Our dog has been constantly scratching since we have gotten her. Only recently it has gotten to the point where she has gotten swollen and also losing her hair in patches where she itches. She has been tested for mange (sp?) and it was negative. She does not have fleas. We suspect she may be allergic to something in the house, or even the cats (we have 3). She also has very oily skin. We are unsure if this is because of her breed (she is a mutt, suggested that she may be part Australian cattle dog) or if it comes from her repeated scratching and licking. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
If your vet has examined her and can not help then I recommend a referral to a dermatologist. vetcare
