Did you spot your pooch severely scratching his body or licking his paws? If yes, then I am afraid, he is most likely suffering from some kind of allergy. Don’t be shocked or worried. Like humans, dogs too suffer from various types of allergies. So, if you have seen your doggy scratch or licking, please do not assume that he has only ticks and fleas, which will go away after you bathe him. Instead, consult a veterinary doctor, because he/she will be able to tell you what exactly the issue is.
