Do you suspect your dog has allergies? How to tell.
As hard as it may be to believe, even our best friends, sweet doggies and kitties, get allergies. Pets develop allergies for a variety of reasons, but usually it’s when their immune system gets confused and begins to react to normal substances as if they were harmful, which can lead to itchiness, discomfort, and irritation. Some of the reasons for allergies are environmental substances floating in the air, like pollen and dust, or sometimes it can be food-related. In some cases, allergies can be caused by flea saliva, making flea bites even more of a scratchy nuisance than they would normally be.
The most common signs of allergy are:
- Repetitive head shaking
- Chronic ear infections
- Rubbing the face on walls, carpet, and furniture
- Hair loss known as “hot spots”
- Irritated skin paired with constant scratching and chewing, and even scabs and lesions at times
- Itchy paws lead to frequent licking and biting, which means paws can be red and tender
While pups may be experiencing allergies, they could also have very sensitive skin, which means it gets irritated more easily. Pets with sensitive skin suffer with dry flaky skin, itchy paws, and red skin. Even hygiene plays a role here. A dog’s paws come in direct contact with dirt and when moisture gets stuck between the paw pads, yeast can build up, causing extreme discomfort for your dog. Of course, it’s important to visit with your vet to discover the underlying cause of the allergy (if that’s what it is), but providing your pup with safe and reliable shampoo for cleaning is part of the healing process. And the good news is, we at Tierra Mia Organics have a great solution—dog shampoo for dry skin—our very own Sham-Pup Pet Shampoo.
Like us, our pet’s skin needs vitamins and minerals to keep their pH balance intact. At Tierra Mia Organics, we use raw goat’s milk to ensure all our products have a pH balance that suits both our needs and our pet’s. Goat’s milk helps to nourish your pet’s skin and to keep it moisturized and healthy. ShamPup uses only a few ingredients and better yet, doesn’t contain chemicals that dry out skin. It will help soothe your pet’s skin and bring it back to a nice and healthy balance. The oils used in our pet shampoo are formulated to help to keep your pet’s coat shiny and soft—say goodbye to redness, itchiness, and discomfort.
ShamPup pet shampoo is safe to use on humans and gentle enough that you can use it on your pet as often as you’d like. ShamPup can be used on dogs, cats, or on any of your furry friends. We even use it here to clean our sweet goats when needed! And if at any point one of our animals gets a cut or scrape, it’s straight to Sham-Pup for the rescue.
