Allergies and Your Pet
Allergic Dermatitis: Allergic dermatitis refers to an allergy that manifests as "itchy skin". It is the most common reason a pet owner seeks veterinary care. Before appropriate therapy can be instituted, the cause of the allergic dermatitis must be uncovered. Causes of allergic skin disease include flea allergy dermatitis, food allergy and atopic dermatitis (allergy to pollens, weeds, dust mites, etc.) Many pets have a combination of allergies. Control of one or more of the offending problems may result in partial or complete control of your pets' symptoms.
The most common ingredients that pet's are allergic to are proteins like beef, poultry and lamb, and grains like corn, wheat and rice. Diagnosis and treatment of food allergies are through food elimination trials. Usually a pet is switched to a novel protein diet, meaning a diet with ingredients that the pet has not been previously exposed to. It is important the pet be maintained on this diet for at least six to eight weeks and not be given any snacks or treats that may contain the offending ingredients.
