Common Pet Skin Condition

Dog, Pet: Allergic Contact Dermatitis
A pet allergy is a term that represents a reaction to a irritating substance (allergen) by a select group of people and does not effect others who are not allergic to it. Only small quantities of an allergen are necessary to create a allergic reaction. Contact allergic dermatitis usually occurs when a allergen comes in contact with
the pet's skin rather than internally produced. The first contact does not always result in a allergic reaction; often the pet has been able to come in contact with the irritant without an adverse reaction.

Allergic contact dermatitis is an itchy skin condition caused by an allergic reaction to a substance or material in contact with the skin. It typically reacts several hours after contact with irritant and calms down over some days assuming the skin is no longer in contact with it.

Allergic contact dermatitis is different from irritant contact dermatitis caused by skin contact with irritating substances. Common irritants include soaps, detergents, solvents, acids, alkalies, and other chemicals. Irritant contact dermatitis can affect anyone, assuming they have had enough exposure to the irritant.

Dog, Pet: Dermatitis Symptoms

Dermatitis is generally restricted to the area of contact with the allergic substance, however severe cases may become generalized beyond the original contact area. Allergic irritants, like poison ivy or oak can be spread to other areas of the body by touch. It is unlikely that dermatitis exists if the affected skin area is not reactive to an known irritant. Affected areas will be red, swollen, blistered, dry, bumpy, or itchy.

  • Reaction to plants: grass, shrubs, poison oak, ivy, sumac..
  • Reaction to home furnishing materials: carpets, blankets, or bedding.
