my almost 5 month old puppy has been dealing with itchiness since I got him at 8 weeks. I took him to the Vet, they did tests/skin scrapes and ended up giving me a medicated oatmeal shampoo. I just got him fixed 2 weeks ago so I haven't been able to use the shampoo more than once(I'll be using it on him this week). I switched his food last week from Purina to a grain free brand and have been giving him fish oil as well. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with the same issues & if there's any advice you can offer I would appreciate it greatly. I also included a picture of the worst spot on him, his back leg. Thank you (Luke says thank you too) :) http://s2.postimage.org/4yr3et1at/Lukesleg.jpg
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!
That looks like Staph.
We had some of this and I fixed it with Vetericyn spray 4 times a day, chlorhexidine rinse once a day, and a salicylic acid shampoo twice a week.
