MY ONE YEAR OLD MALE GERMAN SHEPHERD HAS ALLERGIES THAT CAUSE HIM TO SCRATCH AND BITE HIS SKIN

June 10, 2014

My one year old male German shepherd has allergies that cause him to scratch and bite his skin. I am changing his food to a holistic natural kibble. Would your supplements help with his allergies?

Hi Jan,

Although the Everyday Health Supplement can not cure an allergy, it will help the immune system function more normally and thus allow the skin to be as healthy as is possible. We have many reports that dogs do improve with the use of the supplement particularly the Healthy Skin and Coat formula with the added fatty acids. Give it a try and let me know. Hope this is of some help to you. Give the supplement at least one month trial. Purina also makes a prescription diet called HA. Your vet will be able to get some for you. The added advantage of using the Everyday Health with German Shepherds is that it will help prevent bloat, toxic gut and intestinal torsion all big fast killers of GSDs.
