Why is Itchy Skin Common?

Sensitive skin in dogs can be brought by multiple factors. Your pooch may suffer from flea bites, parasites, dry conditions or seasonal allergies. Dry skin is typical in the winter whereas reactions flare up increasingly in the hotter months. 

Your dog may also have genetic conditions that result in sensitive skin. Allergies can be life-threatening, though dry or inflamed skin is the usual symptom. What’s more, your dog can develop intolerances to particular foods that manifest in itching and dry skin.

Key Symptoms of Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be clearly visible, although our pooch’s long hair can conceal these signs. You should look out for the following symptoms. 

  • Scratching
  • Rubbing against objects
  • Obsessive licking
  • Rashes 
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Bumps on skin 
  • Paw biting

When Should You Go to a Vet?

If you witness any of these symptoms affecting your dog far more than usual then you should take them to a vet for a professional examination. A change in behaviour can indicate a change in condition that may harm your dog further.

Benefits of Hypoallergenic Dog Food

Choosing a hypoallergenic food for dogs with sensitive skin helps relieve the pain and discomfort of dry, itchy skin. Here are some of the benefits:

Prevent Allergic Reactions

Offering foods with or with grains plus novel protein reduces the risk of allergic reactions by including ingredients that are unfamiliar to your dog’s immune and digestive system.

Healthier Skin

While addressing the causes of sensitive skin, our food also includes all the amino acids and nutrients required to maintain robust skin and a shiny, healthy coat.

Support Immune System

Using novel proteins and essential nutrients, hypoallergenic dog food can boost your pup’s immune system and protect them from future illnesses.

Vet Approved

With the help of canine nutritionists, we created a food that is approved by vets.

My 18-month lab loves Bug Bakes. It gives him a healthy shiny coat. He has been eating Bug Bakes for 6 months now and he has very few health issues. I would recommend Bug Bakes as a brilliant healthy option to any dog.

My dogs LOVE this dog food 😍 and the Bug Bakes dog treats. We have 2 French Bulldogs with lots of allergies and the Bug Bakes grain free has made such an improvement to their itching, gnawing at paws etc. their coats are now lovely and shiny too. All this AND we are helping the environment 👍🏻

Paula Johnson

My dog -a really fussy eater- loves this food. He has this alongside human food and looks really well. His coat is really shiny and he has bags of energy. Love it! Great to find something he likes
