Spring time – the allergy situation has drastically changed

The pollen season and loosing coat

Loosing coat has been the worst time ever for Kumi because her skin and fur become dry and exposed to pollen.

The worst parts this time are not (as usually) the armpits and between her back-legs but in the forehead, on the back and around the bum all the way to the tail.  Then add to that , her claws scratching and her teeth nagging the skin – which sometimes makes the skin bloody.

Her paws have actually been better this year compared to other years the same time apart from some individual outbreak near the the claws. Her fur between the pads has been clean and dry in a good way.

I had to give her Cortison tablets this time though local treatment (which I usually tru to use) is no good for these symptoms.

I tested to shampoo her (Malaseb) to avoid bacteria and fungi infections. After that I really need to give her some moisturizing local. That I have left to solve.

Otherwise I give her linseed oil in her food.


We are now longing for the time when her fur is coming back.

My name is Lina Johansson and I live in Sweden. I have had Akitas since the year 2006. At the moment I own three Akitas - Ninjo, Kumi and Naomi. I am very found of Akitas and I really want them to be a healthy and great family member. Why not also in the future a dog that you can use for tracking, hunting, guarding or any other useful work! That will make them even more valuable for us! Let us work together! Kind regards Lina
