Allergies?

Hello,

I've been dealing with allergies with my girl for mooonnttths (and she's only 20 months old). We've done an allergy panel and she's not eating any of the foods that showed as triggers on her results. She's raw fed and all her treats are single ingredients. No chicken in her diet. She got a Cytopoint injection (allergy shot) at the vet back in May when her paws also looked liked this and it cleared up and hasn't been an issue until about 2-3 weeks ago.

We're in CA and the weather has recently dropped and we had a lot of wind so I'm guessing the wind probably blew all the pollen and whatnot in the air and caused this reaction again. I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with this and what has worked? I'm wondering if I should take her to see a dermatologist or would allergy injections be a forever kind of thing here on out?

Dermatologist +++ full thyroid panel sent out to a good lab like Michigan State NOT done in-house in the vet clinic. Hypothyroidism is rampant in this breed and multiple skin problems are often a symptom. Low normal readings are NOT normal for Dobermans. There are some good threads on here about the issue. Just make sure he doesn’t have that going on as you won’t be able to solve skin problems in the presence of thyroid issues. Keep us posted!

Yep we’ve done the full thyroid panel and she is hypothyroid. She was diagnosed back in June and she’s on 0.6mg twice a day. We sent the bloodwork to Hemopet and Dr. Jean Dodd read and reviewed the results for us. We had her retested after starting meds last month and her thyroid levels were good on the current medications!

All this skin issues started after her being on meds and not sure if it’s her thyroid levels going crazy again or what...

Allergy testing - especially for environmental. Go to a dermatologist, they will do a series of allergy tests on the skin. You can find more tips on Pet Express
