The first thing I do, when I notice that my dog is itching, is increase the omega 3 fatty acids. Specifically the “DHA” as well as the “EPA”. I recommend adding fish oil to the dog’s food and eliminating any kind of grain or corn. Food coloring should also be avoided/eliminated. Some dogs may also be sensitive to chicken as a protein. Of course, there are other sources for allergies, such as mites or other environmental factors. It’s important to observe and maybe even keep a log on your dog’s skin issues. Do they occur at certain times during the year? Has anything in their environment changed? Also, beware of excessive itching, because it can lead to broken skin, which can lead to a secondary infection.
