Now, let’s discuss the most common Rottweiler allergies because that would help us understand and protect our Rotties from such allergies.

Food As A Source Of Rottweiler Allergies

It is quite unfortunate that Rottweilers have a sensitive stomach to begin with, which gets worse with allergies. The main catalysts of Rottweiler allergies through food involve the constituent ingredients in many dog foods. Stuff like turkey, ground beef, chicken, and animal fat can lead to allergies, which would, in turn, lead to gastrointestinal problems, ear odor, chronic diarrhea, chronic gas, etc. One can understand that their dog is having a negative reaction from the food they eat through any of the above symptoms. And if it is, contact your vet to see what changes can be brought forth in the diet of your Rottweiler.

Rottweiler Allergies From Smell

Rottweilers and humans both suffer from inhalant allergies, just that your Rottweiler can’t exactly tell you what they have a problem with. It is up to you to see what you can do to lessen the symptoms which would be sneezing, wheezing or coughing. You need to make sure that the source of irritation is removed- which will allow the Rottweiler to feel normal. Also, you must bring your Rottweiler indoors the moment allergies kick in, and consult a vet immediately.

Skin Allergies

Rottweilers generally have sensitive skin so if you see your dog’s skin turn red or botchy, it is definitely a reaction to allergens. The most common Rottweiler allergies involve dust particles that emanate after a thorough cleaning. This dust settles on the dog’s skin which leads to them reacting heavily against. This causes the Rottweiler immense discomfort as they try to shake it off their body- an attempt that involves biting their own skin to relieve some of the pain. In this case, try to keep a note of the things your Rottweiler comes in contact with.
