Antihistamines may provide complete or at least adequate relief for many dogs, especially when used in combination with omega-3 fatty acid supplements. Each dog is different, so you may have to try several types and dosages to find the best one.
Food allergy also has to be considered because it can cause the same signs as atopy. Allergy can develop to any food, though protein sources are most often the problem. Hypothyroidism can also contribute to many allergic conditions.
Veterinary dermatologists are available to address non-responsive or complicated cases.Page 1 | 2 | 3
