As an animal lover, Kate was the perfect person to team up with Zoetis, a leading global animal health company. Walsh shares her first-hand experienced of seeing her dog suffer from the itching problems. But, she thanks Zoetis, and is excited to be partnering with them where she can help spread the word about "Itchy Pet Awareness Month" and skin allergies in dogs.

The dog-mom said, "When I first noticed Rosie's symptoms, I decided to take her to the veterinarian – and I'm so glad that I did! I was relieved to find a treatment that stopped her allergic itch at the source. APOQUEL has helped bring Rosie's A-Game back; she's now able to enjoy long walks and giving high-tens to new friends."

Millions of dogs suffer from skin problems and it is one of the main reasons for veterinary visits. Still, many owners fail to gaze the severity of the issue and do not seek medical help.

The Private Practice alum explained, "Zoetis is doing this thing called MyDogsaGame, which is really fun. It's … making people aware because allergies are different with dogs. They don't [get] a runny nose and eyes and sneezing. It's skin and ears. … So it's just like, when you see your dog itch or scratch or lick a hotspot, that's usually a sign there's a problem. Go to your veterinarian, see what they say."
