I know this is an old thread but in case some is searching . It could be thier dog food. I switched mine to science diet sensitive skin and stomach and it was like a week later and he no longer itched him self raw or got ear infections. The vet can give some nice shampoo tho that really seemed to help , all the OTC anti-itch/hotspot never worked. I tried DIY shampoos and treatment with no luck. No human food either , unless you can figure out the allergy . I would love to pinpoint my dogs allergy. Last time I gave him boiled chicken and rice he blew his butt everywhere. I do mean everywhere. My orger dog got in the trash tho and my allergy pup got in on that and it was all over again . Now I just have put a cone on his head and try to find temp relief for him like benedryl -sigh-. Oh dog chow food worked too . It's cheap food but I've given him all sorts of high quality food with no luck besides science diet sensitive skin and stomach .
Anyways I wish I could find a better limited ingredient diet for him :/ he has a ruff life lol. Good luck to talk hope it helped. My vet just wanted to leave him on meds and topical a forever . So I fixed the problem.
Here's my baby...
I have a 4 month red nose as well "Achilles", and he is being treated for Dermodetic mange. He completed a 20 day Chephlexin and a bath every 2/3 days with Johnson's baby chamomile shampoo to sooth the itching. He gets wiped down from head to tail with a clean wash cloth every time he goes outside. Also I give him either 12.5 mg of benadryl children's chew-able or 5mg of Zyrtec every 12 hours. My husband feels I am over medicating but he still scratches and he has a few bald spots. My most recent purchase is "organic" apple cider vinegar shampoo for pets to see if that helps. In addition to all of this I have spent over 600$ in veterinary expenses between visits, medication and supplies. Will this end and is there anything else I can do to make him feel better. Oh and did I mention he's TEETHING!!!!
We have an itchy Shih-Tzu who is severely allergic to fleas. Our vet put him on two flea pills; Trifexis once a month and then a different flea preventative two weeks after that. We also wash him every other week with gentle flea shampoo. First we had to get ride of the skin infection from fleas, with antibiotic treatment, but he's lots better now, and not chewing himself bloody anymore. If he smells like old nasty corn chips, our vet said the smell is from infection.
I think he is suffering from any kind of skin allergies. you can use Dermagic dog allergy shampoo, its a best shampoo for pet skin care.
he may be itchy because he scratched.
interupt his scratching, and rub that spot. dont use your claws.
it's like telling a kid "Dont pick that Scab!! it will never heal if you pick at it."
