Itching and scratching are the second-most common reason people bring their pets to the vet. (Diarrhea tops the list… pleasant, I know.) So what gives? Well, plenty of things from oil to dryness to allergies can be causing irritation on your pet’s coat. Of course, for excessive scratching and any rashes that may appear, a vet is your best bet for quick relief for your pet, but if you already know the cause, these herbal remedies might be a helpful supplement to your pet’s skin care regimen.
