Whats the best thing for very dry and itchy skin for a small puppy?
My moms little puppy is about 6 months and and she is a cairn terrier/Yorkie Mix and she has the worse dry itchy skin you could ever imagine. I tried oatmeal shampoo and that does not help. It is not fleas either. She has white flakes on her skin because her skin is so dry. She goes half way under the couch and itches her back against the couch for a long time. I feel so bad for her so please what is the best thing for very dry and very itchy skin? Thanks.
Has the food been switched recently? If so, she might be allergic to something in the food.
It’s common For dogs that are itchy to be allergic to the food.
Get a natural type food, with as many natural ingredients as possible. That could resolve the whole issue.
Fish oil pill are good too. But not sure if 6 months is too young for that or too small (check with a vet first). I give my doberman a fish oil pill a day, helps her coat be shiny and she used to get flaky skin. But I think it might be the food if it’s really that bad.
