Is your Dog Scratching and Chewing?

Atopic dermatitis is a common, chronic, inflammatory skin disease in dogs. It’s associated with allergies. Typical symptoms of Canine Atopic Dermatitis include itching, excessive scratching, rubbing on the carpet, hair loss, greasy or flaky skin with a foul odor, and excessive chewing on the paws and areas such as the groin and under the legs. These allergic reactions can be brought on by normally harmless substances like grass, mold spores, house dust mites, and other environmental allergens. Fleas are not the cause of atopic dermatitis, but they can cause flare-ups. Bacterial and yeast infections are frequently associated with atopic dermatitis and initial systemic and/or topical therapy should be considered, followed by regular topical treatment for preventing relapse. A successful long-term outcome can usually be achieved by combining various treatments to maximize their benefits and minimize their drawbacks.

Our compounding pharmacists work together with veterinarians and pet owners to customize medications for problems such as Canine Atopic Dermatitis.
