Dog allergies is a diagnosis that covers many things. When your vet says your dog has allergies it's a way to explain a whole range of dog health problems, like dog rashes, dog itchy skin, dog hot spots, dog hair loss, chronic dermatitis, and more.
Any dog who has problems like these, is not a healthy dog. Bottom line! Dogs shouldn't have these problems at all. Dogs are having more allergic reactions than ever before and the canine allergies epidemic is getting worse, not better.
Let's look at the definition of Conundrum so you can see why I use that word to describe the dog allergy problem.

is the first thing to understand.
According to Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary:
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity to a substance or substances which, in like amounts, do not affect others.
In other words, your dog is reacting to substances which really shouldn't, under normal circumstances, bother him.
Remember these words ..." under normal circumstances ".
Dog allergies may be characterized by these symptoms.
Allergens are usually protein substances but, can be non organic things too, such as light, cold and heat. An allergen is any substance which causes an allergic reaction. Allergens can be the underlying cause of other dog health problems too. There are three main types of dog allergies.
Allergens cause inflammation.
Dog allergy reactions are the same as human allergy reactions. Dogs and people have an Immune System to help fend off invading allergens and pathogens. Our immune system should work to protect us. If this is not happening, it means the immune system...
So, here's the twist to the dog allergy story.
70 % of your dog's Immune System resides within his gut environment.
The allergy response therefore, is not the real problem. Your dog's allergies are the resulting build up of toxic influences that have:
You only noticed a problem when your dog started exhibiting outward symptoms. The symptoms you can see. The allergy symptoms will show up as inflammation either externally ( on the outside of the body such as a dog rash or an itching dog ) or internally ( on the inside of the body such as an inflamed irritable bowel causing diarrhea ).
The truth is, that the allergy problem started long before
that. The ' the twist ' to dog allergies lies deep inside your dog's gut microbiome.
So if you have an itching dog or any of the other dog allergy symptoms listed above, let's get back to more ' normal circumstances ', shall we? How do we do that?
Let's find out what happened to your dog's gut microbiome and the resulting effect on your dog's Immune System. That's where the interesting ' twist ' comes in. Find out where and how it all went wrong.
