Allergy Solution for Dogs: Natural and Conventional Therapies to Ease Discomfort and Enhance Your Dog's Quality of Life


The Allergy Solution for Dogs: Natural and Traditional Therapies to Ease Discomfort and Enhance Your Dog's Quality of Life

Excerpt
Glycoproteins

As with so many complementary therapies, there are a number of anecdotal reports showing that treating dogs with atopic dermatitis topically with glycoproteins (a sugar-protein molecule) produced relief from itching and inflammation. Research is needed to provide a better idea of just how glycoproteins work and how they are effective.

Aloe vera is the main source of a glycoprotein called acemannan. Look for either aloe vera or acemannan as an ingredient in shampoos and conditioners. It is in the brand that I prescribe for pets with atopic dermatitis, along with colloidal oatmeal, which is also well known for its topical anti-itching effect.
