Chewable tablets containing antioxidants, polyphenols, fatty acids & vitamins to keep your dog's skin and coat healthy. Vegetable based beef and bacon flavoring.

Dogs with skin, coat and allergy issues may have the following problems:
  • Licking excessively
  • Crustiness around eyes
  • Red, irritated skin
  • Chewing on paws
  • Dull coat
  • Dandruff
  • Scratching their stomach or ears

These are just a few of the symptoms your dog may have, and if just one symptom applies, your dog could be suffering from allergies or skin & coat problems.   Any breed, size or age of dog can be prone to skin, coat & allergy issues.  Sporting, hunting, and competitive dogs are bred and trained to make them really good at what they do. This also applies to agility dogs, dock jumping dogs, search & rescue dogs, police dogs and other working dogs. They work and train in harsh environments that can be hard on their skin and coats. This same special breeding can also make them more likely to have the problems listed above.  Dogs that spend time outside hiking, camping, swimming or on daily walks will also be exposed to environmental allergens.  According to Dr. Shawn Messonnier, a nationally recognized expert on holistic medicine for animals, “Although there are many causes of itchiness in dogs, the most common is a genetic inflammatory disease called atopic (allergic) dermatitis, often called skin allergies. If your dog is scratching regularly without signs of skin lesions, chances are he has an allergy.” *

Any dog, no matter the breed or size, can have problems with their skin & coat or allergies.  They can happen during different seasons, or year round.  Spring allergy season or dry winter air from indoor heat are just a few examples of when dogs may have problems. 

Treatments for Skin & Coat Problems
There are many ways you can help your dog, with conventional topical treatments, antihistamines and corticosteroids; and with complementary therapies, such as nutritional supplements. It is always smart to check with your veterinarian if the problem is serious, as their may be another cause. But for mild cases of itchiness, a supplement that provides extra nutrients shown to help support healthy skin may be just the thing to help.  Supplements are safe to use with many veterinary prescribed products, such as prednisone, but check with your doctor if you're not sure. 
Dr. Messonnier supports the use of multiple therapies to help allergic dogs, once an accurate diagnosis has been made. Here is what he has to say about just using traditional therapies without considering other options:

“Another thing that is quite troubling to me is that so many pets with chronic allergies are being treated for months or years with potentially harmful medicines, usually steroids and antihistamines, without attempting other safer therapies. The lack of safe, long-term, and effective conventional treatments for allergic pets is the reason I first became interested in complementary therapies. I was frustrated at seeing the same pets in my hospital month after month for their ‘allergy’ shot and a dose of steroid pills. While I could help these pets stop itching for a few weeks, they would always come back for more drugs. I desperately wanted something to decrease their reliance on corticosteroids, which I knew could shorten their lives and was the cause of their side effects of increased appetite, increased intake of food and water, increased urination, and weight gain. ...By getting ‘turned on’ to the many complementary therapies available to pets, I was able to finally offer my patients something other than only conventional medicines that temporarily covered up their symptoms without really addressing the problem and helping the pets heal.” *

Breeds with Skin & Coat Problems
Three breeds identified as being prone to genetic allergic dermatitis are Golden RetrieversLabrador Retrievers and English Setters. While these breeds may be more likely to have problems with itchy skin and allergies, any breed can have allergic dermatitis. Allergies usually show up between 1 to 3 years of age. Some dogs can show signs at just a few months of age; it all depends on their genetic predisposition to allergies.

Checking the list of symptoms is one way to determine if your dog is having problems. The most common symptom will be itching, even if your dog’s skin looks normal. Your dog probably won’t have severe itching at first, it will be more mild or moderate. Severe itching may be a more serious problem like mange, fleas or a food allergy, and you should contact your veterinarian.

If your dog has mild itching and keeps scratching, it can develop into a more serious problem over time. The constant scratching can lead to skin lesions or infections, so don’t ignore even mild scratching. Ear and skin infections in dogs can become  problems that don’t go away and may get worse. Taking action sooner rather than later is always a better choice for your dog.

