Golden Retreiver Itching, Scratching and Chewing On His Paws Nonstop

Dear Ariel: My 3 year old Golden Retriever Cody is itching, scratching and chewing on his paws nonstop. I am feeding him a diet that is hypoallergenic and he is still so itchy. This seems to happen to him in the summer. I am already using fish oil which does help but I was wondering if there is anything you can recommend? Brenda

Dear Brenda: Yes--the summertime is really tough for a lot of pets. The heat can make pets very itchy and there are also a lot of allergens that can make them uncomfortable. Since you have already addressed your Golden Retriever's diet, then yes, definitely give some supplements a try. Here is what will help:

AllerEase--This product helps reduce the inflammatory process associated with environmental allergies. It is easy to administer and provides basic support. AllerEase contains two key ingredients known to help relieve allergy symptoms: Quercetin and Nettles. If your pet is very itchy and has any red spots, than it is best to use it in conjunction with Proaller and Notatum for best results.

Syallgen Cream and Pills--Backed by clinical research, this homeopathic formula helps stop itching and scratching. For some, it is the long answer they have finally waited for--relief from environmental allergies.

These products should really help. In addition, please feel free to email us with any questions at or join our pet forum on
