Thanks for visiting Allergy Dog Central. I’m Kathy, the lead writer for this site. I am not a veterinarian and would never claim to be one. I am simply a dog owner who has a very allergic dog.
My boxer dog, Elsie started to exhibit allergy symptoms when she was a puppy. By the time she was two years old, my family was spending over $2,000 a year on allergy treatments and vet visits. We were spending money like crazy yet her health was continuing to deteriorate. Faced with the possibility of not being able to afford our dog, I took to the Internet and tried to figure out how we could “fix” our sick dog.
After much trial and error and the help of a great Veterinary Dermatologist, Elsie is finally living a normal dog life – and our finances have been saved! Since no two dogs are the same, I wanted to share what I know and continue to learn from others. Although there is no magic solution for dog allergies, there are ways to keep them under control.
Thanks again for stopping by.
P.S. Please consult with your veterinarian before making any changes in your dog’s diet or medical treatments.
