Havanese Care For Allergies - What You And Your Vet Can Do

May 28, 2008
Allergies effecting your Havanese can greatly impact on your dog's quality of life. In order to lessen the suffering time for allergies or any other serious aspect of Havanese care, you need to choose a vet for your Havanese before your dog gets ill. You need a regular vet and an emergency vet for when your regular vet is not available. You won't have much choice with an emergency vet, but you can choose your regular vet.

If your canine companion should contract one of the allergies effecting Havanese (which also effect most breeds of dogs), then you need to have a good relationship with your vet. You need your vet to give your dog a proper diagnosis, and you also need to be as accurate in your information as possible. Vets are very busy, so try not to take any hurriedness or inattention to you they show personally. They are focused on getting the right treatment for your Havanese as soon as possible, rest assured.

It is perfectly all right to ask your prospective veterinarian what kind of experience he or she has had with small dogs, and not just animals in general. Although the days of general veterinary practices are numbered, there are those vets out there who are still jack-of-all-trades.

Vets now specialize in "regular", exotic pets or livestock, and some specialize in cats or dogs. Some veterinary practices will have diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, and some won't.

A vet's education never ends - at least it shouldn't end. There should be times when the vet is off to conferences or classes on the latest veterinary techniques. Your regular vet should be able to provide you with an emergency vet's contact information if you were too lazy to get one before you brought you dog home. Havanese care isn't too difficult, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

If your Havanese starts scratching so bad they bleed or leave red, hairless spots, your dog probably is suffering from an allergy that can affect Havanese, which can affect other dogs, too. Havanese allergies are usually never contagious wither to humans or to other dogs. Your dog is most likely allergic to some sort of plant, a food ingredient or a chemical in laundry detergent or shampoos.

Your vet should be especially concerned about your Havanese' care. He or she will want to know about everything that touches your dog - where he plays, what plants are in where he plays, what medications are given and if he eats any of his toys.

The vet will most likely do a skin scrape and send it to a lab to help with allergy diagnosis. The vet may also ask you to put your Havanese on a bland diet of chicken and rice in order to determine if the dog has a food allergy.
