My dog, a black lab, will bite and scratch at her skin. When I comb her, she has sores and flaky skin. She is also begining to lose hair in these areas. What can I do to make her stop this habit or what products can I use to make her skin less dry.
First, check your pet for fleas. If your pet has fleas I recommend any flea shampoo and Advantage or Frontline. An allergy can also cause the itch. Try Benadryl 25 mg 2 x daily, Derm Caps daily (this is a vitamin with omega fatty acids) and Oatmeal shampoo. Good luck, vetcare
