Ah! I just thought of this.....she started the scratching thing when we bought the new bag od Canidae.

We've had a bad bag one other time that affected both dogs wit horrible yuck-d. Now this?

I'm really beginning to question Canidae...

Really, lately I think all you want to is be crappy toward me. Whats your problem?

So, if you've got nothing useful to add to this thread, get the heck outa here.


Anyway, I talked to the vet, he said it could be a whole host of things that are just normal allergies to this area. They've been seeing more and more dogs come in having problems like Lizzie.
*sigh* I'm going to try another thing to see if it helps, then maybe try the shampoo and if it stills not working I guess I'll change foods.

Wow. So I'm not allowed to eat some popcorn while I watch this pan out?

I thought it was interesting that after several of us gave you suggestions, including allergies, you decided that it was most likely the food. And as far as not being helpful, look at the first two pages of this thread...

Did your vet recommend Benedryl or any other medications? I think CharliesMom has some experience in dealing with Charlie's chronic allergies.

Good luck.

No, she didn't. She didn't even say to come in. And I totally trust my vet.

Why would it be allergies when (for my area) it's not even the prime time for allergies?

And it started right when we bought the new bag of food?

Ragweed, for example, is highly allergenic to dogs and blooms in August-September in Arkansas.

Main symptoms of Ragweed allergy? Itchy skin.

Why would it not affect her before this year?

Liz, not jumping on Hershel's side... but sometimes that happens.

For instance... I started a thread while back about Kona's skin. Her skin was FINE until a few months ago.

Then it all blew up. Her skin got bad, and I took her to the vet. Turns out it WAS allergies. They told me to give her a weekly bath with medicated shampoo and benedryl when it flares up.

So far, so good. She is doing better already

I'm nit sure why it happens like this, but it can. That's what I'm trying to say here.
