Without doubt, the best gift you can give your pet this Christmas is comfort. And we don't mean a king sized bed or a back massage! The most simple way to make sure your pet is comfy is to prevent itchy skin.

Allergies to fleas, grasses, trees, plant pollen, dust mites and moulds as well as certain foods can all set off an attack of the itches.

Itchy dogs will bite, lick or scratch with their legs whereas a cat will constantly lick at particular areas, causing hair loss.

Itching quickly leads to self-trauma of the skin and this causes secondary infections that require (expensive) antibiotic treatment.

 Top tips for preventing an itch: 

 1   Be absolutely vigilant with flea treatment all year round. Fleas are THE major cause of an itchy pet and regular use of a flea treatment is cheaper and easier than repairing the damage. PET GUARDIANS has a huge range of the best flea treatment products on the market.

 2   Keep your pet's skin and coat in top shape to provide a good barrier from allergens - PET GUARDIANS stocks premium diets balanced in essential fatty acids.

 3   Wash your dog in pet approved shampoo and conditioner.

If you have an itchy pet at your house and none of the above treatments seem to work then it may be time to visit your vet. They can prescribe relief for your pet in the form of an antihistamine or a medication to help reduce the immune system's response to the allergen. 

Pet Guardians offer a range of prescription medications, including Apoquel for your pets. You will need to have a valid script from a registered vet to purchase our prescription medication online. Contact Pet Guardians today for all your pet needs.
