small club video: Dr. Adam Piaseczny presenting  “ITCHY BUTT, EARS & PAWS” at Muttville Senior Dog Resuce 4/3/2014

small club presents an informative lecture and discussion with dr adam piaseczny about canine skin issues – and how average folks like us can help our dogs feel better with adjustments to our dog’s diet, including adding supplements and herbs!

Topic Summary

Does your dog scoot its butt on the floor? or rub its ears? or chew its paws?
Ears, paws, and anal gland itch are often symptoms of more serious skin issues.  The root of these problems usually stem from your dog’s diet.  When the body is deprived of nutrition due to an inappropriate, incomplete, or unbalanced diet, it inevitibly causes trouble in the digestive system, which then leads to inflammation in other systems.

Dr. Adam will explain how to address symptoms early to prevent pyoderma (skin inflammation) – and more serious issues, like severe itch, self-mutilation, and generalized dermatitis (bacterial or fungal skin infections all over the body). He’ll show us how to help our dog’s body heal with improved nutrition, diet changes, food supplements/herbals, and medications.

Learn to prevent skin issues now, deal with skin that is already in trouble, and keep your dog happy and energetic with sage advice from Dr. Adam Piaseczny.
