Same to Anya. She' s great right now.
Some tips here and hope everything gets OK:
*Food is very important too. Try to look info of Royal Canin Digest and skin.
*Also Benadryl for kids is fantastic to minimize the itching. Check dose with your vet. At 4 months, Hers was 2cc.
*Bath your dog with Mint, calendula, aloe vera, but the best OATMEAL shampoo. And never rub the towel when drying your dog, pat the towel so you won't irritate more the area.
*Brush constantly the coat. It seems that doing that, we stimulate follicles that brings more oil to the skin.
Good luck!
