• My dog and I got a bad case of chiggers from a recent hike. What is the best relief to ease her itching and biting?

    Hi Alivin,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. Dogs do not usually get chigger bites so there may be something else causing the itching. This can include fleas, skin mites, infection, allergies, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her itching and the treatment she needs after they have examined her.
