My Dog Is Itchy. Why? And What Can I Do?

Dalmatian hug

So your dog is itchy all the time? Persistent redness or rash? Constant ear infections? Even if it’s just occasional, or only seasonal, you’ve come to the right place.

I am a veterinary nurse, working in a small animal skin clinic, and so I’d like to think I know a thing or two about skin by now.

I truly want to help you get to the bottom of your dog’s itchy skin issue if I can.

Why I’ve Decided To Write This Post

I’ve read too many articles like, ‘My dog is itchy all the time’ and ‘How coconut oil will solve your dog’s itchy skin issue’.

I’m sorry but, no coconut oil likely won’t fix a dog’s skin issue, and neither will Tumeric! It might help but it is not going to fix the cause.

dog skin conditions

My Dog Is Itchy All The Time Help! Right enough chit chat lets get to it!


Why is my dog itchy? Well, this post isn’t going to solve that question straight away, and neither will searching Dr. Google.

However, I hope that this post will encourage you to start the process, In finding the CAUSE of your fur babies itchy skin and then ultimately solving the issues.

Lets Answer Some Common Questions:

How can I get my dog to stop scratching?

Find the cause of there itchy skin. Take your dog to the vet and start a plan on finding out what is causing your dog to itch.

Your vet will have many medical options to help give your dog relief immediately. However, finding the cause of the itch is key.

What causes severe itching in dogs?

Skin is very diverse there are so many reasons why.
Some examples of severe itching are food, environmental, and flea allergies.

However, many other medical conditions can cause itchy skin, please always take your animal to a vet and find the cause of their itchy skin.

What can I give my dog for itchy skin?

Your Vet has many medications and topical treatments for various skin conditions. Itchy Skin management is very possible, curing chronic skin conditions completely can be tricky.

Please always take your pet and their itchy skin to your vet.

Sometimes There Is No Cure, skin Can Be Tricky, But It Can Be Managed Well.

Take My Itchy Dog Skin Quiz
9 Questions To Help You Find The Cause Of Your Dogs Skin Problem.

Skin disease in dogs is so diverse and there truly are many reasons why your dog could be itchy!
Yes, some are easyish and others are not.

I’m talking about the not so easy cases in this post.
Eg: they have had more than one flare, and have already tried a few different options only to have the issues return.

I’m sorry, this isn’t likely going to be solved overnight, or by one Vet clinic visit. I wish it could.

Problem skin can be stressful, owners feel like they have already spent a small fortune, and watching their itchy fur baby tear themselves apart again! Is not fun!

We are empathetic this is happening.
It sucks! We understand and truly want to help you.

Women massaging dogs skin

How can I start finding the cause to my dogs itchy skin then?

Go to see a vet! Be ready to ask some questions.

Tell them you want to go further into this and find the cause.
Be aware skin cases take time. So prepare to be patient.

Remember, time-wise your vet is like your GP, they typically get 15mins with you and your dog. Before the next client and patient are waiting to see them.

Most Owners are expecting a vet to solve the dog’s skin issue in that 15mins. Unfortunately, this is not always realistic, especially with more complicated skin diseases.

Cute Husky with owners hands

Ask Them For A Referal To A Skin Clinic.

If it’s needed, a vet will offer you a referral to an animal dermatology clinic, like the one where I work.

But You can always ask for one or jump on the internet to see if there is one in your area.

I can not recommend a Derm Clinic more,
We are focused solely on that niche so it is a great option

However, not everyone’s budget can afford referral to a derm clinic.

In conculusion

When you started reading this, you were probably hoping for some magical fix and I’m so sorry I can’t give you that.

I would love nothing more than for coconut oil or turmeric to be the answer but unfortunately, it’s not!

You should check out these posts as they are all things that work towards finding the CAUSE of the itch!

Moving With Pets Is Difficult, 6 Great Tips Make It Easy

Moving with pets, if they have never had to leave home before it could be an ordeal for them. Here are some tips to help you get your pet ready for moving day.

Moving with pets

Pets can be stressed over moving just like people. How can you tell? Your pet may refuse to eat or be more nippy than usual to you and others.

Recognize these signs and try to keep your pet calm. Take breaks and play with them. Leave their belongings until last in your packing so they can have something familiar around them.

Here are some more tips to help you go from point A to point B, when moving with pets.

Moving With Pets Tip #1 –
Change Identification

You will have a new address and your pet’s collar (if applicable) needs to reflect that. If they getaway at a stop or run loose as you haul boxes in at your new place, you want those who find him to be able to find you. Include your cell phone number.

