Fall is upon us and our Groom Shop is already getting clients coming in with itchy and uncomfortable dogs who are suffering from fall allergies. Fall means dying plant life, mold, and dryness that can mess with your dog’s skin.
Signs that your dog is suffering from fall allergies:
- Itching and scratching at body parts
- Excessive licking and chewing at fur and skin
- Fur loss or color change
There are a variety of dog and earth friendly skin therapy shampoos on the market that can help ease your dog’s comfort. Our groom shop prefers Envirogroom Skin Therapy and Earth Bath Tea Tree and Aloe Vera shampoo.
- Envirogroom contains Aloe Vera and a light anti-septic additive. It is pH Balanced just for dogs, it is biodegradable, plant based, is completely non-toxic, and made in the USA.
- Earth Bath Tea Tree and Aloe Vera shampoo is made with pure, natural ingredients, is made in the USA, and is gentle on dog’s skin.
To apply either of these healing shampoos, you should thoroughly brush the shampoo into your dog’s skin and make sure it isn’t just in contact with their coat. Avoid contact with your dog’s eyes, neither of these shampoos are tearless. Let the shampoo sit on your dog for 5-10 minutes, rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
Hopefully with some skin soothing shampoo you and your pup can get back outside and enjoying the changing seasons!
