My Shih Tzu is 12 and she has been dealing with allergies. After many times to the vet and not finding a solution to help her I am writing to someone out there that had the same problem.
The vet said that giving her fish and potatoes (we eat only fish) and stick to that diet will help. After about 5 weeks she is not getting better. She smells terribly now and she is scratching her bottom. Her beautiful tail has no hair on the back.
Can somebody help me, please? Thank you!
