ITCHING IN PETS

The medical term or itchy skin is pruritus. While it can be overwhelming to see your pet uncomfortably scratching, rest assured that pruritus is quite common in companion animals. While allergies aren’t the only cause, they’re often the most common culprit of pruritus.

Itching in your pet can also be caused by::

  • Contact dermatitis (direct contact with soaps, perfumes, and cleaning solutions)
  • Flea allergy dermatitis
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Sarcoptic mange (mites)
  • Atopy (heightened immune response to allergens)

Schedule an allergy test for your itchy pet today by calling (830) 620-1100 today!
