Atopic dermatitis in dogs is a chronic skin disease that is inflammatory. It is one of the most common types of skin allergies among dogs. The cause of atopic dermatitis is an allergic reaction to substances found in the environment. These can include grass, mold, or dust mites. Unfortunately, there is no treatment that will cure this form of dog allergies. However, you can use a treatment to alleviate the symptoms of atopic dermatitis, such as Cytopoint by Zoetis.
If your dog is suffering from skin allergies they will show visible signs of the condition. These include excessive scratching due to constant itching along with skin rashes. If they are experiencing allergic reactions in their paws they may commence to chewing their paws. Your canine may also suffer from watery eyes and sneezing caused by dog allergies.
The most common areas that atopic dermatitis is found are under the arms, in the groin, and around the muzzle. Your dog’s ears, wrists, and ankles may also present rashes due to dermatitis. This skin disease can also establish itself between your dog’s toes or around its eyes.

I can not say enough about these wonderful people. Dr. Reda is the most compassionate veterinarian I have ever met. My beloved dog passed from cancer, but they were there every step of the way with any questions or concerns, even when they were oh vacation and I was totally distraught about it, they made sure to address my concerns and never made me feel like I was crazy. There should be more people like Dr. Reda and his staff in this business. I am forever grateful for all of you.
