The symptoms and signs to look out for, what the causes of itchy dog skin could be, and then follow which natural skin treatment has worked out for the best in each case.

Karen and Dot – Urticaria and Pet Shop Treats – Part II

My other dog, Dot, gets episodes of urticaria over her head & shoulders & definitely improved when changed to a Fish4Dogs diet (perhaps the fish oil). However, recent urate crystals in her urine has meant changing to a diet lower in purines & she’s now on Burns Fish & Maize – skin doesn't seem to have got worse with this change.

Karen and Pebble – Red, Inflamed, Sticky, Itchy Skin – Part I

Please read all of this blog post. I know it's long (I've even divided it up into two posts) but the story Karen tells is one which I know will be familiar to many of you. She has a lot of great tips plus the answers she's discovered along the way, which will help many of you. Mostly common sense, that's really useful and free.

Cara's Itchy Face Sorted... Almost

Our dog Cara was very itchy when we first got her (as an 18 month-old rescue) and switching her to a hypoallergenic food really helped her body scratching and slight dandruff, however, she still has a very itchy face which we have found no answer to. She gets allergies in the summer (wheezing and sneezing) but her face is always itchy.

David and Tilly’s Story

Tilly, our Jack Russell Terrier, was just under four years old when I accepted a two-year posting to the Middle East. Before relocating, Tilly was as fit as a fiddle and enjoyed life to the full. But within three months of settling in to our new home, she became ill.
