I’m sure you’ve heard about the Thundershirt for dogs with anxiety. They help keep the dog calm by applying a light but constant pressure while they are wearing it. It’s a similar feeling to when you were a kid and got tucked into bed really tight. Remember that? I really have never thought about getting one
If you follow Itchy Frenchie on Instagram or Facebook, then you’ve probably already seen this picture of Norman from this past Thursday night. After dinner, we noticed that his right eye was swollen. We gave him a dose of Benadryl and the swelling subsided within the hour, but we have no idea what caused it. We
Here’s a short update on Norman. He went to the vet on Tuesday for a normal checkup and teeth cleaning. He was also getting his next Cytopoint injection. However, as you may have guessed, many of Norman’s vet visits aren’t very “normal.” Mid-morning we got a phone call to let us know that Norman had

And so far, it’s been great! We enjoy hearing from you and your pups. Whether it’s through this site, Facebook, Twitter,
Yesterday, we took Norman to the vet for a few different reasons. One, he was due for another Cytopoint shot. But the main reason for the visit was due to some scaly, red areas on his back. He had that infected, yeasty smell again so we knew something was up. Turns out, he has mites.
It’s that time of year again…Happy Holidays! Those Black Friday deals are right around the corner. In fact a lot of the discounts have already started. But first, a quick update on Norman. He had a Cytypoint shot a couple weeks ago, and he’s still taking half an Apoquel pill most days. But this round
Last week on our Instagram account, I posted a photo of Norman and asked if anyone had any DIY home remedies for itchy dogs. As you probably know, we’ve tried pretty much every possible medication available to help him with his allergies. We’ve had some luck with them, but nothing consistent. Since we received a
