Allergy CARE Options


       
 
Every day, Veterinarians see the Health and Behavioral ravages caused by a Pet’s Immune System being Out-of-Balance.

     Constant chewing on their feet, rubbing their face on carpet, scratching of the body, recurrent ear infections, hair loss, G.I. issues and mutilated skin are all symptoms of an immune system that is losing its battle against viral and bacterial health threats and everyday environment sources such as Pollens, Dust Mites, Mold.
   

       To make matters worse, these symptomatic behaviors often lead to a Slippery Slope of further and cumulative secondary health issues (i.e. Itching / Open Wounds / Infection because Immune System suppressed via Anti-Itch Meds ) which all adds up to a Sad Dog and a Sad Pet Parent.
   

       One of the most common causes of immune system imbalance, with the resulting symptoms, relates directly to the immune system’s "misdirected" immune response against sources in your pet’s environment that are really harmless. In essence, your pet’s immune system "Thinks" that these harmless sources are actually health attackers, and in turn attacks them with relentless ferocity. This misdirected immune response to a harmless source is called an Allergy.
   

       Allergies are an incredibly common, and frustrating, problem in Pet Dogs. Unlike humans, respiratory manifestations of environmental allergies are not usually very noticeable. Dogs with allergies get itchy skin, and they scratch like crazy as a result. The underlying inflammation and
 the scratching both lead to secondary infections, especially of the Ears and Skin.   
   

       Dogs with Allergy Symptoms usually start to develop between one and three years of age. They may start as late as age 6 or 8, but over 80% start earlier. To make matters worse, as the animal ages, it usually develops allergies to additional things and the response to any one source becomes even more severe.

Summary of Allergy CARE Options

Care Options

Points of Consideration

Avoidance Avoidance of the offending allergens is, theoretically, the best solution. But in most cases, this turns out to be impossible.
Steroids Steroids are very effective for quick, symptomatic relief of itching and inflammation. However, the drawback is that they can have numerous and frequent short- and long-term side effects on the dog. In other words, steroids can compromise, or crash, your pet’s natural immune system.

Common corticosteroid drugs used to treat skin issues in dogs include methylprednisolone (DepoMedrol TM), triamcinolone (Vetalog TM), prednisolone and prednisone. These compounds reduce itching by reducing inflammation. In other words, these drugs treat the symptom of itching, but can do nothing about the underlying cause of the itch.

Unfortunately, they also affect every organ in the body.

Whether a dog has hot spots, mange or allergies, often it’s the secondary infections that cause the worst itching. If steroids are given to treat the symptoms of itching, the bacterial or fungal secondary infections will be given a boost, and will get much worse very quickly. The reason for this is that corticosteroids depress lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, making it easier for bacterial infections to occur and then to proliferate unchecked.

In other words, steroids can compromise, or crash, your pet’s natural immune system.

Steroids may be prescribed by veterinarians, but they are not actually effective in reversing allergic dermatitis. They can even worsen the condition. Once allergic dermatitis persists, it may already be infected by bacteria. Since steroids have cortisone, a substance that can inhibit the production of lymphocytes, it prevents the immune system of dogs to naturally fight the bacterial infection. In that case, steroids may only allow the infection to develop.
Antihistamines Inexpensive Antihistamines may help control itching, especially in conjunction with other treatments. However, since dogs respond differently to different antihistamines, several types may have to be prescribed before an effective one is found. They may make dogs drowsy. Efficacy 0 – 30 %
Fatty Acids Fatty acids are a "natural" product with some anti-inflammatory properties. They are used as feeding supplements and may be useful as a complementary treatment. They may help to improve the skin & coat but again they only address the symptoms. Efficacy: Approximately 25%
Topical Therapy Topical therapy, consisting of shampoos, rinses and topical anti-itch solutions. They may work well at relieving the itching by reducing the allergen contact with the skin. They offer localized, varying, short-term relief and frequent shampooing may be inconvenient for pet owners.
Cyclosporine capsules A new generation of oral medications specifically developed to control symptoms of atopic dermatitis. Selective immunomodulating properties provides symptomatic control without the systemic adverse effects commonly seen with traditional Corticosteroid therapy. They are expensive and require multiple veterinarian visits to monitor the pet. The duration of relief the pet experiences varies and readministration is required when symptoms return.
Immunotherapy Immunotherapy targets and neutralizes the source of disease. It is 75 – 85% successful. Desensitization, also called immunotherapy, requires identifying the offending allergen. A series of shots are then administered over a lengthy period of time to "desensitize" the dog to the offending allergen. When effective, this therapy is a valid option, but unfortunately, not all dogs respond to it and close monitoring required. It may take 6 to 12 months to begin signs of improvement.
