I have a 2 1/2 yr old Cocker Spaniel that scratches a lot and chews on her front legs. She will also go thru periods of licking herself as well. She is a well-groomed dog and we have had her checked for fleas. Is there anything I can try or do to aleviate her itching? I have tried a prescription lotion from the vet, conditioning, she eats no table food, all to no avail...could it be allergies to something? Help!!
Yes, this could be allergies. There are many different meds your vet can prescribe for allergies. Corticosteroids and/or antihistamines are usually used. Have your vet examine your pet, because allergies is just one possibility out of many. vetcare
