A Good Tip For Dogs With Itchy Skin

Now that summer is in full swing, many dogs are experiencing dry skin and excessive itchiness.

I know that my dog, “Forbes,” certainly has been! Of course, the first thing you’ll want to rule out is fleas.┬áBut barring fleas, I’ve found that the best way to alleviate itching is to:

The additional fat will give your dog’s coat a soft, shiny look and will help alleviate dry skin and itching.

You can also try an over-the-counter product you can get at most pet stores called, “Lipiderm,” which works pretty much the same, but costs a bit more.
