    My vet believes that my dog has seasonal allergies. She scratches her neck and ears. And chews on her rear paws. He said 1000 mg for my 20 lb dog, since that’Can is the standard human dosage. What else can I do to help her with the itchiness?

    Does she itch all year? Can it also be in part to a food intolerance? You can try Herbsmith’s AllerQi, a tablet with stinging nettle (sometimes it’s with quercetin) and also feeding a food with a “cool” meat like duck. A paw rinse (water and vinegar) before coming inside the house. Also coconut oil – 1 teaspoon a day – may help with allergies.

    Okay thanks :)..I really think it’s environmental because she had a flare up after playing around outside. She has dry skin in the winter but no itching. I’ve been changing up her food so I don’t think it’s a food allergy.
