Common Husky Allergies in Vancouver
Siberian huskies make wonderful pets, but it’s important to keep in mind that this breed can develop certain allergies. Becoming familiar with the kinds of husky allergies that can occur can help you figure out if your pet has any. If your husky does show signs of allergies, our veterinarian in Vancouver offers effective treatment to relieve itching and other symptoms.
Common Dog Skin Allergies
Siberian huskies can develop common dog skin allergies, as well as allergies that cause respiratory symptoms or gastrointestinal symptoms. Some of these allergies include atopy, contact dermatitis and food allergies. Atopy generally includes allergies to dust, pollen, ragweed and similar allergens. Some atopic allergies occur seasonally, while others occur all year round. Huskies that have atopic allergies, which are the most common, usually experience itching, wheezing, redness and other symptoms. Skin symptoms typically affect areas with little hair or with thinner hair, such as the feet and belly.
Contact dermatitis does not occur as often in huskies, but it can develop due to allergies to chemical products, fabrics and other types of materials. Signs of contact dermatitis in huskies include redness, scratching and itching.
Food allergies can develop when huskies have a reaction to particular ingredients in pet foods, such as wheat, soy or corn. These reactions might affect the skin, causing redness and itching, but they can also produce gastrointestinal symptoms, such as soft stool.
