Dermatitis is a skin disease that affects more than 10% of dogs, and in this blog we will try to explain more about this condition, the consequences on our dog, how to reduce the chances of its manifestation and how to improve its symptoms if he already has it.
It is a condition that generates inflammation in the skin, causing itching that results in constant scratching, burning, stinging and other skin conditions. These symptoms manifest themselves when the skin loses its protective barrier and, consequently, all pathogens are filtered and the dermis becomes much more vulnerable.
The most common symptoms when dermatitis occurs are: continuous scratching, frequent licking, redness, inflammation and infection, excessive hair loss…
A change of diet will be one of the most effective actions we can take, since the digestive system, the immune system and allergic reactions are closely related and a reduction of the symptoms can be achieved.
If we strengthen the immune system, we will reduce allergies and their symptoms. This is understood because allergies are an exaggerated response of the immune system, which reacts to a stimulus that should not cause any alteration in the organism. With a diet that contains mainly meat, we will achieve a healthy intestinal flora and an immune system that will be maintained at 100% to be able to fight any pathogen with a high level of antibodies.
A dog fed with a cereal-based diet will be more predisposed to suffer intestinal diseases, allergies and intolerances, dermatitis, canine alopecia, among others.
Thanks to the essential fatty acids contained in the natural diet and specifically in Bon Appetreat, we guarantee an improvement. Vitamin D, zinc, glutamine, vitamin C and omegas 3 and 7 have been proven to be very effective therapeutic measures for these conditions.

Applying essential oils that have a high amount of B vitamins is very beneficial for the skin of our dogs with dermatitis.
At Bon Appetreat we have had many dogs with these conditions that came from eating hypoallergenic feed that, far from improving their situation, in some cases had worsened it. By changing the diet and introducing specific supplements, the symptoms progressively improved and even reduced noticeably.
