Grass allergies cause redness and violent itching only in the areas of skin that don't have much hair to protect them from contact with grasses, usually that is the tummy, feet and sometimes the chin. The reaction also tends to come and go. Sometimes a dog is fine for month or so and then you walk them in a new park and overnight they come up in a hot red, itchy rash. They are often licking all 4 of their paws relentlessly. BioPet Grasses is designed for pets with grass allergies.
Food /metabolic issue - If there is itching all over the body, not just the hairless areas, then it is either salt/food related in which case the dog has a strong 'doggy' smell that returns a few days after being shampooed. In these cases the remedy BioPet Skin is designed to help with this.
Dust or Carpet allergy - If they itch all over but don't have a doggy smell then it could be a 'carpet allergy' or house dust allergy and you can buy a prescription remedy for this from our website at Prescription for DOGS. In the checkout page put either 'carpet allergy' or 'house dust allergy' in the 'Delivery Instructions and additional information' text box.
Flea allergy - Finally, if the itching is mostly at the base of tail and hind legs then it is likely to be a flea allergy - BioPet Fleas is designed to support the pet's immune response to flea allery and repels fleas.
Emotional or Compulsive Itchy/chewing – If a dog only licks at his/her front feet, then it is likely to be a habitual or comfort behavior like chewing finger nails. BioPet Relax added to their water dish is recommended for these dogs.
None of the above – Some dogs have a chronic, complicated skin condition that really needs a consultation and a prescription remedy. The email consultation costs $80 and the Prescription for DOGS is $60. This fee includes monitoring via email for the first month.
