There is an itching problem on the leg of my Labrador who is eight years old. How can I find a solution to this?


Moist eczema, fungal or bacterial infections, allergies, acral lick or parasites may cause itching confined to some spots or body areas. It is better to find underlying cause rather than managing with symptomatic treatment. Please take him to your vet for examination or investigation. Skin and hair coat alone take away approximately 30 percent of protein from the diet for his health. Omega fatty acids and zinc capsules everyday in the food may also help him to improve his hair coat in the short term when no underlying cause identified.
