Fleas, ticks, lice and mange partly represent the spectrum of parasitic infestation conditions. Some characteristics of skin allergies are inflammation of the skin, redness, rashes that can be caused by flea-bites, canine atopy (hypersensitivity) or food borne allergies. Fleas may contain histamine-like substances in their saliva that can cause an allergic reaction. Environmental and pollen allergies can also cause canine atopy. Dogs can be allergic to some proteins, fats and various types of vitamins in dog food. Picking the right food for your pet can also help control allergies. Our veterinary staff can help you in finding the right food for your dog.
