Itching in dogs may require medical treatment. If you do not feel like giving chemicals to your pet, you can opt for the natural product remedies offered by Labo Demeter, if these can be used for his case.
Itching in dogs, not to be overlooked
Itching in dogs is a concern that should be considered with care as it can hide more serious ailments. It may indeed be more than flea bites. Also, when the animal scratches itself too much, other skin problems can occur.
Itching can cause pimples or pustules to appear, or vice versa. Either way, unwanted scratching can make the skin raw. The animal's coat may also fall off, revealing bare, injured skin. And if the pustules or small sores ooze or bleed, it is an open door to infections.
Therefore, it would be unwise not to pay attention to your dog if he spends most of his time scratching. If this has been going on for a few days and you have already got rid of its fleas, it is recommended that you take it to a vet to identify the source of the problem.
Does your dog have an allergy?
Itching in dogs results from a skin disorder caused by several factors. If your dog is scratching when he doesn't have fleas, he probably has an allergy. Consult a veterinarian at the first symptoms in order to diagnose and treat the pathologies responsible for these allergies. It could be atopic dermatitis, an allergy to flea bites, a food allergy or even contact.
Atopic dermatitis is caused by the hypersensitivity of the dog's skin to allergens found in the environment: pollens, mites, etc. Bite allergy or DAPP (Flea Allergy Dermatitis) is triggered by the saliva of a flea. This causes the dog to itch and leads to redness on the skin. As for food allergy, just one allergen in their diet can trigger itching in dogs. And finally, allergy can be caused by contact with allergenic products (make-up, household products, etc.) and leads to allergic dermatoses.
