Q. My dog keeps scratching all day long. What should I do?
A. Skin problems can have a variety of causes, sometimes more than one. It is important to have the problem checked by your vet to determine if there is a medical cause for your pet’s skin issues and treat accordingly.
It could potentially be fleas, allergies to a type of food you are feeding him, seasonal allergies, or dry skin. Dry skin is typically caused by too many baths, which don't allow essential oils to build up on the dog's skin, or could also be related to his diet.
If this is the case, you might want to try feeding him a higher quality food, or try purchasing some salmon oil pumps for dogs. These are added to dogs' meals and usually make their skin look and feel healthier rather quickly.
However, it is impossible to determine what the exact cause is without proper physical examination. Therefore, my main suggestion is to have your dog examined by your vet in order to determine the underlying cause and the necessary treatment.
