There are many different symptoms or reactions to dog allergies. Dog allergies are treatable. Aussie Pooch Mobile can help treat this. Phone: 1300 369 369. Always seek the advice off your veterinarian to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment for your dog. And be sure to check out the natural treatments veterinarian Dr. Jones offers us for treating dogs with allergies, including a number of holistic options that can help your dog, such as essential fatty acids, probiotics, and antioxidants like vitamin C.
Below is a list of some (but not all) of the symptoms your Miniature Schnauzer dog might have when an allergen is present:
- constant licking or chewing at paws, abdomen, anal area
- hair loss
- poor coat quality
- lack of appetite
- breathing problems
- excessive gas
- eye and/or nose discharge
- head shaking
The least common among of the dog allergies is the contact allergy. It occurs when your dog comes into contact with certain objects that cause an allergic reaction. The item(s) could be anything from plastic food bowls, flea collars, fabrics from clothing, dog toys, bedding, carpet, etc…
Allergic reactions from a contact allergen include: redness, itching and swelling. Areas of the body most affected are the dog’s face, paws, and legs. Your vet will do a skin scraping to rule out other causes.
Treatment is easy enough for this type of dog allergy ….. simply remove the item from your Schnauzer’s environment. But that is more easily said than done.
Since your dog can’t tell you what’s causing the reaction, you will have to try and determine that on your own. Try keeping a journal of your dog’s activities. This way when you see your dog scratching excessively you will know what he was doing just prior to the reaction. A bit of detective work on your part will help figure out what item(s) are the culprits.
