6 Things That Are Causing Your Dog to Constantly Scratch Itself

Allergies

Your dog may develop allergies to certain foods. There may also be something in the environment that is causing it to develop an allergic reaction. Your dog may also have flea allergies.

Infections

Your dog may be infected with a bacterial, yeast, or fungal infection. A common cause of bacterial infections in dogs is - you guessed it - fleas. Yeast and fungal infections can be caused by mites.

Dry Skin

It may simply be that your dog's skin is dry, causing it to be itchy and irritated. Dry skin is often a result of the humidity in the environment and often occurs during the winter. It can also be caused by your dog's diet.

Anxiety

It is also possible that your dog's compulsive itching and scratching is a result of anxiety or extreme boredom. Make sure your dog is feeling calm, happy, and relaxed.

Hormone Imbalance

If your dog has a hormone imbalance or problems with their endocrine system, skin conditions can develop.

Pests

Biopel Spray Natural Pest ControlOne of the most common causes of skin irritation in dogs is pest infestation. Fleas are extremely common, even in the winter (as they stay warm inside your home). Ticks are another cause of irritation. Mites and mange can bury themselves in your dog's skin and cause it to become extremely itchy.

It is extremely important to choose pest prevention products that are all natural and contain no harmful chemicals. Contact us for more information.
