Dogs are adorable creatures only when they behave properly. Not every dog is well-behaved. Some dogs eat their poops, while others lick their skin, coat with their tongue. The misbehavior of dogs in these ways are not due to their mannerism or some other factor; they are due to lack or nutrition or itching in their skin, coat.
Some dogs may be allergic to a certain set of ingredients. Not all the dogs are toxic to lactose products, but some even die on taking small amounts. The allergies in dogs purely depend on the individual’s health conditions.

It’s better to seek your vet’s help if you suspect that your dog has an allergy. Your vet may confirm the cause, and then you can follow the medications, diet plans as per the vet’s instructions.
