My dog has been having a lot of itchy skin and has been scratching all the time. But, he is still a good dog. I would like to reward his good behavior but would like to try baking up some healthy dog treat recipes that may be more helpful for his new skin condition. I am not sure if they need to be gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free, grain-free or whatever the latest trendy diet is but I think they should have wholesome ingredients. If anyone has any information about what might be helpful from a dietary perspective for an itchy dog, please let me know.

I would love it if anyone has any healthy dog treat recipes they could share. The days when I give Bruno more treats is when I seem to see more red and itchy patches show up on his skin so I am thinking that healthier treats may be the key to success. Some friends have suggested adding coconut oil or olive oil to his food? Or maybe a fish oil supplement? I’ve also seen adds in dog magazines for other supplements but I would like to first try a more natural route first. I really do not know so please send your ideas my way to help me and Bruno out!

They are expensive, but I would recommend getting an allergy test done (at your vet). They can tell you precisely what your dog is allergic to. They have both food and environmental tests. Ex: Don’t feed your dog, beef, chicken or lamb. May have bison, turkey, fish, etc. Has borderline allergies to . . . (meaning it is possible that it could set off their allergies or not). The vet can then help you find food or treats without those ingredients. Also, with this knowledge, you can then search the web for treat recipes without these ingredients.
