Hey! Sorry for the itchies, poor Lola. But the itchies is something we deal with a LOT with Cleo since moving to IL, the grass here just does not agree with her one bit. I keep a shirt on her and she doesn't break through the skin or get her dirty nails in there to infect anything. Plus, it keeps the tall grasses off her belly so less itching there too! Just a few tips on how I try to handle Cleo's itchies, hope it helps you some.
