If you're not sure whether a pooch has an issue like this, check out the following 10 signs of skin or allergy problems:

  • Constant paw licking
  • Rubbing body against objects/floor
  • Excessive scratching or chewing fur
  • Hair loss
  • Change in odor
  • Redness of fur and skin rashes
  • Flaky or greasy coat
  • Drippy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Increased sneezing and wheezing
