Even well-controlled allergy patients are expected to have occasional flares of their itching when they are inevitably exposed to suddenly higher levels of some of their triggers (pollen or grass in Spring/Fall, fleas, household cleaners causing contact dermatitis, foods the pet is allergic to, etc).
Now that you know allergies are an issue, how do you know if your pet is itching?! Tell-tale signs of an itchy dog aren't all as obvious as you may think! Most pet owners think that if their dog isn't scratching themselves, they're not itchy.
We see itchy dogs COUNTLESS times a day, and itchy kitties
about a few times a week. Itchy pets, just like itchy people, need some
diagnostic tests and some trial-and-error to get their treatments right.
