Lotus has been scratching like mad at the bottom of her rib cage like mad it's doing my head in. I've looked for fleas on both girls, none she has no dry skin is fed raw and has no reactions is given salmon oil every other day!

What's causing it?? She's 16 weeks I wondered if it was her coat coming in?? I remember daisy being a big scratcher at this age but she wa always sick so never thought about it??

Last resort is smothering her in coconut oil and giving her a bath.. Lol she HATES baths haha

Any ideas???

Lily scratches a lot when she needs a brushing and her fur is coming out,maybe she was bitten by a midgy thing .

Whenever my girls shed, they itch - and both are shedding and itching right now! Usually a bath helps

Nah no chewing it isn't an allergy as she has no other symptoms I've bathed her and thoroughly checked her Not even a speck of dry skin I think it's her adult coat coming in
