Irritated skin can often be a sign of food allergy,

or that your dog isn’t getting the right amount of fats and oils from their diet – they need a certain amount for their skin and coat to stay shiny and healthy. If they seem to be scratching a lot of their skin seems unusually dry, this is a sign that you might need to talk to a vet or nutritionist. Sometimes the food might be right but they may have developed an environmental allergy, so it’s always worth checking all possible options when you’re looking for a solution!

All dogs are different, and some need a little more help than others when it comes to making sure they have enough vitamins in their diet. Joint care supplements containing glucosamine are ideal for older dogs to keep them active and lively, while our range of calming aids will help pets deal with stressful situations such as fireworks or even long-term travelling.
