Show Us Your Dog’s A-Game brings awareness to how skin issues can affect a dog’s well-being and encourages pet owners to visit their veterinarian, who can provide information about how the right treatment can help bring back their dog’s A-Game.
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.
