Abstract

A dog with allergic inhalant dermatitis presents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the veterinarian. The patient exhibits intense pruritus often accompanied by scratching, foot licking, face rubbing, sneezing, and lacrimation. The occurrence of signs is often seasonal and is usually first seen in the second or theird year. Allergic inhalant dermatitis is an immediate type of allergic hypersensitivity mediated by the skin sensitizing antigen, IgE.
