Pug allergies are a major concern for pug owners. Allergies will typically fall under food allergies or environmental allergies. In the environment allergies to grass (lawns, etc) can be common; pesticides and other toxins can be factors, yet fleas (as well as other insects) are a major pug allergy. Many times the allergies are hard to pinpoint as they could be multiple including "hereditary". Because of over-breeding or breeding pugs with known health issues, a pug puppy could already have allergy issues.
Without an extensive budget for tests, an owner needs to have a lot of patience and start methodically, tackling eitheir the food or the environment first. Using non-toxic remedies for skin soothing, flea prevention are very useful. For example, bathing the pup in room temperature water, mild shampoo or tea-tree oil based shampoo is essential as well as treating the skin with the tea-tree oil after the bath. Grooming it with a flea comb (it is specific) and eliminating fleas in all the house and yard is imperative in eliminating pug allergies.
Pug food allergies can be a worrisome issue for the owners too. So many dogs are suffering health issues from poor nutrition; and no wonder, most commercial dog food contains a multitude of unhealthy and allergy-causing ingredients.
For example, if your pup is itching it could very well be a pug food allergy--the diet/food it is eating. Other factors could be environmental and genetic. However, It is very clear, based on several sources, that the main pug food allergies were 1) Beef, 2) Diary, 3) Wheat. Soy and Corn are also on the list.
According to Wikipedia, "food allergies account for about 10% of all the allergies seen in dogs, being the most common cause after flea bite allergies and atopy (inhalant allergies). Food allergies generally account for 20% of the causes of itching and scratching in dogs". So, if you have eliminated fleas on and off the pug, it is a good probabality pug food allergies are present if it is showing symptons.
The most recent fad of "grain-free" dog food is a sign that dog owners are aware that grain could be a cause of their dog's food sensitivity; but the truth is that not all grain is on the list of allergens. If you suspect pug food allergies, do not assume it is the grain.
Most common pug allergies have to do with their food. Most informed pug owners will tell you to read the label on the dog food when you ask about treating pug allergies. Many major pet food brands still contain very unhealthy ingredients, all the way from parts of animal products that no dog should eat to chemicals that can cause your pug allergies.
If you are to address health issues one must start with the food. Look for food that is natural, not processed, with few ingredients, something that you would eat on a daily basis. We do not eat the same thing every day, neither should a pug. The different formulas of California Gold Small Dog Pet Food offer to relieve pug allergies with this method of alternating food sources.
