Itching and Scratching

Itching, scratching, chewing and licking are all normal behaviors for a dog, but if it becomes compulsive or if they hurt themselves in the process, you’ll want to address it with your vet.

There are many possible reasons for your dog’s itchiness, so paying attention to the frequency, severity and itchy spots on the body will help your veterinarian form a proper diagnosis. Keeping your dog comfortable with a few veterinarian-approved home remedies can help alleviate some of the itchiness in the meantime.
