Dog mold allergy symptoms
Dog mold allergy symptoms are like a skin problem that occurs throughout the year. However, most mold-allergic dogs usually develop symptoms depending on the atmospheric humidity that allows molds to multiply faster, and they can be present throughout the year.
It is because the allergy is not seasonal like some pollen, but it is ever-present. Dogs aged between six months and three years are more likely to suffer from this allergy because they are curious and trying to master the environment around them. However, it can also affect dogs of any age.
In most cases, mold allergy in dogs tends to manifest as a skin problem. Symptoms may include inflamed and irritated skin, persistent scratching, generalized or localized hair loss, licking/chewing paws, or chronic ear infections.
In a few cases, mold can also lead to respiratory problems like sneezing, coughing, labored breathing, and wheezing. But in severe cases can result in loss of appetite and lethargy. Dogs that are allergic to molds are also allergic to other inhalant allergens like mites.
