MIya is still always scratching herself. IDK what to do! She is always grooming and I notice she kicks her leg back to scratch always. She's on flea/tick meds..
When I stopped the benadryl it got a bit worse. If I don't trim her nails, they aren't sharp so she doesn't cut herself up...but I have to do her nails eventually and I'm worried she will cut herself again.
Reminder..I'm feeding Fromms and ZP, along with wellness wet-grain free. I mix her Nupra in when the wellness. She also gets daily fish oil.
Fromm is great, but the food I had most success with for dogs with allergies
is Acana Pacifica. You must try an elimination diet, feed only that for 6
weeks, nothing else, no wet food, no treats, nothing but Acana Pacifica.
And stop adding the fish oil for now. I am an advocate for fish oil, but you
must be careful what kind of fish oil you give, they are not all created equal.
Acana has been literally a miracle cure for our rescues, not once had I a dog
that was allergic to fish, but it is possible however, just not as common. If
after the 6 weeks Miya has shown no improvement try a lamb diet instead,
yet again for 6 weeks, and see how she does.
Also I recommend you stop using fabric softener if you do, and use very little
detergent for blankets and beds that Miya lies on, it could be irritating her and
causing itching as well. Do not bathe her more than once per month, and
make sure to use a very gentle shampoo. By the way flea-control products
can also cause irritation. Which ones are you using?
Of course if you can see a vet it would be great to do some skin or blood
tests, to see if it's allergies or perhaps a yeast infection.
I just wanted to add, if it's at all possible for you to do I would highly
recommend looking into raw, if it's not an option try what I mentioned above.
Best of luck. I know it can be frustrating, I hope it clears up very soon!
