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 ALLERGIESPug 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. Most of the symptoms show up on the skin (rash, constant scratching, etc).
NOTE: If your pug is experiencing severe reactions, diarrhea, vomiting, discontinue your existing pet food immediately. Have it drink plenty of water and when settled only feed it a small amount of natural food as in boiled potatoe and rice for a few days. In the meantime order samples of our natural, healthy food for pugs with allergies , they should arrive in 3 or so days. Do not buy another commercial processed food or you can make your pug more ill.
If you believe in giving your pug nutrition where it can thrive, be the healthiest, then look into the food that your are givng them; if it looks like and taste like something you wouldn't eat yourself then try real food, be it from the produce, health, grocery store or pet food with real ingredients from nature. If you would like to try "Pugzoo's California Gold Small Dog Pet Food" we would love to send you samples.
NOTE: Since Jan. 2020 to-date there have been 113 recalls/withdrawals of pet food. For the details, including reason for recall (mostly Salmonella) see FDA's list here.
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 (skin irritants)". 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.

PUG FOOD ALLERGIES
Pugs with Skin Allergies
The most common allergy found in pugs is the reaction on the skin; this is shown by the constant, incessant itch that makes the pug scratch its skin. Not to be confused with a reaction to fleas with can also cause a skin allergy, the food allergy is internal, by eating dog food that the body is rejecting.
After years of breeding pugs that have been fed the same food, the breed will --and has--rejected the food that was used over dozens of years. This will show up as skin allergies.This dog food is mostly processed, canned and subjected to heat and all sorts of elements which is unhealth to start with, but the fact that it contains the same formula over this enormous time is what causes the allergy to this dog food. Short of spending thousands on allergy tests (which is recommended if you have the funds and trust the clinic/company) one has to go through eliminating the culprit food. This is where a whole food with few ingredients and where you control the ingredients -- especially the meat--is going to be very rewarding, if not extremely stress relieving for you and your pug.
