Dog Itch: Causes, Symptoms & Solutions
Unfortunately for some dogs and their owners, internal deficiencies and environmental factors can cause itch in dogs. This itchiness does more than drive your dog crazy; it can develop into hot spots, and a host of other irritating skin and/or ear infections.
The most common allergens are bug bites, foods, and atopy (inhaled allergens). Because each dog is unique, there can be many underlying issues. Owners of dogs with allergies may have to rule out a few causes before finding the perfect fix.
Here are a few helpful ideas:
Many dogs are allergic to the saliva from fleas, ticks, and other biting insects. Protect your dog by using Bug Off Garlic to repel fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other biting insects. Also, Bug Off Garlic helps build and keep a healthy immune system, the better to ward off infections, etc. Springtime offers Bug Off Garlic in granule form or easy-feeding tablets, which are great for kibble diets.
Longevity™ is a powerful whole live food blend in powder form that has anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory along with live enzyme activity which contributes to digestive and immune health. Soothing, healing help for hot spots, and coats becoming luxuriously soft has been noted. Many customers whose dogs had developed yeasty ear issues also reported excellent results.
If you were concerned about using a powder like Longevity, you could instead use the Combo (which is Fresh Factors and Joint Health Chewables sold together in a kit) and that would get you pretty close to all the ingredients found in Longevity. The chewables are very easy to break, and you can just toss them into your dog’s food.
Omega fatty acids are important building block for healthy skin and coat. Also, Omega 3-6-9™ is a great anti-inflammatory, and will quickly aid in reducing the itch factor.
Bee Pollen is one of the world’s most nutrient dense foods and one of the most helpful for allergies. The potent anti-histamine properties, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can quickly turn an uncomfortable dog into a much more happy, peaceful one. Many customers whose dogs suffered from mange or excessive allergic symptoms have given us good feedback for this product.

Fresh Factors Solved His Severe Itch
Fresh Factors are great! I have a Samoyed, Cherokee, who has skin allergies and had lost most of his beautiful coat. I started him on Fresh Factors and his coat is more beautiful than ever. The vet wanted to put him on allergy shots but we tried the Fresh Factors and it is like a miracle to us and Cherokee! Thank you for all of your products. I tell everyone that has animals to try it.
