BayerExpertCare products are helping me eliminate winter’s itchy, dry skin on my pets!
It’s that time of the year again – the leaves have fallen from the trees; the mercury is dipping in the thermometer; the furnace is running; and I have my wood cookstove in the kitchen perking away for a little extra warmth. Oh yes, and I can hear the thump, thump, thump of Malibu and Gemma’s hind legs as they scratch. As we have wood floors, the thumping can wake you from a sound sleep. Here in the Maine North Woods, it gets pretty cold in the late fall and winter so we supplement our regular heating with wood stoves. Great warmth but it makes for a real dry, itchy skin problem for the entire family, both two and four legged. For our German Shepherds, Malibu and Gemma, the skin issues can be bad. Gemma just had a vet appointment last week because she was nibbling so bad I found some crusty abrasions on her skin during grooming. Doc Nesin prescribed a round of prednisone. He also suggested getting some itch relief products to use in the daily grooming process to help eliminate those dry, flaky, “hot spots” that Gemma seems so obsessed with.
