August 18, 2018 Heather Murphy

Allergies, allergens, allergic reactions and intolerances – the what, the why and the where Itchy rashes in dogs can be so frustrating.  Trying to pinpoint the exact allergen that is causing the rashes is no mean feat!        I’m often advising people about the foods and the difference in the brands, which are ‘clean’ foods and which are not.
