the itching started over a month after starting her on raw, and none of the protein sources have changed, its always been turkey hearts, chicken backs, and lamb scrap/fat. Im not sure how I could do 1 protein as I use chicken for the RMB and turkey for the muscle meat.... Ground chicken is terribly expensive. Maybe Ill go back to just chicken leg quarters for both. Meh. SUch a puzzle when I dont know WHAT is causing it

Allergies are a possibility, but what could she be touching with her hock and stifle that isnt touchign the rest of her?

She's a blue Ambully, right? I would rule out allergies and mange first.

Also it doesn't have to be a contact allergy, my wheaten had food issues that manifested in hair loss above the tail and ear infections.

I have a friend who's dog is allergic to chicken, rubbed the fur right off his face around his eyes permanently from all the scratching he did in the past. Once they eliminated chicken from his diet no more itching.

How old is she?

A lot of puppies develop demodex mange easily.. But usually is around the face/ears. Boosting her immune system with some vit C could do wonders!
