"When I first noticed Rosie itching around the collar, and later chewing around her thighs, I thought she had fleas Or ringworm"

Rosie, a lab/shepherd/Rottweiler mix, came into my life 11 years ago while I was working on a pet adoption project. After spending the day with her, I fell completely in love and adopted her that same day. When I first noticed Rosie itching around the collar, and later chewing around her thighs, I thought she had fleas or ringworm.

Her itching and chewing began to get in the way of doing the things she loved – interrupting her play time, sleeping, eating, and would even cause her to stop to itch during our walks around the city...she was off her game! I decided to take Rosie to the veterinarian as soon as I saw her itching was getting in the way of everyday activities – and I’m so glad that I did!

Her veterinarian diagnosed her with allergic itch and prescribed an effective treatment that relieved her itching almost immediately.

Is Fido Off His A-Game?

For many years, steroids or antihistamines were the only treatments for itch relief in allergic dogs. However, steroids can have side effects such as increased drinking, urination and appetite, and antihistamines can cause drowsiness in some dogs.1,2

There is another treatment available that decreases dogs’ itch and desire to scratch, while also reducing skin inflammation or redness.
