Dogs can get itchy for a variety of reasons: allergies, such as food or environmental allergies, can lead to severe itching, redness, and skin inflammation.

Parasitic infections like fleas, mites, or ticks are common culprits as well.

Additionally, skin conditions like dermatitis, fungal infections, or autoimmune diseases can provoke relentless itching. It’s crucial to identify the root cause through a veterinary evaluation: untreated, chronic itching can lead to skin damage and discomfort for the dog.
