Allergies and skin problems are common and problematic. Flea & mite bites, pollens, fungi etc can cause your dog to itch, scratch, have rashes and dry or inflamed skin. In addition, most types of commercial dog foods lack essential fatty acids (polyunsaturated fats omega-3 & 6) which can cause excessively dry skin and a dull coat.
Allergies are a result of your dogs immune system overreacting to the allergen, causing inflammation and itching. It is critical to get to the root of the problem. Check for bacterial & fungal (yeast) infections, parasites or sensitivities to different pollens or other environmental allergens. Some skin problems can be the result of digestive dysfunction so ensure that your dog’s diet is species appropriate and that their gut is healthy and strong. For yeast infections we recommend a combination of our Liver Love to detox and Tummy Tastic to rebuild gut health.
As with any allergy, it is important to find the trigger and avoid or eliminate it where possible, whether environmental or food. In some cases, such as house dust mites, this avoidance may be impossible. Medication is sometimes necessary for immediate relief but for some is not a long term solution due to possible side effects and toxic build up.
Aside of allergies, it may be that your dog moults excessively, struggles to regain their coat after shedding or has lost their colour pigment over time. Certain breeds are more prone to these problems.
