Bugalugs Guide to Allergy Season

Itchy Skin & Allergy Season

Why does my pet have itchy skin?

There are many reasons for itchy skin in pets. This time of year, it’s likely as result of allergies to pollen or fleas and ticks.

Luckily, there are ways to combat your pet’s itchy skin and help them through allergy season, and Bugalugs are here to help!


How can I tell the difference between allergies and fleas and ticks?

Allergies tend to come with an array of symptoms and itchy skin is just one! You may find that your pet is becoming more prone to ear infections, hair loss, sneezing, and red patches over the body. If you notice an accumulation of these symptoms alongside the itchiness, it’s likely that your pet is suffering with seasonal allergies.

If there aren’t any additional symptoms, your pet might be dealing with fleas or ticks. To distinguish between them, examine your pet’s fur and skin. You’ll likely spot bites and possibly the pests themselves. You might also experience itching and notice bites on your own skin.

How can I help?

Luckily, Bugalugs have an array of products to help ease the symptoms of both allergies and fleas and ticks.

How can I alleviate my pet’s itchy skin?

The Bugalugs Flea and Tick shampoo is packed full of Neem Oil. Neem Oil is a wonderful ingredient that helps to wash fleas and ticks from the coat, whilst leaving your dog smelling fantastic and feeling silky soft. Not only this, but Neem Oil can aid in soothing inflamed skin, making it perfect for post bite care.

To aid with itchy skin from both allergies and fleas and ticks, why not try the Itchy Skin Spray? This antiseptic solution aids in disinfecting the skin and ensures that wounds from scratching are kept clean, whilst reducing the excessive itching caused by allergies and fleas and ticks.

How can I assist my pet with allergies?

Another fantastic product is the Bugalugs Salmon Oil. Salmon Oil not only has an array of benefits to your pet’s health, but it also aids in creating a barrier between the skin and the outside so that your dog has a little more protection when it comes to their environment. This means that allergic reactions to the environment can be reduced by continuous use of the salmon oil in your pet’s diet.

We’d also suggest increasing the frequency of cleaning your pet’s coat to remove pollen effectively. Pollen cannot be seen by the naked eye, so it’s good practice to ensure that you’re washing the coat regularly to ensure that these irritants are being removed from your pet. The Bugalugs Oatmeal Shampoo is a fantastic product to use on allergy plagued pets. The Oatmeal Shampoo is gentle, packed full of colloidal oatmeal and aloe vera, which helps to soothe and rehydrate stressed skin. For in-between washes, we’d recommend wiping down your pet’s coat and paws after walks with the Bugalugs Pet Wipes. This will ensure that irritants are removed regularly, especially after exposure to the outside.
