Re: hound wont stop itching and nawing

If he is constantly chewing he has a problem, could be an allergy or something else. If he was mine he would go to a vet where scrappings can be taken and looked at under a microscope.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Does the feed you use have beef in it? I had a dog with that problem once and it was a beef allergy, switched to chicken and rice feed and problem solved. My vet said that is a common occurrence with allergies to beef.

Re: hound wont stop itching and nawing

I've posted this before but incase you don't see it. Make sure the food you are feeding is a good food. If your not sure what is good as the pet or feed store clerk. I feed exclusive and taste of the wild and my dogs do very well. Also add 1 teaspoon of oil (veg. cooking. fish etc..) to the food once a day. Use an oatmeal shampoo to sooth the skin now. If this doesn't help give benadryl, for dosage just think of what you'd give that size human. Labs and other bigger dogs give 2 pills 3x a day beagles or terriers 1 pill 3 x a day. My bassets takes 2 pills 3x a day when allergeys flair. You cna also apply gold bond powder to the skin to help sooth it right away.
