If your dog has frequent itching, your veterinarian can help!
For many years, corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, or antihistamines were the only treatment for itch relief in dogs. However, steroids and immunosuppressive drugs can have serious long-term side effects such as increased panting, liver disease, and risk of infection, and antihistamines can cause severe drowsiness.
There is another treatment available that decreases dogs’ itches and desire to scratch, while also reducing inflammation, redness or swelling of the skin. Get information about a treatment option for allergic itching.
