Common Golden Retriever Allergies

Common Golden Retriever Allergies in Vancouver

Golden Retriever Allergies

Just like humans, our furry friends often suffer from sensitivities and allergies to different substances found in our environments, the products we use, and our foods. While it can be difficult to narrow down your pet's allergies on your own, our pet dermatology specialists can help you determine to what your dog is allergic and help you control his or her symptoms.

Common Allergies

Many of the same substances to which humans are allergic also cause golden retriever allergies. Some of these common allergens include the pollen of trees, grass, and weeds, mold, dust, mildew, various foods, fleas and ticks, prescription medications and parasite control products, perfume, cigarette smoke, cleaning products, fabrics, rubber, and certain plastic materials.

Recognize the Signs and Symptoms of Pet Allergies

If your dog suffers from pet allergies, he or she will display certain signs and symptoms. These symptoms will vary depending on the type of allergy your dog has. If you ever notice any changes in behavior or symptoms in your pet, it is a good rule of thumb to schedule an appointment with a veterinarian. Signs and symptoms of allergies include:

  • excessive scratching and licking
  • hair loss
  • scabs or flaking skin
  • redness or color change in skin
  • watery eyes
  • sneezing, coughing, and wheezing
  • snoring cause by blocked nasal passages
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • swollen paws
  • excessively chewing paws

If your golden retriever displays any signs or symptoms of dog skin allergies, we encourage you to schedule a pet dermatology appointment for your dog.

Schedule a Pet Dermatology Appointment for Your Dog's Skin Allergies

Our veterinary dermatology specialists will help you rule out any other causes of your pet's symptoms, pinpoint the specific allergens causing the reaction, and guide you through the treatment and pet environment control process.

  • "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."
