Skin Allergies


Does your dog’s belly look like this? ☝️

If so, they need to see a Veterinarian ASAP. Skin allergies are uncomfortable and irritating for both pets and pet owners alike.

This particular distribution of inflammation on the belly is a classic example of contact allergy. There is not much fur in this area to protect the skin from contact with grasses, weeds or plants.

There are many potentially allergenic plants. Take a look at the poster from Dermcare and see if any of these look familiar in your garden.
