Dog scratching

Help Your Dog to Stop Scratching

When Lily was still a young whippersnapper, she suffered from such itchy skin that she stopped eating altogether. Henrietta tried everything under the sun before discovering that home cooked, nutritional meals brought Lily bounding back to full health.

Itchy skin is a very common problem in dogs, and can be caused by all sorts of things. As Lily found, a good diet is the best foundation for overall health, including healthy skin and fur. And while a change of diet cured Lily, there are all kinds of itchy skin remedies that may help your dog, depending on the cause.

Does your dog have bad skin?

Does my Dog have Itchy Skin?

Itchy skin can be caused by so many different things, from parasites to allergies, that it’s important to get a proper diagnosis from the vet. That way you can choose the correct treatment. If your dog has itchy skin, some symptoms are:

  • Regular scratching and licking of paws or parts of the body
  • Recurrent ear problems
  • Inflamed or cracked skin
  • Dandruff when you part the fur

Why is my Dog Scratching?

Dogs can itch and scratch due to many different reasons, some of the more common include:

  • Fleas or other parasites such as mites
  • Allergies to things like fleas or food stuffs. One common allergy, called Atopy, is triggered by house dust mites, grasses and pollens and other environmental allergens. True food allergies are quite uncommon and can include allergies to various meats or other proteins.

One of the most important dietary needs for a healthy, shiny, itch free skin and coat is high quality, digestible ingredients that are packed full of phytonutrients and essential fatty acids.

How to Help Your Pooch

Always talk to your vet before you make any changes to your dog’s diet.
