Default dog scraches it side

my small dog was scratching it side/chest area often. so I gave it a good bath and found a few fleas. two more baths later and finding no fleas she still scratches the same spot. i can't see any thing that would cause her to scratch. I think it time for a vet checkup. she was just in and got all the shots and checkup.

Try changing her food.

I use Science Diet or Blue Buffalo.

Last time I found a brand at PetSmart that has breed specific diets. Royal Canin

Weíve had several cockers with wheat and corn allergies.

We used to feed Royal Canin for cockers but it seemed to give them the runs.

Weíve fed 4HEALTH Chicken and Rice or Chicken and vegetables the last couple of years. No itches, shiny coat and no runs. We get it a Tractor Supply.

Thanks to cheap dog food producers, who use those ingredients, veterinarians make lots of money treating pet allergies.

My thought too.

Walter, our rescue dog, was chewing on her front leg. Diagnosed with allergies. She is wearing a "cone of shame" and has an anti-biotic spray that we apply a couple times a day. Vet said we could give her a 1/2 Benadryl 2 times each day, but we have not been doing that. Dosage of Benadryl is based on dogs weight, vet calculated the dose.

I understand about 80% of house pets have some sort of allergy whether seasonal or ongoing. I have 2 frmerl cats that donít seem to be bothered but I have one male cat that loses his hair once a year and amazingly it all grows back. I Canít think of the name of that drug the vet gives him . APOQUEL. Itís a miracle!
