Our Lintbells Pupnic #VetMyPetsItch

My dog had until very recently a lovely coat, lately though she has had lots of unexplained dry flaky skin.  I tried brushing her more regularly but the problem didn’t seem to go away.  I think it is starting to bother her; she can often be found scratching and is forever licking her paws or grooming her coat, all of which are signs a dog might have an allergy to something.  If you are concerned about why your pet is itching please see your vet for further advice.

Possibly my dog’s itch could be linked to the warmer weather we have been experiencing and the amount of time she is now outdoors in the garden.  It seems logical something must be aggravating her skin whilst she is outside.  Whether its tree pollen or grass I really can’t be sure, so instead I wanted to find a product to calm her sensitive skin rather than limit the time she spends outdoors.  It’s quite tricky because it’s impractical to just fence off a section of our garden because Summer would still continue to inhale allergens (even if she is not in direct contact with them) as she plays outdoors.  We have a few trees in our garden so thinking about it Summer is exposed to quite a lot of pollen, pollen is in the air and dogs can be sensitive to dust mites and fleas so it’s impossible to avoid it.

Summer is at her happiest in the sunshine, watching people walking by, chasing after a ball or trying to attack the water hose and I want her to continue to enjoy our garden and our mountain hikes.  I don’t want to restrict where she can go just to manage her itch instead I’d rather us an natural health supplement that can help her feel and look so much better. 

You can read more about YuMEGA Itchy Dog over on the Lintbells website, I have a lot of respect for this company as they really want to make a difference in all our pet’s lives, keeping them happy and healthy and never compromising on quality!  I was very impressed to read how high the quality standard is with this product; Lintbells reject oils that would be found in some human supplements. 

For many of us our dog is one of our best friends, a valued and much loved member of the family.  I think its great that so much care is taken when it comes to selecting only the most premium of ingredients, like the finest Salmon oil from the crystal clear fjords of Norway, the freshest oil extracted from Golden Flax and Starflower (Borage) seeds and added natural Vitamin E to support the skin's natural defences.  YuMEGA Itchy Dog is jam packed with oils that effectively calm and soothe your dog’s skin restoring their coat to its former glory!

Another plus point is that this particular supplement is so easy to use; you just add it to your dog’s food!  

We were thrilled to have a Lintbells Pupnic together and as you can see Summer was more than happy to tuck into her usual dog food brand with an appetising drizzle of YuMEGA Itchy Dog (please follow the recommended daily feeding guide).  

I am looking forward to the condition of her coat continuing to improve over the next six weeks.  Alongside YuMEGA Itchy Dog I also plan to use a microfiber cloth to remove allergens attached to her coat, its all about getting into better habits for spring and summer to avoid those nasty itchy flare-ups.

  1. Summer is so cute, I think I may buy some to see if it helps my itchy dog. Can we have an update in 6 weeks to let us know how Summer is doing?

  2. use yumega products on my dogs they are really good.

  3. Aww your pooch is so adorable

  4. Summer is such a cutie, our dog has just started to itch and lick herself over the past few weeks and we are at a loss of what is causing it. So would love to hear how you get on :)

  5. that port adventure looks so magical loved some of the rides you went on

  6. I have 3 basset hounds & one of them is allergic to everything.. food .. pollen.. products. She actually lost all her hair with a flea spray once.. this would be fabulous to try

  7. I have noticed that Doni (labrador cross something or other) is more itchy in the summer. Not due to fleas (as we do him regularly) but think it might have something to do with the weather. He's not OVERLY uncomfortable but wouldn't want him to get any worse.