Moving With Pets Tip #2 –
Buy A Pet Carrier

You will have a new address and your pet’s collar (if applicable) needs to reflect that. If they getaway at a stop or run loose as you haul boxes in at your new place, you want those who find him to be able to find you. Include your cell phone number.

Moving With Pets Tip #3 –
Visit or Talk With Your Vet

Some pets get motion sick. If your pet has never left home you might not be sure, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Get medication for it just in case. The vet can also suggest ways to calm your pet on long rides.

Moving With Pets Tip #4 –
Make frequent stops on the trip

Pets can get just as restless as children. Make regular stops at rest areas to stretch your legs and to give your pet a bathroom break. They can work off some nervous energy from being pent up in the car.

Moving With Pets Tip #5 –
Keep them comfortable

Put a familiar blanket and toy in the pet carrier so your pet will feel at home. Look in the door so that they can also see that you are still with him.

Moving With Pets Tip #6 –
Plan your sleeping arrangements on the trip.

All hotels are not “pet friendly.” Find areas where you can keep your pet with you in the room.

This way you don’t have to drive all night or leave your pet in the car overnight. In hot areas, pets have been known to die from heat exhaustion in cars.

Keep pet safe as you move – Tie your pet up in the yard or on the porch while you move in. Afterward, let them walk around the house and get comfortable with their new surroundings.

That concludes Moving with pets.

Tips and tricks on how to train your puppy to sit in minutes.

how to train your puppy
how to train your puppy

Training your new fur baby to sit is easy, with the right technique.
Check out my tips and tricks on how to train your puppy to sit in minutes.

Things to have prepared:

1. Yummy treats – You need to figure out what treat gets your puppy willing to do anything.

Some suggestions to try are small amounts of cheese, meat, cooked pumpkin and apple.


Finding the best treat makes this so much easier.
Don’t try any training with a treat your puppy isn’t really that interested in.

Dog sitting with owners

How to train your puppy #2

2. A nice quiet calm environment to train your puppy.
Its no use going outside where your puppy will be playing with leaves sticks and bugs.

Pick a plain room in your house and remove toys and distractions before starting to train your puppy.
You want all your puppies attention and focus.


3, Check your puppy is in the right mood.
Like the environment, we need your puppy to be in the right mind frame too.


So, don’t wake your puppy from their nap, or attempt to train them right after you’ve been playing heaps of fun games and they are all hyperactive.
Instead, give it a go after you’ve taken them for a short walk and they’re reasonably calm.

Tips and tricks on how to train your puppy to sit in minutes.

How to train your puppy to sit:

OK we are all prepared and ready to go, you’ve got your yummy treats, a neutral environment and hopefully a reasonably calm and focused puppy.
Let’s give this a go

1. Show your puppy you have the yummiest treats in the world by giving them a taste.


To do this pinch the treat in between your thumb and finger and let them lick and nibble, don’t let them have the entire treat straight away.
After 10-20 seconds let them have the treat.



2. Now using this same treat giving technique.
While your puppy is nibbling and chewing the treat from your fingers, lift your hand so their head tilts back and looks towards the ceiling, keep going back slowly until your puppy sits on their own accord.
As soon as they sit give them the treat and a tonne of praise!!!

3. Once your technique is feeling good, start introducing the word “sit” at the beginning of the exercise. Say sit then show your puppy to sit using the technique.


After some time of getting it right, your puppy will start to automatically sit on command.
Make sure once it happens you give lots of praise and of course the treat.

https://furfunme.com/pets/how-to-train-your-dog/

Having trouble check out these tips to help:

Tip 1:The first few times, you can also be using your free hand, apply a small amount of pressure to their lower back/bum.
This helps encourage them into the sit position, you shouldn’t really need to do this but sometimes it helps speed things up.


Tip 2: If your puppy is just walking backwards, you can stand them in front of a wall to prevent this. try to make sure your hand isn’t moving backwards with them. They will stay with the treat so observe movements carefully.

Tip 3: Don’t train for too long, go for a maximum of 20 mins. Any longer and your no longer being productive.

It is as easy as that. Make sure to keep practising it several days in a row to really make sure it sticks.

Vet Questions About Dogs, Answer All 8 Before You Get A New Fur Baby.

French bulldog puppy

Thinking about getting a new family addition? check out the vet questions about dogs, that they want people to ask themselves before getting a new dog.

1. Am I ready to commit to being a great owner?

Before looking at dogs or moving to the next question on this page, ask yourself this.

