I am new to this website. I was just wondering if you have found a solution to your GSD's itching? Mine is itchy & biting herself so bad she is starting to loose fur in those spots. We have taken her to the vet to rule out fleas/ mites - she has none. We thought maybe it was a food allergy so we switched her over to Acana fished based food & add fish oil to her food once a day - hasn't helped. We have tried giving her benadryl / claratin - hasn't helped either. We got rid of all her treats and give her blueberries & carrots or her food as treats. We live in Ontario and have had the heat in the house on all winter, when I noticed the itching I turned the heat down but that hasn't helped either. We even tried giving her an aveeno oatmeal bath to soothe the itching and that hasn't helped either. Any advice you can give to that might help is greatly appreciated! Hope your pup is doing better!
