Humans are commonly affected by mold in their homes, so it stands to reason that their canine companions would be affected too. Dogs are not impacted in the same way that humans are. Their reactions tend to show up on their skin and in their ears. These allergies affect many dogs and are an indication that your home is infested with mold.
Itchiness Exhibited by Your Dog
Chewing or biting of the fur all over the body shows that the dog’s skin is aggravated. Dogs may also rub against furniture and other objects to relieve itchiness. The more a dog scratches and bites, the more likely their skin is to become inflamed and infected. Don’t wait a long time to take your dog to the veterinarian if you see them exhibiting these symptoms. First, treat your dog and then consider the possible mold problem in your home.
Ear Infections in Dogs
Most dog owners have experienced their pet at one time or another suffering from an ear infection. Many don’t know that ear infections in dogs can be caused by mold. The dog may even appear to be sick, showing symptoms such as wheezing, watery eyes, and sneezing. It is important to not diagnose the dog’s symptoms by yourself, take them to a trusted veterinarian who can run tests to determine what is going on with your pet.
Ventilate Your Home
Even after mold is removed from your home by professionals, you will need to keep it ventilated. Your dog needs a dry environment that isn’t too hot so that their skin can breathe and remain free from allergies. By keeping the conditions of your home dry and on the cooler side, you will prevent your family and pets from suffering the symptoms of a mold infestation.
