How to spot and treat dog allergies

Even though dogs can’t talk, their behaviors tell us when there’s an issue.

Itching (the most common sign)

Itching is by far the most common symptom of dog allergies, so we’ll develop a custom plan so your dog gets immediate relief. But beyond that, at Dutch, we focus on skin repair so that your dog’s allergies don’t return. When the skin barrier is compromised, allergies can penetrate and cause reactions like itchiness and infections, which is why with medication and topical therapeutics, we’re able to regenerate the skin barrier from the inside out.

Skin and/or ear infection

Most allergy medications deal with your dog’s inflamed skin or ear infections, but never address the underlying issues. At Dutch, we want you to fully understand what’s going on with your furry friends, whether it’s inflamed skin or recurring ear infections, which is why our plans combine medication and over-the-counter therapeutics to get to the root cause of the allergy, as well as relieve symptoms and prevent future issues from popping up.

Excessive grooming or licking

If your dog is excessively licking (usually their paws) and grooming themselves, it could be a sign that they’re trying to relieve itchiness caused by allergies. We can help put an end to their excessive licking, which might be the result of atopic dermatitis, caused by either food-related or environmental allergies.


Dragging their behind on the ground happens to the best of them, but if this is a common occurrence, it may indicate that they have an itchy butt. In people, pinworms are a common cause of an itchy anus, but in dogs — it isn’t parasites that cause it, but allergies. Our veterinarians are ready to help you better interpret your dog’s behavior and provide them with the relief they deserve.

Digestive issues

Can’t explain your dog’s most recent bout of vomiting and diarrhea? If a visit to the vet has ruled out other causes (like illnesses or parasites), allergies could be the underlying cause. Gastrointestinal issues can be a sign that your dog is allergic to something in their food, and we can help you figure out what it is. We’ve partnered with seasoned vets and allergists who we work closely with to discover the latest in scientific research when it comes to giving your dog the best life possible. And of course, food plays a major role in your furry companion living their best life. (Just ask your dog.)

What is the most common allergy in dogs?

Allergies will differ for each dog, but some of the most common allergens are pollen, mold spores, dust mites, shed skin cells (similar to pet allergies in humans), insect proteins (such as flea saliva), and some medications. The most common food allergens are proteins, especially those from beef, lamb, chicken, and dairy products. Similar to humans, dog allergies can be seasonal or year-round.

How can you tell if your dog has allergies?

There are various signs that could indicate that your dog is suffering from allergies. Some common symptoms of allergies include itchiness, hives, swelling, sneezing, and inflamed skin. While these are all common dog allergy symptoms, they can also be symptoms of other illnesses or health conditions. So make sure to see your veterinarian for an accurate diagnosis.

How can I help my dog with allergies?

Dog allergies can be quite debilitating for your pet, but fortunately, there are many ways you can help them, depending on the root of the issue. For example, if your dog suffers from a food allergy, you might need to change their diet to eliminate the troublesome ingredient. If your dog suffers from a flea allergy, a flea preventative may be recommended. For environmental allergens, pet parents should focus on keeping their home clean and dust-free while bathing pets regularly. 

On the other hand, allergy medication may be a temporary or long-term solution for your pet’s allergies. Our team of licensed vets specialize in allergy treatment and can prescribe prescription and non-prescription solutions for your pet.
