Theres nothing to be seen on her skin but i'm a bit worried in case its internal problem eg.blood disorder or something.
Your thoughts please
Hi Brian and a warm welcome.
Poor food is one of the main causes for itching/allergies so by feeding fish4dogs is a good move. Its one of the better ones. Even better is to use a holistic food like Burns or Natural Dog Food - holistic is the best way to go and Sue on here (holmfirth bailey) is an advocate for NDF and I and others on here feed this food. There is nothing bad in this food whatsoever and everything is 100% natural and no fillers, colourants or additives in it at all - no artificial ingredients, free from wheat, dairy and soya, hypoallergenic, no by-products or derivatives. 100% human grade ingredients and rich in fresh british meats ............
- or contact Sue on here in the food section - you will see where to go Im sure
Fish4dogs is good but this food is even better.
Also I would suggest you buy some Thornit - its a miracle powder - its mainly for the ears but bear with me whilst I explain. First by using a small amount of thornit in your pooche's ears each month, he/she will never have any ear problems - even vets dont have this and its fantastic and others on here will tell you the same. The point Im getting to is this - put some thornit in a food bag, put poochie's paw into it - hold the bag closed against his leg/s and shake - the thornit will cover his lower leg and foot and if the itching is in this area, it will rid the itch - you may have to do this each day until it ceases. If on the upper leg, rub some into the affected area where its itchy and even on the tummy area.
