Is my dog allergic ?

Allergy, what is it?

Different types of allergy exist, the most common of which are:

  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Allergy to flea bites
  • Food allergy


An allergic dog will remain allergic for life, so he will need care… for life!

Allergy to flea bites

It is an allergic reaction to substances found mainly in the saliva that the flea injects when it stings a dog. A single bite can trigger a seizure, and several stings can trigger a violent reaction in some dogs.

Affected dogs should be treated all year round with appropriate insecticides and with specific treatment in case of crisis.

Food allergy

It is an allergy to one or more ingredients found in the dog’s diet (ration or sweets). It is managed with a suitable diet, excluding the incriminated ingredients, and a specific treatment in case of crisis.
