An Itchy Dog
Not that the dog is the itch hahahaha but my dog has been scratching too much lately. 3 weeks ago when she was brought to me I noticed that she was scratching too and when I closely investigated I saw ticks on her. The following morning I went to the vet and he prescribed me Frontline Plus spray. For awhile it seems it was taking effect no fleas and no ticks and just lately she has been scratching like crazy. Could it be allergies? If it is allergy. allergy to what? I feed her the same food the breeder gave her and has not switched her yet to Eukanuba. I change her bed every week and the house is very clean. So what could be the culprit?
Well I tried to not get her medications just yet. I gave her an oatmeal bath instead. I just placed 1 cup of plain oatmeal on the blender until it was powdery and then placed her in her tub and add lukewarm water on it and that was all. I am going to see if this works. Well for now she isn't scratching but I'm gonna give it 3 more days if she keeps scratching again I would surely be bringing her to her vet for a check up. This could be something else.
