We have a 1 1/2 yr. old mixed Malamute/Akita/Huskey. We reside in the panhandle area of FL. Our pup constantly scratches, even after bathes. We use an oatmeal shampoo, but the minute she is out of the tub, she is scratching. Now she has started pulling her hair out. Especially on her butt area. From behind she looks like a baboon with a long tail. Also her hair is thin, unlike her parents, which both had beautiful thick coats. Are we doing something wrong? I fear the climate might be a problem. Or her diet, but we try to feed her what we consider the best. Would benedryl help her? How much do you give a 70lb dog?
This could be fleas??? Do you see any fleas?? Try advantage for fleas. This could also be an allergy or mange. Either way, I recommend a vet visit. vetcare
