ASPCA: One Out of Five Dogs Suffers from Allergies
Posted by Craig on Tuesday, June 12, 2007
1 out of 5 dogs suffer from allergiesThe American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) warns that summertime allergies affect animals, too, and that about one out of every five dogs nationwide suffers from some form of allergy.

Animal allergy symptoms commonly include licking, scratching, skin irritations, hair loss, and ear infections.

Veterinary dermatologist Jeanne Budgin says, "Many skin disorders are a result of allergies. It's extremely important for the comfort and health of your pet to determine the source of the allergy and treat it appropriately."

Common sources of allergic reactions in pets include:

  • Flea Allergies (the most common among dogs and cats)

  • Food Allergies

  • Tree & Grass Pollens

  • Molds

  • Dust Mites
Allergies are basically the same in humans and animals, and they're usually treated similarly. If you have a pet that may have allergies, talk to your veterinarian about allergy testing. If you find that your pet is allergic to indoor allergens like mold and dust mites, you can provide allergy relief with environmental control measures like dehumidifiers, air purifiers, and HEPA vacuum cleaners.

If your pet has irritated skin, try Quick Bath Cleansing Wipes; they not only contain Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera to sooth your pet's skin, but they also remove dander, which causes allergies for many humans.
