|If the scratching is excessive, I would consult a vet. Allergies can be contact, inhalant or food related and the symptoms can vary from watery eyes, to paw licking or biting, to scratching, ears, sides, chest wherever, and butt scooting. Allergies can be one of the most frustrating things to deal with since there can be so many sources. If you noticed the scratching coincided with a change in food, that is a starting point. Is there a new ingredient in the new food? Also keep in mind that dogs can beome allergic to something they have been around or been eating, over time.
My Frenchies can't have grains or they get itchy. They also experience some seasonal allergies when the pollen count is high which we deal with by rinsing (no rubbing and no shampoos) with cool water whenever they come in from outside. Good luck, I hope you pinpoint the problem because it is miserable to be itchy.
