Itchy Skin: What can you do? One of the most common questions we get asked is – My dog or cat has itchy skin and its not fleas: What can you do to help?
My horse is scratching on everything until he or she is bleeding and causing injury. Is there anything that can help?
Well, the answer is YES, natural therapies can greatly assist dogs, cats and horses with itchy skin conditions. Skin problems and allergies are becoming increasingly prevalent among domestic animals today and using drugs to relieve the itch is not the answer for long term relief from this distressing condition. It is important to treat the underlying imbalance that has contributed to the animal’s problem rather than trying to suppress the acute symptoms with harsh drugs.
It can be very distressing to see your animals constantly scratching or licking for hours on end and is even more distressing for the animal. It is well worth trying the natural approach for long term relief from itchy skin.
Select from one of the many options below which are aimed at bringing relief from itchy skin for your animals.

Dog Allergies and Skin Problems interview with Dr Bruce Syme
Allergies are basically an “inappropriate” or “over-zealous” reaction of an animals’ immune system. Genetics certainly play a role in pre-disposing an animal to developing allergies, but environment and nutrition will ultimately decide to what degree the allergy is expressed. One unfortunate reality of allergies is that despite all the advances in modern medicine, allergies are still a “chronic” disease – the best we can hope to do is “control” the expression of an allergy, and limit the use of drugs required to do so. Dr Bruce Syme BVSc. (Hons), Founder of Vets All Natural.
