Sample text:

There is always an underlying reason why an animal is suffering from an allergy. It is more likely to occur in animals with a compromised immune system or those suffering from liver overload or toxicity. In a healthy animal the immune system should react to bacteria and viruses by producing antibodies to mount an immune response. If your dog has an allergy, then its immune system becomes over-active when exposed to the ‘allergic substance’ and will react as if it is a foreign invader. Dogs with allergies generally present with excessive scratching and/or licking paws. They may have dry and flaky skin, dull or greasy coat, redness, hot or cold skin, raised lumps, pimples, rash, scabby sores, dandruff, fur loss, hot spots, eczema or smelly coat. Others may show no skin lesions at all and have a perfectly healthy-looking coat but just scratch or lick constantly. Allergic animals may react to anything from fleas, grasses, weeds, shampoos, chemicals, chlorinated water, preservatives and commonly fed foods.

Symptoms often include: Itching mostly when resting or bored and may cease during activity
Licking paws, Recurring ear infections, Overactive immune system

The naturopathic approach to allergies is to determine what the animal is allergic to, and more importantly, why the animal has developed an allergy.

Allergies can be divided into two categories ~ environmental and food.

Environmental allergies can include pollens, dust, dust mites, chemicals, moulds, aerosol sprays, cleaning chemicals, paint, shampoo, bedding materials, carpets, plastic food and water bowls, cigarette smoke, grasses, ragwort, wandering jew and other plants, chemicals in water, flea products and fleas.

Symptoms often include: Itchy skin, Watery eyes, Respiratory symptoms, Red ears, face, paws, belly or genitalia

Food allergies are more likely to develop when animals are fed the same foods day in and day out.
