Anaphylaxis in dogs is a severe allergic reaction that can result in anaphylactic shock, respiratory or cardiac failure, or even death. The reaction can be localized to a certain part of the body or be more general and involve the shut down of major organs.
Allergic reactions in dogs can be difficult to spot, as they vary in type, severity, and cause. Almost any substance can trigger allergic reactions in dogs, though there are some allergens that are more common triggers than others.