Environmental Causes
There are many things in the environment that can make your dog itchy. Just like us they will have problems with pollens, molds, ragweed and house dust mites. You may see them reacting during the same seasons that your allergies are giving you problems. This is why dogs can benefit from a product like Itchy Dog that supports their skin & coat health. A dog that trains, works or hunts and often lives outdoors will be exposed to more environmental allergens. Their high activity levels while they are working or competing will also stress their bodies, so extra nutritional support is important. Dogs that live indoors and are family pets can also benefit from Itchy Dog if they have any skin, coat or allergy problems.

INGREDIENTS:

Essential Fatty Acids/EFA's (96 mg): Veterinary research has shown that fish oil supplements were effective in reducing itching and inflammation in 11-27% of allergic dogs. EFAs are often recommended for dry flaky skin and dull coats. Omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids are important for dogs with skin and coat problems. Many veterinarians recommend using EFAs with other supplements for best results.

OPC Polyphenol Antioxidants: OPCs are very strong, water-soluble polyphenol antioxidants from plants. Research shows them to be 20-50 times stronger than vitamins C and E. Antioxidants help the body control free radicals, preventing inflammation and cellular damage. When the body is exposed to an allergen, histamines are released and an allergic reaction may follow. OPCs can reduce the production of histamine-forming enzymes.  OPCs are derived from many plants such as apples, cranberries, pine bark, grape seeds or peanut skins. They are safe and have been extensively researched for use in people and animals for decades.

Vitamin A (1000 IU): An important fat-soluble antioxidant needed to maintain normal epithelial tissues (skin, mucous membranes). It is used to treat skin disorders, among many other benefits. A deficiency can cause skin lesions, dryness, abscesses and cracking.

Vitamin E (10 IU): A well-researched and important fat-soluble antioxidant. Essential to cell membrane health and survival, this antioxidant promotes healthy skin and coat. Helps reduce inflammation and supports a healthy immune system. Veterinarians have reported low levels of vitamin E in dogs with mange.

Zinc (1 mg): An antioxidant that is an essential nutrient for the synthesis of bone, healthy skin and resistance to disease. Zinc is an important mineral found in every cell in the body. Two rare skin disorders have been linked to zinc deficiency, and supplemental zinc is therefore recommended by veterinarians as treatment.

Alpha lipoic acid/ALA (30 mg): A unique antioxidant with its own benefits that also helps restore and recycle other antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and glutathione. Its ability to fight both water-soluble and fat-soluble free radicals makes it especially beneficial for dogs with allergies. ALA is important in the process that turns carbohydrates into energy in the body, which is a crucial benefit for active working dogs.

Dried seaweed meal: A green food containing many essential amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, choline and essential fatty acids. It is a good source of beta-carotene and is a highly bioavailable free radical fighter.

Other Ingredients: Dried Whey, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Vegetable Based Beef and Bacon Flavors, Safflower oil, Fish oil

FAQs

Can my dog use ZoomDog?
ZoomDog products can be used by dogs of any activity level, size or life stage. Our safe formulas and weight-based daily recommended amounts ensure that any dog can be a ZoomDog!
 
How much does my dog need to take each day?
Daily recommend amounts are listed by weight starting with 1 pound, so make sure you have a current weight on your dog for best results. Please see the "Recommended Usage" for specific amounts. If your dog has severe skin and coat issues, we suggest doubling the recommended usage, divided between morning and evening, until symptoms subside, at which point you may return the regular usage amounts.
 
Can I use Itchy Dog and a ZoomDog joint health formula together?
Yes! You can use both. We suggest giving the full usage amount of one and only half the usage amount of the other. For example in allergy season, use a full amount of Itchy Dog and half amount of Joint Health Soft Chews. If your dog is competing or if they get stiffer in winter, when skin and coat issues aren't as much of a problem, use the full usage amount of Joint Health Soft Chews and half the usage amount of Itchy Dog.
 
How long until I see results?
Many people see results within the first two weeks. Make sure you double the recommended usage for the first 5 days, as stated on the label instructions. Be patient, supplements can take up to four to six weeks to develop significant results. 
 
Will this work for my dog?
ZoomDog works very well for most dogs (please see our product reviews). Make sure that you use the recommended daily amount for at least a full 30 days. All dogs are different and in the small chance that ZoomDog supplements don't work as you expect, we will send an alternate product or provide a full refund of the bottle price.
