I have a pug with itchy skin, which is dry and very smelly. This is probably due to allergies. What kind of herbs would be good to use for him?

As the condition of the skin often mirrors the internal workings of the body, the best place to start would be by putting your dog on a good, homemade diet. Please see the posting on this website (www.richters.com) entitled, "Aging Dog with Arthritis" for recipe resources. In the meantime, also see the posting "Dog and Allergies" for suggestions on how to reduce itchiness by using herbal teas.
