Ditch The Itch: Dog Dry Skin Relief Checklist
Dog Dry Skin Relief Checklist

Keeping your dog’s skin healthy and free from itching may be as simple as following on of these suggested remedies:

Olive Oil

Adding some olive oil to your dog’s food can help keep their skin free from itching

Oatmeal Bath

Just like it does for humans with chicken pox, an oatmeal bath can soothe your dog’s itchy skin.

Reduce Dust in the Home

Change your furnace filters regularly and be sure to vacuum your home frequently to remove dust that may be triggering your dog’s itchiness

Ask Your Vet About Medications

If your dog develops itchy skin after being prescribed medications, ask your vey about whether or not your dog might be having a reaction to the medication

Avoid Hair Dryers

If you use a hair dryer on your dog after baths, the hot air may be drying out their skin. Instead, consider using a special towel designed specifically for drying you dog after a bath.

Regular Grooming

Having your dog groomed regularly helps get rid of dead skin and old hair which may be irritating your pups skin.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Supplementing your dog’s diet with plenty of omega-3 fatty acids can help keep their skin healthy.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Spraying your dog’s skin and paws with a 50/50 solution of apple cider vinegar and water daily can help relieve itching

Change Dog Foods

Your dog’s itchy skin may be caused by a food allergy so check to see if your dog’s food may be the culprit

Keep Your Dog Away from Allergens

Certain plants your dog may encounter outside, such as some types of grass can trigger allergic reactions and leave your pup itchy for days.

Use a Humidifier

Dry air inside the home can cause dogs’ skin to become dry and itchy especially during the winter with the heat being one, so use a humidifier to keep the air from becoming too dry.

Coconut Oil

Applying coconut oil topically or mixing some with your dog’s food can help keep their skin moisturized and itch-free. 


A prescription for antihistamines may help relieve your dog’s itching

Check for Fleas

If your dog has fleas, treat their bedding and any rugs or upholstery in the house along with using flea collars or flea baths to be rid of them for good.
