Discerning between environmental and food allergens is the first step to pet allergy management

Itchy dog?

In other parts of the country, parasites like fleas may be the first thing to consider; however, fleas are less common in AZ.

Some of the most common signs of pet allergies include scratching, redness, stinky and goopy ears, head shaking, paw chewing and skin rash. If your dog has signs of allergies, bring them in because these problems may get worse and more challenging to treat successfully.

The veterinarians at Primary Pet Care are especially interested in allergy management and are skilled in achieving results quickly

Long-term allergy management is crucial to maintaining a higher level of skin health and comfort for your pet. Proper use of allergy medications and biologics will keep your pet from developing chronic changes to their skin.

Chronic skin changes make your pet much more susceptible to infection and disease, so bring them in early. Bringing your pet to a veterinarian who is highly skilled in managing your dog’s allergies is essential.

When you suspect your dog or cat has allergies, your vet will take care to discern between environmental and food allergies

Some cases are obvious, but some take more finesse to differentiate between the two. With a more specific diagnosis there will be more accurate and effective treatment options.

Once your veterinarian adequately manages the allergies, your dog’s ear infections, skin infections, and redness will go away significantly or entirely.
