My dog's scratches and his skin is raw looking (pink) what can I do to help relieve the itching.

The most common cause of scratching in pets is mites. Try these natural easy-to-do remedies:

  • Olive oil is administered in the ears, through a dropper.
  • A mixture of almond oil (15 ml) with 400 IU of Vitamin E is warmed and poured in the ear.
  • A spray of apple cider vinegar over the hair proves beneficial in curing redness.
  • A bath with maize starch helps in itch relief.

Persistence of itching and redness calls for the guidance of a veterinary doctor.
