Skin problems, ear infections and allergies are among the most common reasons people bring their dogs and cats to a veterinarian. Caring for an itchy pet can be both emotionally and financially exhausting. Within two to three months, however, it is possible to control some of the common causes. Dr. Dunbar Gram, a veterinary dermatology specialist, talks about flea allergy and other types of allergies, including those that are food related or air-borne, how to tell the difference and when to call your veterinarian. He’ll also discuss current treatments, including allergy shots for airborne allergies and stringent flea control protocols for flea allergy.
