Atopic Dermatitis in Dogs is an allergic reaction
Skin diseases account for a high proportion of visits to Vets. The most common canine skin disease is Atopic Dermatitis (Atopy) which is caused by allergic reaction to inhaled allergens such as pollen, mould spores, house dust mites, chemicals on carpets and air fresheners -
Most cases are mild and cause minor irritation but dermatitis can cause significant long term suffering with symptoms like itching (pruritus as the Vets call it) causing scratching, inflamed skin, and fur loss. Atopy is more common in certain breeds, with small breed dogs most commonly affected.
House Dust Mite allergy is a reaction to the proteins in minute particles of dried dust mite faeces deposited on fabrics and surfaces. Even when house dust mites are killed by insecticide sprays the cause of this allergy remains behind.
Food allergies are not all that common even though some vets believe that certain ingredients such as wheat, beef, chicken and soya are responsible for up to 20% of cases of skin allergies in dogs. Having said that there is no doubt that they do occur, and some owners feed hypoallergenic food as a precaution.
Contact allergies, such as those caused by washing powders, grass and so on, are even less common than food allergies, but do need to be considered in dogs which have unusual patterns of allergies, such as redness only on the belly that has appeared just after their bed has been washed for example.
Fleas, Ticks and Mites will cause irritation and itchy-
While Fleas and Ticks may be visible to the owner, Mites are harder to diagnose. If untreated then Mites will cause Mange.
See your vet to establish if your dog has mange and which type it is. If your dog has Sarcoptic mange it is likely to need veterinary treatment in the first instance. When that’s dealt with, if you’re looking for a more natural solution to prevent further outbreaks and help heal the damage -
For Demodex mange where the dog has an impaired immune system or is suffering from malnutrition or stress -
These allergens can often be food or contact allergies. Meat proteins and cereal starches are common culprits as are house dust mites and pollens. Some breeds of dog have a genetically more susceptible immune system.
