Natural Remedies For Dogs Chewing, Licking and Biting


Why Dogs Chew on Their Skin 

Every time you look, your poor dog is licking, chewing and biting on that same area.  The fur is coming off and the skin appears red and irritated.  Dogs will lick and chew on themselves because the area is bothering them.  It could be a flea bite, dry skin, allergies, parasites,    Your dog could also be experiencing pain in the area or have a cancerous growth.  When a dog is licking and chewing on their fur, skin or coat, especially if it is in the same area, it is a sign it's time to take your dog to the veterinarian.  

One common reason why dogs chew on their skin and coat is allergies.  While humans often display respiratory symptoms such as sneezing and eye irritation from allergies, common symptoms of allergies in dogs can be compulsive chewing, licking and scratching. It may be caused by food or environmental triggers and can become a vicious cycle of using antibiotics and steroids to relieve symptoms.  While steroids, antibiotics and antihistamines may provide temporary relief of symptoms, using a holistic approach can address the root cause of the itching and chewing and offer long-term results.

How To Choose A Diet for Dogs that Chew Their Skin
Pets with yeast and allergies can benefit from a hypoallergenic, low carbohydrate diet.  Best options are to eliminate dry food (high in starchy carbohydrates) and choose a raw frozen or freeze dried raw novel protein diet in combination with some canned. Some proteins such as poultry are an allergen for many cats and dogs so avoiding common food allergens is very helpful.
