Canine atopy can be difficult to distinguish from flea allergy dermatitis, scabies, demodectic mange, food allergies, and other skin diseases. The diagnosis can be suspected based on the history, location of skin lesions, and seasonal pattern of occurrence. Skin scrapings, bacterial and fungal cultures, skin biopsy and a trial hypoallergenic test diet should be considered before starting a course of treatment for atopy. It is important to treat and eliminate fleas as flea allergy dermatitis further complicates the condition.
