Husky Allergies

Common Husky Allergies in Vancouver

Husky Allergies

Siberian huskies make wonderful pets, but it’s important to keep in mind that this breed can develop certain allergies. Becoming familiar with the kinds of husky allergies that can occur can help you figure out if your pet has any. If your husky does show signs of allergies, our veterinarian in Vancouver offers effective treatment to relieve itching and other symptoms.

Common Dog Skin Allergies

Siberian huskies can develop common dog skin allergies, as well as allergies that cause respiratory symptoms or gastrointestinal symptoms. Some of these allergies include atopy, contact dermatitis and food allergies. Atopy generally includes allergies to dust, pollen, ragweed and similar allergens. Some atopic allergies occur seasonally, while others occur all year round. Huskies that have atopic allergies, which are the most common, usually experience itching, wheezing, redness and other symptoms. Skin symptoms typically affect areas with little hair or with thinner hair, such as the feet and belly.

Contact dermatitis does not occur as often in huskies, but it can develop due to allergies to chemical products, fabrics and other types of materials. Signs of contact dermatitis in huskies include redness, scratching and itching.

Food allergies can develop when huskies have a reaction to particular ingredients in pet foods, such as wheat, soy or corn. These reactions might affect the skin, causing redness and itching, but they can also produce gastrointestinal symptoms, such as soft stool.

  • "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."
