How can I prevent General Itchiness
My 9 year-old GSD always scratches himself a few times a day. On his back, behind his ears, bites his leg, etc. As soon as he scratches I immediately examine him for fleas or rashes. But always find nothing suspicious.
I have checked for fleas and his diet is lamb/rice based which doesn't seem to be the cause.
His skin is very pale-pinkish underneath his coat and wonder if he is genetically itchy such as having rosacea in humans. I spread hydrocortisone on his skin to make him feel better but would like to know if anyone knows how to stop the symptoms internally such as a food additive or supplement.
