It’s Allergy Season! Feeling Itchy?

Although we’re all beyond ecstatic that the weather is finally getting warmer, a pesky side effect of Spring is that it’s allergy season, too! Are you or your pet feeling itchy and scratchy? One of the most common reasons for your pet to come into the vet clinic is because of allergies. Unfortunately, it can be a very frustrating situation for pet owners to be in. The purpose of this blog post is to open your eyes to the many different facets of pet allergies

What is an allergy?

 

It is a lifelong, incurable condition where the body reacts to an allergen in a negative way. Allergies are frequently known to cause secondary issues, such as skin and ear infections.

 

 

What causes allergies?

 

An allergy can form if your dog or cat has been exposed to a specific allergen at least twice. This sounds kind of confusing, I know, so let me try to explain this a bit better! Say your dog develops an allergy to dust. The first time he is exposed to it, his immune system will produce antibodies. Each exposure that occurs after this will cause a reaction to occur between the dust and the antibody. This reaction will release a large abundance of white blood cells and a chemical called histamine, which causes all of the symptoms we see in our pets a “allergic reactions”. As they try to get rid of these allergens, skin, digestive, and respiratory issues can appear. In essence, their immune system is registering the allergen as being a dangerous substance that it must get rid of. For example, you will likely see itching or swollen skin. Just like with humans, heredity can play a large part in your pet developing allergies. It has been statistically proven that some breeds are more likely than others to develop allergies, as well.

 

 

Canine breeds that are more likely to get allergies are:

 

  • Mastiff breeds (Bulldogs, Boxers, Pit Bulls)
  • Shih Tzus and Lhasa Apsos
  • Bichon Frise
  • Retrievers (Labradors, Goldens, Chesapeake Bay, Shar Pei, Spaniels, Springers, Brittanies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles)
  • Terriers (Especially Wheatons, Yorkshire, and Jack Russells)
  • German Shepherds

 

Shih Tzus and Lhasa Apsos

These breeds are so allergic to grasses, dust mites, molds, pollens, etc (allergy syndrome called “atopy”) that they actually have less than a 50% chance of allergy desensitization shots working. Other dog breeds have a 75% allergy cure or control rate with monthly allergy shots. You know your Shih Tzu or Lhasa has allergies if they lick their paws, or the paws are stained a reddish brown from stealth licking they sneak when you are not looking (like when you are sleeping.)

What happens if you leave allergies without treatment?

If left untreated, your pet will likely get progressively more irritated and will continue to lick, itch and scratch every area that is bothering them. This can lead to additional sores that could lead to secondary infections.

Types of Allergies

The first step is to treating allergies is to isolate and determine the allergen which is causing the reactions. There are four main categories of allergens that it could fall under: fleas, environment, contact, and food. Fleas and environment are the most probable causes of allergies in your dogs and cats.

Flea Allergies

One of the most common types of allergies are caused by fleas. However, it isn’t the actual fleas that trigger the allergy. It is actually the proteins found in the saliva of fleas that cause the allergic reaction! Even a single bite from a flea can cause your pet to itch for 5 days. This is just another reason why it is so important to use a flea preventative. Flea allergies are the most common form of allergies seen in dogs. You may not think that you see fleas on your pet, but they are likely there.

It's Allergy Season!

Flea Dirt

Contact Allergies

These are the reactions that occur when your pets skin gets in physical contact with a specific allergic material. Common materials can include flea collars, household cleaners, fertilizers, and insecticides.

Fertilizer

Food Allergies

Food related allergies typically develop over time as your pets immune system develops. It is most commonly triggered by an animal protein, but also by carbohydrates, preservatives or dyes. If your pet has this type of allergy, they will likely need a specialized diet (see section below). The best way to determine if your pet has a food allergy is to do an elimination diet. This is when you would take away all potential allergens and introduce them one by one until they have another reaction. When the reaction occurs, you SHOULD know what the culprit allergen is. Unfortunately, you may need to try a few different diets before you find the plan that doesn’t cause an allergic reaction.

Environmental Allergies

Environmental allergens are those that are inhaled, such as pollens and molds found outside (especially in spring and summer). Your pet will likely be seen itching their feet, ears, groin, and underarms. In dogs, environmental allergies can even lead to hair loss in spots around the body from persistent scratching and chewing.

Pollen

Pollen

Canine Atopic Dermatitis (airborne allergies)

This is a genetic inflammatory skin disorder where your dog will become sensitive environmental allergens like pollen and mold. It can be season or all year round, depending on the allergen they are sensitive to and can occur within 1-3 years of exposure. An easy way to think about atopy is that your pet inhales an allergen, but instead of sneezing, they get itchy skin. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple and it isn’t even fully understood yet. The main thing to keep in mind is that these allergens come from the air and will only affect someone who is genetically programmed to be bothered by the allergen. Seasonal itchiness from atopy typically begins between the ages of 1 and 3 years. Food allergies, on the other hand, become apparent closer to 5-6 years of age.

