One of my dogs is either asleep, or itching. It’s been so frustrating trying to figure out the cause because she can’t tell me what’s going on with her! And it hasn’t been this way except for the past year or so. There are so many things that could be causing the irritable behavior and I’ve tried everything to help reduce her discomfort. Changing food. Changing protein sources. Vegetarian food. Adding honey. Zyrtec. Baths. Wiping her feet after being outdoors. Aversion. Diversion. This version. That version. Clapping when she itches. Apoquel. We had the best results from the Apoquel medicine but unfortunately, reviews and warnings downright scare me.
I’m pretty much at a loss now as to how to get her back to a comfortable place. Could it be something in the yard? The pesticides from the pest control service I started about a year ago? Dust in the house? And it still could be food related. I’m trying another idea today, switching her food out from dry food to canned food. Fingers crossed that it helps!
If you have any home remedies that’ve worked, I’m all ears!
