My Pit Bull keeps bugging her tail and rolling on her back. Why is she itchy? She is two years old. Kamron

Dear Kamron,

It is common for Pit Bulls to have allergies. This usually leads to the anal glands filling up quickly. The pressure in the gland causes them to lick or chew at their hindquarters or drag their butt on the ground. To address allergies you need to work with the immune system. You might want to look at some of our products to help alleviate the itchiness. Derma-IonX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and inflammation, promotes healing of the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include Canine probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. For the dietary modifications you might want to try a grain free diet for a while.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using these products can help provide relief.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
