Manage Your Dog's Itching Caused By Allergies

Allergies in dogs may be triggered by food or the environment (dust mites or pollen) and can cause persistent itching. If left untreated, your dog is likely to develop chronic ear infections, hot spots, or other skin infections, which can cause the skin to have a strong odor.

Relieve your dog's itching

Use topical sprays to instantly relieve redness, inflammation, and itching of the skin.

Soothe skin with a moisturizing shampoo

Wash your dog with a shampoo formulated for flaking and itching that may be a result of skin allergies.

Clean your dog's ears regularly

Persistent itching and scratching from allergies can lead to chronic ear infections. Regularly cleaning your dog's ears can prevent yeast and bacteria buildup.

Feed your dog a diet with omega 3

Some dogs may itch due to the type of food they eat. Many commercial pet foods lack essential fatty acids that help with skin and coat health. Consider a brand of pet food with natural ingredients and Omega 3, or supplement your dog's diet with a daily vitamin supplement.

For severe cases of skin allergies, your veterinarian may prescribe a corticosteroid for your dog.
