Common Dalmatian Allergies

Common Dalmatian Allergies in Richmond and Vancouver

If you notice that your Dalmatian is scratching at their skin intensely, or their coat contains bumps, your pet is likely to have common Dalmatian allergies. Dogs can have allergies to common materials found in food, nature or chemicals, just like humans do. If your Dalmatian is sneezing frequently, or you find raw spots on their skin where they have chewed, allergies are probably present.

Allergy Symptoms

Signs that your Dalmatian is struggling with allergies include:

• Excessive scratching, especially around the ears, the base of the tail and paws.

• Skin that appears moist, red or has hives on it.

• Scabs that your dog continually scratches.

• Sneezing, itchy, or runny eyes.

Treatment for Common Dalmatian Allergies in Vancouver

When your Dalmatian allergies have your dog scratching or coming out with hives, your veterinarian may prescribe antihistamines to help get your dog's allergies under control. If the coat of your dog has been affected, treatment can also include fatty acids to help reduce skin irritations.

Common Dalmatian Allergies Treated

Dogs are allergic to certain substances, just as people are. Your dog may be allergic to certain ingredients in their food. Dogs can also have seasonal allergies, problems with spray chemicals or be allergic to mold and mildew. The best way to treat your dog for allergies is to remove the allergen. If your veterinarian suspects food allergies, you may have to try different brands of dog food in order to find out what ingredients are bothering your dog.

When you work with a dermatology specialist to treat Dalmatian allergies, you are giving your pet the best shot at feeling better. Together you will discuss the food your dog eats, and any exposure they may have to common allergens. Your veterinarian will help you develop a plan to best treat your beloved pet for the allergies they are struggling with.

  • "Absolutely amazing Doctor along with the receptionist! We traveled from Calgary to see Dr.Charach and our dog left the clinic with relief. Not only did he have fabulous attention and care for our dog, he also had it for my husband and I as we were a mess as we had no idea what was wrong nor did the Vets in Calgary. Our dog is still needing care and Dr.Charach and his team still provide amazing service over the phone!"

  • "I don't have enough positive words to describe how thankful I am about Dr. Charach expertise and his team's kindness...I wish I had found Dr. Charach before spending thousands of dollars with no results. I don't consider his fees unreasonable considering the amazing results I had. The clinic's staff was very organized, super nice and knowledgeable. 5 stars all the way to Dr. Charach and the clinic's team."

  • "I have been so grateful for Dr. Charach’s dermatology expertise in treating my shar pei’s seasonal allergies, skin infections and food allergies. He takes the time to go over the history every visit to ensure that we are not confusing the symptoms with other possible diagnosis. He is also very up to date on all the current immunotherapy and pharmaceutical options. I always leave his office with a plan and feel that my dog has been well cared for. Over the past 5 years I have seen significant improvement in my dog’s quality of life and thanks to Dr. Charach. I recommend Dr. Charach to any animal with skin issues."
