Help Keep Your Dog Itch-Free!

Help Keep Your Dog Itch-Free!

Like us, our dog’s skin can become sensitive to everyday factors.

Environmental factors, pests and even diets can cause havoc upon our pet’s skin and leaving their skin irritated and itchy. One factor we believe causes more cases of irritated skin than anything else is food intolerances to everyday ingredients that can be found in many dog’s food across the market.

But do not fear, the Natural Cornish Pet Shop are here, and we have lots of solutions to eradicate itchy and scratchy skin, leaving your four-legged friend soothed and itch-free, leaving more time to do the things they love.

Causes of Itchiness

For our pets, itchy skin can be caused by numerous factors. From grains and cereals in their food, to fleas and ticks biting away; learning exactly what is making your dog itch is the first step towards helping them!

Grain allergies & intolerances develop in dog’s due to an over consumption of them throughout their life. As wheat, barley, rye, oats act as key component in many leading dog food brands, it is hard to avoid the gluttony of gluten in our pet’s diet. From white potatoes to rice; grains are used to provide the ‘filling power’ of many dog foods, but can actually be the source of canine itching later on in life. As many of us know, despite our adoration for the White Potato, grains can wreak havoc upon our health and too much of these wonderful tasting foods can actually lead to digestive & skin issues in our furry friends.

At the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we have a range of grain-free brands that are ideal for dogs with known intolerances and allergies, or for those who think their pooch may benefit from a grain-free diet.

Pesky Parasites

We all know how horrible it is to be bitten by a nasty bug. Leaving us with an annoying itch that we cannot seem to scratch; bug bites can really cause havoc for our skin. As one of the most irritating itches in our dog’s life – fleas can cause a multitude of problems for our pet’s skin.

Known to cause havoc upon our pets and leave their fur covered in black dots and scratching away for days, these pesky parasites seem to always find a way of jumping onto their victims. Whether it’s a spot-on treatment or in tablet form, there are many products out there that aim to cure these crazy critters but we have saved you the hassle of shopping around and comprised a list of flea treatments to save your soul and the skin of your poochie pal.

Stop that scratching!
