Celiac Disease In Dogs

 

celiac Disease

Celiac disease is gluten intolerance in animals. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  Dogs, like humans, can suffer from celiac disease. By consuming products containing gluten an abnormal immune response occurs which attacks the small intestine. If Celiac Disease is left untreated it often leads to malnutrition and severe damage to your pups digestive system.

 

There are several signs that can indicate that your dog may have Celiac Disease. It is important that you are aware of the signs as early diagnosis is the always the best way to control any disease.

These signs include:

  • Skin problems
  • Hair loss
  • Bumps or lesions (These lesions usually show up on the dog’s feet, head, neck, ears and stomach)
  • Itching, flaking dry skin
  • Secondary skin infections
  • Chronic ear infections

 

If your dog shows any signs of being a Celiac then you should consult you vet immediately.
