August is Itchy Pet Awareness Month! (Yes, that's a thing ) The “Awareness” part is very important, though — itchy dogs and cats might be telling you something about their health! Many pet owners don’t know that itchiness can often be a symptom of a problem that actually requires treatment...
Causes for chronic itching can range from food and/or environmental allergies to parasites or nutritional needs. Because of the constant scratching, secondary bacterial or fungal infections are frequently found during dermatologic exams, too.
These tend to take some time to develop, so the good news is that early intervention into the cause of the itch can prevent raw or infected skin.
The constant scratching is probably driving you nuts, but it doesn't compare to how aggravated your pet feels when they can't stop the itch. Call us so we can fix it!
