Chemicals and additives can be found in the air that we breathe and a large amount of the food that we eat. It’s hard to avoid environmental toxins from pesticides and traffic pollution and preservatives in food. These toxins can also have a negative affect on our dog which can cause sensitivities.
Some sensitivities in dogs can appear out of nowhere but may have built up over time. Common sensitivities most often result from an immune overreaction to environmental toxins but can include fleas, mites, seasonal pollens, fungi and numerous others which cause your dog to itch, bite and scratch. Most commercial dog foods contain additives and preservatives with very little levels of nutrients and balanced essential fatty acids. Symptoms of a food sensitivity are scratching and itching of the ears and paws and a poor digestive system.
As with any of the above sensitivities, it is important to find the trigger and avoid or eliminate it to offer relief. In some cases, such as house dust mites, this avoidance may be impossible. Medication is sometimes necessary to help but not a long term solution as it can cause other health problems.
