Unlike the vast majority of traditional DVM’s, some dog owners disagree that dogs should be put right away on Anti-allergy drugs or Anti-viral medications in case of an allergic condition. Yes, there are safer ways. The most decent idea is to get a quick appointment with your veterinarian and know the cause of the allergy. Extenuating symptoms without knowing the actual problem is a short-term fix, and honestly, a sincere vet’s recommendation would be to take time and eradicate the allergy than to have a quick but a short-term fix. The allergies in dogs may vary from common ones to potentially severe ones. Analysing your dog’s diet and if it’s allergic to something, keeping a check if it’s itchy or has an oozing skin is the least we can do. The vaccinations obviously are always mandated.
Just like humans, dogs need diversity in their diet. An important thing to know is that a dog’s immune system is partially genetic, but we can certainly resolve environmental irritants. Switch to the non-smoking environment around them and always make sure drinking water isn’t contaminated or has fluoride. Comb your dog atleast once on a daily basis just like we do to ourselves as it prevents the dogs from flea allergies. Using a flea comb is always advised. A soothing bath twice a week would not take much of our time but does keep them away from fleas. A clean dog is never attractive to insects. Plus your dog remains dirt free.
