I read earlier posts on skin problems for Skipperke's.

Shadow is going to be 7 years old this August and he started having itchy flakey skin.

The pet store said to try a new food which we did but no change.

I have sense changed his food to homemade dog food from myself. Still no change....I am now going to take away all wheat and go from there. Just like the drs do for us humans.

His dr gave him a shot that took it away for a couple of weeks but it has sense returned.
