Default Shampoo for itchy skin?

Just adopted our 3rd shelter pup. She is apprx 4 months old and is solid white with pink skin. Our vet gave her a clean bill of health. Gave her a bath using Mane n Tail shampoo. Since then she has been scratching and biting herself. Here skin looks healthy with no flaking or breaks in the skin. I am looking for recommendations for a shampoo or perhaps a supplement that will help her itchy condition. Thanks!

As far as shampoo , I use and love Cowboy Magic Rosewater Shampoo. It really moisturises both skin and coat and they are super soft and shiny after the bath. As far as supplements, you can give fish oil either capsules or pour over the food type. I have been using Omega 3-6-9 capsules from Springtime Inc.( Its a blend of fish oil,Organic fish oil and Borage seed oil.

For shampoo I would recommend Why Itch by B3 Salon Products. It has worked wonders on client dogs for me and the high concentration makes it extremely economical (gallon size dilutes 40 to 1!).

Earthbath has an oatmeal and aloe shampoo - works wonders on some of my fosters! Even those with major medical skin issues & on meds for it. A lot of petsmarts are selling Earthbath products now

I use Erthbath oatmeal shampoo and conditioner. When you do shampoo, after applying to wet fur, wait for 10min or so and then rinse it off until you hear the squeaky sound.Leftover soap can trigger itch in skin too.

Also, after shampoo,I use conditioner and it makes my dog fur very soft to touch.Oatmeal is very gentle to skin and,I love using them.

You can find it at petco.

I use Malaseb shampoo for my westie who suffers from itchy flaky skin she is also a rescue - it works brilliantly. You leave it on the skin for 10 mins and rinse. She has gone from being nearly bald with bleeding skin from itching to now having a lovely thick coat and hardly ever itching

If it's due to dry skin, supplements like a raw egg or a bit of canned salmon would help.
