Allergy problem??

Just got my puppy about a week ago, and i have been getting this allergic reaction on my hands and arms every time he licks me. I have had GSDs in the past and never had this occur. The only difference I can think of is this puppy eats raw and my previous dogs did not. Could this be why? Could I have just suddenly become allergic to their saliva? Any advice or input would be great !

Thanks.

What raw foods is your puppy eating? Perhaps you are allergic to what is in the raw ingredients. I dont think you can be allergic to their saliva. Keep in mind too that allergies can suddenly appear. Although you didn't have a dog allergy in the past doesn't mean you cant have one now.

Yes, it is possible for allergies to suddenly start up. It also could be something he is eating.

it sounds like whatever he has on his tongue is giving you the reaction.

Gosh what a horrible thing for a dog lover to be allergic too!

I know a certain dog in daycare at my work causes this type of reaction when she licks a few of the staff. I don't get the reaction but at least 2 people do and it is only to this dog that they have this reaction. Weird!
