I'm pretty sure the ideal is 40 to 60%. 18 seems really low. I have noticed more itching with Indie lately - she's not tearing out her coat or anything severe, but it seems more frequent that she stops what she's doing and scratches various parts for a half minute or so. I just switched her to Diamond Naturals after a months-long struggle to find something she liked. Now I'm trying to figure out if it's the dry winter air (we have NG heat too) or the food. I hope not the food since it seems to be the only one she really likes. I haven't checked my humidity level in the house lately - maybe I should.