Immunotherapy for Allergies

Immunotherapy for Allergies

Secondary Infections

These types of infections involve bacteria and/or yeast at sites on the body where your pet is commonly itchy. Since these microorganisms live on the skin naturally, when your pet scratches, they are irritating the skin and allowing the organisms to gain access to the inner tissue layers and reproduce. Secondary infections are typically recurrent issues.

Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to treat allergies unless we know exactly what is causing the reactions in your pet. Various things can be done to try to treat allergies. These range from immunotherapy to antihistamines to steroids to eliminating diets.

Treating Allergies

 

Treating allergies can vary drastically from pet to pet, so it is ESSENTIAL that you speak to your veterinarian as soon as you begin to see signs of allergies in your pets. There are many diseases and health issues that show similar symptoms as allergies, so it is important not to self-diagnose your pets!! Nonprescription treatments can be used to treat some allergies. This includes antihistamines, which have been known to alleviate 20% of allergies in pets. These are far less harmful than steroids, but will not work nearly as well.

 

Cats are SIGNIFICANTLY more responsive to antihistamines, but they must be medicated twice daily. However, make sure you talk to your vet before giving your pet any medication for proper dosing instructions. Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids can be given, but can take over a month before any sort of improvement is seen. They work by disrupting the production of inflammatory chemicals that are found in the skin. What’s great about these, is that they may postpone the need to use steroids. The not so great thing about them is that they can take a while before any improvement is seen. Another thing to keep in mind is that antihistamines and fatty acids work synergistically together. This means that they help each other out when used at the same time and end up working even better when compared to being used alone. Frequent baths using prescription shampoos can definitely help relieve itchiness. Make sure you let the shampoo sit for 3-5 minutes. Topical sprays and creams can also be given and typically contain either an antihistamine or steroid. However, make sure you speak to your vet about what should be given.

Omega 3 Supplements

Omega 3 Supplements

 

Prescription treatments are typically more effective at treating allergies. Steroids can be used to relieve signs of allergies, but they can have some negative long-term side-effects. However, they are typically the first line of defense for allergies. A dog with atopy will typically respond within a couple of days. Side effects of steroids include excessive thirst, hunger, and urination and potential suppression of the immune system. Cyclosporin typically relieves symptoms in nearly 75% pf pets. This is because it works by targeting the CAUSE of the disease; however, it should only be used for the stubborn pets that don’t respond to other treatments. In essence, this product modulates the immune response. A new “miracle” product, Oclacitinib, begins alleviating symptoms within 4 hours of dosing and lasts for 24 hours. As mentioned in other sections of this blog post, prescription diets can also be given to treat food allergies. Injections are other options that can be given to your pet, but it can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months before any results are observed. A safer route than injections is sublingual therapy. It has the same end result, but is overall safer for your pet.

National Pet Dental Health Month

This month is National Pet Dental Health Month!!

 

To celebrate, Long Meadow Veterinary Clinic is offering 15% off of all dental procedures and care for National Pet Dental Health Month.

 

National Pet Dental Health Month

 

Does your dog or cat have terrible breath? This could be a major risk to their health and could be a side effect of damaged teeth or gums. Did you know that if your pet has dental issues, it could cause, or be caused by, other significant health issues? When your pet comes in for their semi-annual exams, their teeth should be checked for any signs of problems.

 

However, if any of the problems listed below seem to be occurring, it might be a good idea to bring them in for a quick check-up.

 

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Retained baby teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Abnormal drooling, chewing, or dropping the food from their mouth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Refusal to eat or reduced eating
  • They appear to have pain around or in their mouth
  • Bleeding or swelling in or around the mouth
  • Behavioral changes

 

National Pet Dental Health Month

 

 

Did you know that your pets can have a lot of the same dental issues that we can have?

 

  • Broken teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Teeth abscesses
  • Oral cysts or tumors
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Broken jaw

 

 

Check out this quiz to see how much you know about pet dental health!

Daily Tooth Brushing

 

A great way to ensure your pet’s dental health is a daily tooth brushing. Check out this video that goes into great detail about how to properly brush your pet’s teeth. Unfortunately, if brushing isn’t done every day, then it won’t be doing much for helping the overall health.

 

National Pet Dental Health Month

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease is the most common condition that occurs in both dogs and cats. The crazy thing about it is that it is completely preventable! As pets age, starting around 3 years old, evidence of this disease will become apparent and will get worse over time if nothing is done to prevent it. If this disease progresses, it can cause problems in other parts of the body including the kidney, liver, and heart.

 

So how does this disease start? Plain old tartar! With a simple dental procedure, we can safely and effectively remove all of the tartar above and below the gum line. During the dental procedure, radiographs (x-rays) will sometimes be completed to see if the roots of the teeth are affected and to determine the severity of the disease.

 

There are different stages of periodontal disease, on a scale of 0-4, with 0 being the best. I’ve linked a FANTASTIC website to see how each of the stages looks like. It has both regular photos and radiograph images. Try to determine where your pet sits on the scale!

