I would stop washing her and switch her food, like others mentioned in your first thread.

I'm sticking by my suggestion of switching the food to a higher quality grain-free
one, washing less and adding good quality fish oil. If you follow through you will
see results, but bare in mind it takes some time.

You can also try giving her supplements like nupro or missing link. Tiny has dry skin and was losing hair on her throat and chest, i went to petsmart to buy missing link plus cuz it was on sale and i had a $3 off coupon. Tiny's been on it for a week and her hair is growing back already! Before that, tiny was on fish oil but it didn't help much, it just gave her some shine.

I agree the salmon oil and a grain free food. You can also give her virgin coconut oil but they need a very small amount. Try not to bathe her too often, that dries her skin more.
