The Pug is a preferred breed, often chosen as pets as they are simple to groom and to take care of and can be susceptible to many different kinds of allergies. It is friendly although it can be quite stubborn at times. They require moderate exercise and appreciate lengthy walks. Nonetheless, care should be taken that it does not over-exert itself as it can be hard for them to cool down. Pugs get along well with youngsters and other animals.
If your Pug is suffering from allergies including severe itching, try bathing them in cool water. An oat meal bath is an excellent choice, but if you do not have any oatmeal bathing products, merely add oatmeal into an old tube-sock and add it in the bath water. Let it saturate for a minimum of 10 minutes prior to placing your puppy into the tub. Although it may not work as well, it will still provide some comfort to your pet. Baths are also good for pets who suffer from allergies in their paws. The paws have a substantial amount of capillaries near the surface of the skin. As a result, anything they step on is almost always absorbed into their body. After each stroll, tidy, and clean your puppy’s paws extensively and two to three times per week, saturate them in an oatmeal bath. Using medicated hair shampoos or lotions on your puppy’s dry or scratchy skin can also help to soothe your pet and make your pet less susceptible to allergies. Preventing allergies is easier than curing them. For more severe allergies, medications may be prescribed.

Approximately 10 % of all canine allergies are associated with food, and most food allergies are genetic. Food allergies often cause irritation and various other allergic reactions whereas food intolerance induces digestive tract disruptions such as looseness of the bowels, and vomiting. Most food allergies are induced by a protein particle. Food allergies can also present themselves as skin problems and/or intestinal upsets. Some canines can have persistent otitis (ear infections). The more direct the contact with the irritant the stronger the allergic reaction. The most typical food allergies include milk, beef, wheat or grain, chicken, egg, lamb, pork, soya, fish and rabbit. The Pug can also be allergic to more than one food type and elimination diets are the best way to determine the ingredient to which they are allergic to.
