5 Reasons Your Dog Might be Itching Excessively

We want to keep our dogs as comfortable and happy as possible, which is why we worry when they seem to constantly be scratching, shaking or even gnawing at their skin at all hours of the day. While some itching is perfectly normal, excessive itching can be dangerous for your dog and is usually indicative of a larger problem.

You've Found a Tick on Your Dog... Now What?

Warmer weather means more walks, hikes and playtime outside with your beloved pup. Unfortunately, the dawn of spring also means that bugs are also outside.

You and your pooch will likely be spending a lot of time outdoors while the weather is warm this spring. Unfortunately, warmer weather also means a great number of insects like bees and mosquitos will begin to make your backyard, nearby parks and wilderness areas their home. Dogs are curious by nature and will try to sniff around, but this curiosity may come back to bite them—literally. While outside this spring and summer, it’s important to be mindful of the insects that can cause your dog harm.

Springtime Grooming is a Great Way to Combat Dog Skin Allergies

Springtime is the season of itching for many dogs. Between atopic and contact allergies, fleas and ticks, and a whole slew of other irritants, many dogs spend the spring months scratching vigorously to quell persistent itching.

Keeping Your Dog Exercised and Energized in the Face of Seasonal Allergies

On days when the pollen count is high or there’s a strong wind whipping up the ragweed, we tend to stay indoors, away from the histamines.
