Have you got an itchy dog?

During the spring and summer months we see high numbers of dogs with itchy skin.In the past, the only way to manage atopy (itchy skin) was through medications such as steroids and antihistamines but Royal Canin nutritionists and veterinarians have developed a Prescription Diet specially formulated to help manage environmental sensitivities in dogs.

Skin Support has been created to help manage non-food related skin conditions. Skin Support has a palatability guarantee—this means that if your dog does not like it, you can bring it back for a full refund. Please note that when first starting the diet, it can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks before you see results while the body responds to the diet.

Skin Support is a complete diet for dogs to help improve the skin's natural defences and promote healing. It can be used in cases of atopic dermatitis, flea bite allergy dermatosis and excessive loss of hair.

Feeding Advice: As soon as the first signs of skin disease appear, the diet should be prescribed for a 2-month period to obtain visible results. For chronic disease, this dermatological diet can be maintained for the dog's entire lifetime. It is recommended that a veterinarian’s opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use.
