Bailey was checked for fleas or any other bugs and nothing was found. But she scratches alot. I got some shampoo that says it will help but wondered if anyone else had any ideas to help her??

Great lol. The reason we got it was because of the small kernels. What do you suggest as a better option and small bites?

Doesn't look like I can get either of those. After doing some research I do see that the dog food is not the best. I'll be going to pet store later today and buying something better. Thanks;)

Paco was itching alot and since I started him on missing link he has improved quite a bit maybe you need to supplement with some omega oils.

THe itching NEVER stops!!!!!!!!

I know the Dermatologist said it could take up to a year for Midgie to get some relief, but the itching just never stops. I feel so bad for her. I feed her THK and ZP (Lamb). Had to order some more ZP and they sent me the wrong one (Venison & FIsh). Don't think Midgie's tolerating it well. Might be causing some of the itching. Don't give it to her every day.
We're leaving on a camping trip to Florida in about a week and I anxious to see if there's going to be any difference in Midgie's itching once we hit Florida. I'm expecting the itching to diminish which will convince & verify environmental allergies.
The Dermatologist wanted to put Midgie on Royal Canine canned. I was impressed that it wasn't Science Diet Prescription and that it was a better quality of food. I declined the RC as I just spent a lot of money on THK & ZP, but I might have to reconsider the Dermatologist request if the scratching doesn't get better soon.
Midgie's been taking immunotherapy shots every 3 days for the past 3 months (what a pain). She's finally reached a bench mark of being on vile 3 (strongest dose) and only has to get shot once a week. She seems to be tolerating it well. Dermatologist wants to see her 3 months, so when we get back from vaca. I schedule an appointment.
The Aveeno Soak Bath Treatments are definitely helping and I've fallen behind. She gets one weekly & I've missed last week.
Midgie's so funny! She doesn't like taking her Benedryl, but I think she knows the importance some how. I usually mix her 1st dose up in her food in the morning & her 2nd dose in her food in the afternoon/early evening. If I don't put it in her evening food, she'll start asking me for it.