Nail Trimming at Home

Nail Trimming at Home

 

Nail trimming at home can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! Clipping your pets nails is a regular part of their grooming routine. If left uncut, irregular gait and breakage can occur and cause issues such as lameness and infection. However, trimming your dog or cats nails can be a terrifying process especially if you don’t know exactly where to cut the nail. This blog will give you some tips and general guidelines on how to cut your dog or cats nails at home with ease.

https://www.petfinder.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/100590909-464-trim-dogs-nails-632×475.jpg

Getting started

 

You may want to try slowly introducing the clippers to your pet. Let them smell the clippers first and even clip only a few nails for the first couple of times. That way they can slowly get used to them and learn that is isn’t as scary as they think. After each paw is completely trimmed, you can give them a treat or a good pat on the belly to associate nail trimming with a positive outcome.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/365776800958701855/

 

Another thing to try is just handle their feet, especially if they don’t like their feet to be touched. If you’re sitting down watching TV or playing with them on the floor, spend some addition time touching and holding the paws and paying special attention to each toe/nail. What this is doing is desensitizing them to having their paws touched, even if they are typically uncomfortable during nail trims.

http://www.petsgroomingprices.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/dog-treats.jpg

 

Once your pet is used to this action, you can introduce the nail clippers by touching them to the nails. However, you will not cut the nails at this point, just associate the tool to the nail and reward with a treat. Once they are used to this, then you can begin by trimming the nails, a couple at a time and reinforce their good behavior with a treat. You want to make sure that you do not give them a treat when they act scared or fidget around. By doing so, you will be negatively reinforcing the bad behavior and they will continue act out in this behavior because they think they will receive more treats.

 

 

Associate with a Positive Outcome

 

One of the most common difficulties that pet owners face is the general handling of their pet. Normally, the dog/cat will be very hesitant to let you trim the nails and it may be difficult to hold them at the same time. So by associating the nail trims with something positive such as a special treat, receiving a new toy, or going for a walk, they may be more likely to hold still and not make as much of a fuss. Eventually they will realize that “Hey, these nail trims ain’t so bad!”

What Will You Need?

 

There are so many different types of clippers out there for cutting your pets nails, so how do you know which one will be right for you? Below is a picture of the different styles you can use. The most common types are scissor, plier and guillotine. The guillotine has a hole through which the nail will be placed, if this is the style of clipper you currently own, or would like to use, this article is very detailed in the process. As the name suggests, the scissor-type works like a pair of scissors and is most commonly used for cats, since their nails are so much smaller and easier to cut. Although preference differs, the most popular style here at LMVC is the plier style. We feel that you get better control and more precision than the guillotine, but it is truly whatever is more comfortable to you. Using a very small plier clipper is also suggested for cats.

 

Nail-trimmers

 

Once you’re ready to actually clip the nails, you will need some sort of clotting powder, just in case you cut the nail too short and the quick begins to bleed. An example that you can use is Kwik Stop Styptic Powder.

 

Where and how to trim?

 

If you’re dog or cat has clear nails, you’re one of the lucky ones! You should be able to quickly decipher where the quick is located by its pink coloring. You’ll want to cut the nail no closer than 2mm from the point. With dark nails, less is normally more. It’s suggested that you take little slivers off at a time until you get it to the correct length. As you get closer to the quick, you will see a gray or pink oval form in the center of the nail. This is when you will stop cutting.

Don’t forget to cut the dewclaws! These are the nails found typically on the front legs, but are found slightly higher up on the inside of the leg. Since they don’t touch the floor as your pet walks, they are never ground down and are typically the longest out of all the nails.

Hold the toe firmly in your hand and, if using the plier or scissor-type clippers, hold the clippers at a right angle. You will want to quickly close the handles to cut the nail. If you cut the nail too short and cut the quickly, the nail will begin to quickly bleed.  Apply your Quick Stop or other clotting powder to the quick (where you have just cut the nail) with your finger and apply some pressure to help aid in stopping the bleeding. This article also gives some great detail about how to hold and clip the nails.

If nail trimming at home still doesn’t seem to be working after all of these tips and tricks, then bring them in to a vet clinic or groomer to get their nails trimmed! You can request that they show you how to trim the nails if it would be easier for you to see it in person before trying it yourself!

This café located in River Oaks sounds like an oasis for dogs of all sizes! This place sounds great! Check out this review that someone left on their website:

 

“I needed to meet a prospective adopter. I was told that Barnaby’s was dog friendly so I thought I could give it a try. We went to Barnabys on Shepherd. A friend went early and secured a table in the shade. When I showed up with my Doberman in tow we were greeted by a very pleasant waiter who promptly brought water for me and a water bowl for my foster. Being June and hot I expected to be miserable while waiting for the adopter but with the large umbrellas and the very large fan it was quite pleasant. The waiter checked on us frequently. He brought my foster a doggie ice-cream which she thoroughly enjoyed. He quickly became her best friend and every time he pasted our table she would eagerly watch him. When the potential adopter showed up with his dog, a Doberman also, they got the same royal treatment. We ordered dinner and had a wonderful time chatting about dogs etc. There was a pug at the next table and a poodle across from us. The food was very good, the service was excellent and it was a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend it to anyone.”
