Allergies (Inhaled Allergens and Food)
Common signs of allergies are inflamed, itchy skin around a dog’s feet, face, ears, and “armpit” folds. In addition, recurring ear infections may indicate an allergic reaction. Your veterinarian at Yankee Hill Veterinary Hospital can pinpoint the allergy-causing source by blood testing and food trials with a hypoallergenic diet. Food allergies can also be responsible for recurrent vomiting and diarrhea episodes. There are a host of medications, both topical and oral, that can alleviate the discomfort caused by allergies.