Am I ready for all the caring, exercising, feeding, training, and paying for a dog for its entire life-span?
If your not 100% yes! Then perhaps getting a dog isn’t right for you.


Dogs are mans best friend for a reason they are loyal, loving and dedicated to their owners.
Although re-homing options and shelters are available and willing to take unwanted dogs. This can be heart-breaking for the dog.


Dogs are rehomeable to other loving families and owners, However, if you’re already thinking of re-homing as a potential option one day.
Then its probably best not to purchase a dog.
You need to be 100% ready and committed to getting a dog.

2. Can I afford a dog?

You have many financial obligations once you purchase a dog, for example, food, training, veterinary bills and general health care are just some of the many expenses. Too many times people decide to get a dog without calculating the actual cost of having one.

Are you financially stable enough to cover a large vet bill?
A broken leg or sick dog can easily accrue a bill of hundreds if not thousands.


Not a problem for your finances? Then you are good to go straight to question 3, if not then, unfortunately, assuming or hoping nothing bad will happen to our pets, is not a responsible approach.

Don’t lose hope of getting a new fur friend. Options like pet insurance make it possible for the less financially flush to cover unexpected veterinary bill.
Having a good policy will allow access to money, which will cover a dog’s veterinary care when needed.


If you want to get a dog but have no emergency fund options. Then I strongly recommend you purchase dog insurance, so if anything goes wrong, you don’t have to make a call of life or death based on your finances.

3. Do I have the time for a dog?

Perhaps your living in a busy house, with a range of different people coming and going throughout the day, or perhaps you work from home?


Getting a dog is a great option for you, they are amazing company, and will be a fabulous addition to your life, go to Question 4 = ).

photo of dog s feet 4040657

However, If your living alone, working 40+ hour weeks, and have a busy social life.

Please think long and hard about getting a dog.
Dogs love company, so if you’re never around what will they be doing? Is that a life you potentially want to create for your best fur friend??


Waiting until your situation changes would be better when considering a new dog.

4. What breed of Dog do I want?

With so many different breeds to choose from, this is such an important decision.

This question alone is almost the most important question that Vets want people to ask themselves before getting a new dog.
Please! Do your research, think long and hard about which breed is right for you.


Dog breeds have different personality’s, exercising needs, behaviours, likes, dislikes, and come in all sorts of sizes.
When researching the range of breeds available, make sure you’re paying close attention to what breeds attributes are best suited for your lifestyle.


Check out my recent post on the 2020s most popular breeds, this shows some of the differences occurring between breeds, and will give you a good start in finding a breed that could suit you.
http://furfunme.com/uncategorized/2020s-most-popular-dog-breeds/

5. Do I want a puppy or to adopt an older dog?

New puppies are adorable bundles of cuteness however, they do require a lot of attention, training and care until they are fully grown.


See my recent post on 6 things to consider before getting a puppy.
http://furfunme.com/uncategorized/6-things-to-consider-with-a-new-puppy/


Not hugely hung up on having a puppy, consider adopting your new best friend and giving them a wonderful home.
You can adopt an older dog from a shelter or your local SPCA.


Adoption is great, so many lovely dogs need homes like yours yesterday!
You won’t regret it.
Have children to consider? see my post on best pets for kids to help you with your decision.
http://furfunme.com/uncategorized/best-pets-for-kids/

6. Who will be my dog’s vet?

yellow stethoscope and pills on pink background 4047073

Choosing a vet before purchasing or adopting is a great idea.
Once you have found the right clinic for you, make sure to touch base with them and get as much information as possible.


The staff can advise you on nutrition options, vaccinations, microchipping, worm treatments, flea treatments, puppy classes, behaviourists and they may even have some breeders they can recommend.


Professional advice will differ between a puppy or an older dog, make sure you have decided before taking this step.
None the less, being as prepared as possible is best, especially when it comes to the care of a furry addition.

7. Who will be caring for my dog when I am away?

At some point, we all travel, whether it’s for a holiday or work, we all take a trip from time to time.
Putting your pooch into a kennel facility can be costly.


Preparing for this scenario before is great prep work.
Know someone that would be more than happy to take your dog while you are away?


Awesome then it’s best to touch base with these potential dog sitters and check what they are willing to do.
This way you are as prepared as possible and can consider any extra costs for care while you travel.

8. Is your phone memory ready?

You’re about to fill your phone with the best pictures ever!!
Dog selfies, dog eating, dog sleeping, dog looking cute here and dog looking cute over there.
if you’ve made it this far and you are feeling confident with your decision to expand your family, then congratulations and enjoy
