Itchy puppy

November 20, 2017, 1:31 PM
Q: my new puppy is always biting or scratching himself, what should I do?
A: The most common cause of itching in puppies is dryness. The best way to handle this is to avoid frequent bathing if possible and to use a mild shampoo like aloe and oatmeal plus a leave on conditioner. Using a fatty acid supplement is a great long term plan. If you see redness, rash or scabs be sure to let me know.
