Dog Allergy & Itch Products
When your pet begins to chew raw or hairless areas, particularly between his hip bones or down the rear of his legs, it is often a sign of a developing incurable skin condition caused by flea bites. Advanced cases of flea allergy often require steroidal injections which, while providing relief can be quite damaging to your pet over the long run. While complete protection from flea bites is the only real solution, some immediate relief from the itchy symptoms comes in the form of sulfer, oatmeal, coal-tar, and hydrocortisone shampoos and sprays.
Food allergies include wheat, beef and many other frequently-used ingredients in most dog foods. Because dogs often eat the same diet for months or years at a time, they can become hyper-sensitive to the ingredients or the additives. Change diets frequently, feed natural, hypo-allergenic foods and treats, and use some of the coat-enhancing supplements found here to strengthen his hair coat and moisten his skin.
