Allergies

Veterinary doctors are frequently presented with patients whose chief symptom is scratching and itching. There is a lengthy list of causes for itching. One of the first that is suspected is canine atrophy or skin allergy.

Allergies can be caused by pollens, grass, molds, foods, etc. Also it is not uncommon that a pet develops an allergy to something even if they have been exposed to it all their life.

A preliminary diagnosis can be obtained by a simple history analysis. To further pinpoint what your pet is allergic to your vet would need to draw blood and run an allergen panel. This tests the known allergens in your area.

The next step is to formulate a medical management program to suit your pets needs. The use of steroids is a common for short-term outbreaks. But it is not recommended for chronic cases because of the damage that is caused to the liver.
