We have a male fawn pug that we have had for 2 1/2 years. This season (for the first time) we have noticed he is very itchy. Constantly scratching his belly and gnawing on his paws. Do dog get allergies? If so, what do you do for them?
Yes, dogs can have allergies and we see many allergic dogs in the spring and summer. First, your pet should be seen by a vet to confirm a diagnosis. many other problems can casue itchy skin ( fleas, mange etc.. ). Allergies are treated differently from case to case. Sometimes we try anti-histamines and other times the dogs need cortisone. Sometimes we allergy test as well. Good luck, vetcare
