It may sound silly, but pets scratch because they're itching. The most common cause of itching and scratching in pets is allergies.
Pet allergies can be food related or environment related. Food allergies in pets include allergies to gluten, wheat, corn and other grains. Food allergies can be related to some meat protein source as well.
Environmental allergies include grasses, trees, shrubs, molds and house dust mites. Some pets might be scratching because of parasites such as fleas or ticks. Also, some pets are also allergic to their own skin bacteria and yeast.
If your pet has scratching issues, please call us and we will help find and treat the problem and get your pet comfortable.
