Scratching

Post by Zrinko13 on Tue Oct 02 2018, 15:59

Hi!
For a long time Moa (14 month old) have a problem with scratching. She usually scratching ears and neck often to the blood. It takes for a long time we've tried all of the food changes (Acan, M.Muhle, Josera and home made barf) bathing shampoo, changing walking collars.....
Even a veterinarian does not know what it might cause.
all advice are welcome
Tnx

Have you looked at allergy possibles other than food? Dogs, like us, can be allergic to a wide range of triggers, including some fabrics, chemicals used in cleaning products, plants such as grasses, etc.

I'd look at things like the soaps, cleaning products, etc. you use as a first port of call. Also, have you discussed allergy testing with your vet? Also, when you tried raw did you add anything, and which meats did you use? And how long are you trying something before you change?

Agree with Liz - it may not be food.

Also, how often are you bathing her? Bathing too often can dry out the skin & cause irritation.

Okay, but once a month is still too often to bathe a dog. Has your vet suggested it?

Person, I wouldn't bathe more than twice a year, but I'd use wipes to get anything obnoxious off!
