13yo Westie has extremely itchy muzzle!
My old West Highland White Terrier has never had issues with his skin at all but has always has been prone to bad ear infections that have to be controlled with cleaning and medical drops. He's never had dry skin, allergies etc. But over the past year he has began to itch his muzzle like crazy! I've had him to the vet & groomers multiple times (Which has been a fortune) and neither can put their finger on what the cause is. The skin on his muzzle doesn't look irritated or sore but he itches and rubs it ALL the time to the point where the hair on his muzzle's being burnt away with all the friction and sometimes he even cuts his nose. He is currently being fed on Wag Complete and when he goes to the groomers I make sure they bathe him in his medicated shampoo and don't use any perfume-y products on him. I'm honestly at my wits end and just want releif for my poor dog!
If anyone has any suggestions or even answers for me it would be greatly appreciate, thank you! :)
