WHY DOES MY DOG ITCH SO MUCH?

 

There are lots of reasons why your four-pawed friend may be itching. It could be that your dog is allergic to food, or fleas, or even ingredients in commonly used products like shampoo. It could also be atopic dermatitis, an inflammatory skin disease associated with allergies to pollens, molds, and dust mites.

No matter what allergies are causing your dog’s itch, it can be irritating and disruptive. You just want to help your dog.

You may have tried to calm the itch with home remedies such as oatmeal baths or over-the-counter topical medicines. But even though these remedies may provide some temporary relief from that annoying itch, they don’t really get to the underlying cause.
