Use topical sprays and a moisturizing shampoo to quickly relieve redness, inflammation, and itching of the skin.
Even though fleas may not be the current cause of your pet's itching, it's always best to protect your dog or cat from these parasites. Plus, some flea medications also protect against other insects like mosquitoes and ticks which can contract Lyme disease and heartworms. (See product labeling for specifications.)
Allergic reactions to the environment may also be a cause for your pet's itching. If this is the case, your veterinarian may recommend giving your pet an antihistamine to reduce itching symptoms.
Some pets may also itch due to allergic reactions to the type of food they eat. Many commercial pet foods lack essential fatty acids that help maintain skin and coat health. Consider supplementing your pet's daily diet with Omega 3 to restore your pet's shiny coat and help reduce inflammation of the skin. (Note: If your pet is allergic to fish, please do not give your pet any Omega 3 supplement.)
