My Westie has allergies. I have had him allergy tested to environmental allergies and he tested positive (positive enough to include in the allergy shot...not even including everything he tested positive for at all) for 32/56 items tested for. He has food allergies as well, but those are harder to determine as a skin/blood test is not as accurate (according to the allergy doctor). His symptoms were GI upset (throwing up bile almost every morning), skin problems (looked like scabs down his back, and a different skin problem on his stomach eventually), and frequent licking of his front paws. A little hair loss, but it is more like hair thinning.
