Puppy is itchy itchy itchy and has got some really dry skin and dandruff.
I'm somewhat convinced its due to a combination of air conditioning and grass allergy and something else. I'm pretty sure its not fleas because a)no visible bites or flea dirt, she's always been on a treatment *and* was recently checked at the vet and b)I'm the kind of person bugs will fly a mile to bite, and I'm bite-free.
She was showing some grass allergy symptoms earlier this summer.
Puppy has sibo, and I think some general food sensitivities. She eats Nature's Variety raw, which has vitamin e, flax seed, fish oil, etc. Its 6-8% fat, which seemed like a lot to me - but still, dry skin, itchy. She just finished a course of rimadyl, and someone told me that could cause itchiness in some dogs, too.
Baths are currently not an option due to a leg injury, and DH is wildly, projectile vomiting allergic to fish. Even the mild smell of fish gets this reaction -
. So we'd like to avoid fish products as well as kelps and seaweeds.
Any ideas? Tips? Thanks as always for your help! B
