. Also, some of the skin allergies could stem from fleas. Apparently, the saliva from fleas could be a big irritant for dogs. So, fleas are a big thing to keep an eye on when it comes to dogs (even more so than usual).

Another big thing is food allergies, these might be a little easier to detect because the symptoms are more noticeable. Constant stomach issues are a big indicator that your dog may be allergic to something that you are feeding them. If these certain issues are coming up, it might be best to take your dog to the vet. This way the vet can most likely figure out and single out the certain ingredient that is harmful to your dog.

Make sure to keep out for certain things that might be affecting your dog. That way you can nip it in the bud early.

Also, don’t forget to have as much fun as you can with your dogs! They are probably loving all of the extra attention and time with you!

Until next time! #bullyfambam
