Imagine a terrible itch somewhere on your nose. It’s difficult to concentrate no matter how hard you try to forget the itch. Just like you, your dog can't resist scratching an itch. Scratching an itch is normal. But, an itch that leads to incessant scratching, licking, biting, and chewing is not normal. It can increase shedding, hair loss, open sores or wounds on skin sores, and other common skin issues in dogs.
While the eyes may be the window to the soul, your dog’s coat is a window to their health. It can indicate whether their nutritional needs are being met. As a responsible dog parent, you always want the best for your dog.
Don’t let skin issues get in the way of you and your dog bonding! Intense scratching for prolonged periods can exacerbate skin issues and undermine the health of your dog’s skin and shiny coat.
