It could be as simple as her blowing her undercoat and going through a coat change....her age would suggest that possibility.
Also...if she is being kept indoors, where it is very warm & dry...(BINGO)?!
She may also exhibit "scratching"...because just like us....they will itch because of dry skin too!
Look into her diet as suggested, moisturize her coat and put her on some form of Omega 3 & 6, vitE & vitC.
*We mix a bottle of 1/4 deep conditioner & 3/4 water...and spritz our dogs coat(s) while brushing them everyday....yes...everyday! It helps when the weather is promoting dry skin.....so we have not had any problems with coat(s) in years. Also, they are fed a good quality diet, and spend alot of time outdoors.
If the vet cannot find any medical reason for your dogs discomfort....do not give your dog antibiotics that it may not need...you can cause a resistance to them in the future, when it MAY be needed.
