Allergic Reactions In Dogs Can Be Life

Dogs can have allergies to a variety of things. This means that their immune system can be extra sensitive to different allergens. An allergic reaction is an overreaction of the immune system to something it is exposed to. Some allergic reactions present as chronic skin issues or GI upset. Clinical symptoms of an acute allergic reaction in a dog are clear and straightforward. Depending on their fur, hives might be harder to see on certain breeds. Redness and warmness of skin comes from the body's inflammatory reaction. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, collapse, pale gums, and shock may be seen. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that can cause kidney failure in dogs and people. Getting this vaccine for your dog protects both you and your dog. Most allergic reactions aren't life-threatening if their dog gets immediate veterinary attention. Benadryl is safe for dogs. The injectable form takes effect quicker than oral. This gives relief quicker. If your dog has brachycephalic confirmation and/or concurrent brachychoid airway syndrome, they are at increased risk for issues with breathing problems. Not all dogs react the same to an allergen. Preventing a reaction can be tricky. Avoid switching products, such as carpet cleaner or detergents, that you may use to clean your dog's bedding and sleeping area. Always keep a close eye on your dog while they are outside. Take heed if you have bees, wasps, or other stinging insects in your area. . . .
