What is that itch?

Published by Samantha Aspeling on

A pet with skin allergies can be quite concerning when you see them itching on their skin all the time, but what can you do about it? Is there something you can do to reduce how much they itch?

LocumBaseVETS has partnered with Eco-Vet to provide your Vet Practice or even your own pets with the support and treatment they need.

Eco-Vet is a breakthrough in alternative medicines for animals. Two decades of experience and testimonials can prove this. Eco-Vet’s all-natural products are simple to use, easy to understand and effective in dealing with desperate situations that conventional treatment cannot cure. Eco-Vet products are gentle on animals and can be administered with little effort.

So, how do you reduce itching in pets with skin allergies? Your vet will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your pet’s itching, but anti-itch medications. Medicated shampoos and topical ointments are common treatments for itchy skin.

The best way to help your pet stop itching is to visit your veterinarian. They will be able to determine the cause of your pet’s itching and treat it in the appropriate manner. Depending on the cause of your pet’s itching, the various itch remedies on the market may not be suitable and could make the problem worse.

Colloidal Oatmeal Baths

Colloidal oatmeal has been shown to have natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help to ease redness, swelling, and itchiness. What’s more, it’s completely non-toxic. 

Aloe Vera

100% aloe vera (that doesn’t contain alcohol) is a great natural remedy for relieving redness and drawing heat away from the skin, which is great for pets that have been itching a lot. Apply directly to your pet’s affected areas.

  • Skin allergies and irritation
