Welcome to All City Pet Care East - A Sioux Falls Animal Hospital

Many dogs (and some cats) suffer from allergies, just like we do.

There are 4 common types of allergies in dogs, however many dogs with allergies have more than 1 type:

  1. 1. Flea - Allergic response from the saliva of the flea.  Typically localized to the tail base area and back legs.
  2. 2. Inhalant - Inhaled dust, molds or pollens cause generalized itching (face, feet, abdomen, armpits, etc).  Symptoms may be seasonal.  Can occasionally see respiratory issues in addition to itching.
  3. 3. Food - Most commonly a sensitivity to the protein in the food.  Can produce a variety of symptoms including itching and digestive issues.
  4. 4. Contact - Caused by direct contact with allergen such as a chemical, fabric, etc.  Irritation most commonly seen on feet & stomach.


Identifying and treating allergies can be difficult and frustrating due to the number and combinations of allergens they can react to.

The following is Allergy Test Results from one of our clients...can you see why it can be difficult?
