My 7 year old Cairn Terrier has dry, crusty, foul smelling skin. She doesn't scratch excessively, but she smells so bad! Is this mange or sebhorrea? She seems to like it when I scrub the flaky areas. What kind of non-prescription shampoo (besides oatmeal) will help? I really want to kill this problem so she can rejoin the family. Thanks.
I would need to see her to make a diagnosis on the type of skin prolem your pet has. I recommend thet you bring your pet to a vet dermatologist. Try a chlorhexadine based shampoo in the meantime. Good luck, vetcare
