Q. My dog is itchy, and her skin is irritated and pink.Had same issue exact time last year-I assume its seasonal allergies,- everyone is saying food al?
DR. LEIGH PUSATERI, DVM
A. If it is a seasonal problem than it probably is not a food allergy. Most food allergies do not have a seasonality to them. The best thing would be to have your dog examined by veterinarian to confirm that it is an allergy. Once a diagnosis is made your veterinarian can prescribe medication to help control the allergy ncluding antihistamines and/or corticosteroids.
