Dog's and Itchy Skin
We have all seen our pet's scratch, but when is it too much? I wanted to focus on ears, due to the high volume of dogs who suffer from ear issues. The itching may be caused by a variety of problems, including parasites or allergies. Yeast infections are best noticed, when dogs scratch ears and lick their toes. At times the dog will scratch so much that the ear will bleed. In most cases a visit to the vet could alleviate the issue. If caught early a topical cream is usually prescribed. In extreme cases the dog may need oral medication. If your dog appears to have any symptoms, to properly diagnose visit your veterinarian.
