First off, we’re sorry. Having a dog thump the floor at 2 am is enough to get on anyone's nerves. Trust us, we’ve been there. At Dolittle's we address three main things to access itching: internal influences, external influences, and environmental influences.
By internal we mean anything your pet ingests. Food is often the easiest and least expensive way to address an itch. We recommend a diet with a simple ingredient list, and one that is rich in fish. Better still is raw food. To us, switching from one dry food to another dry food isn't radically different. Raw food is a significant change that can kick the itch.
External influences include anything that you put on your dog. This means shampoos, wipes, and even bedding. Our recommendations are to use chemical free, fragrance free everything. At least for a test period of 30 to 40 days.
