IMPORTANT:
Our definition of “Itchy” includes the following terms:

Itching
Scratching
Licking
Chewing

ALSO: Ears and paws are a common target for allergies. Some dogs may have a history of ear infections before paws or other areas of skin become involved. When we ask you a question relating to your dogs “skin” please include paws and ears in your consideration to your answer.
