Top 3 Labradoodle Allergies and How to Treat Them

Allergies occur when a dog reacts to substances in their environment that are harmless to most other dogs. This is caused when the immune system works too hard.

Essentially a dogs body is attacking these harmless substances which releases histamines. This causes swelling, inflammation, and redness of the skin which causes your dog to itch and react.

Skin allergies are by far the most common dog allergy to detect, but are sometimes the most ambiguous to diagnose.
