|Hi Winston. Cooper has the same problem. He hasn't itched himself bald, but he was itching alot. And licking his feet. I had switched from a not so great food to Candiae Lamb and Rice. After a while I noticed his itching wasn't any better and it was actually kind of worse. I thought maybe the lamb was to rich for him or maybe he is allergic to lamb. I switched to Canidae Chicken and Rice. No change. So, I bought Natural Balance Duck and Potato. He LOVES it and his itching is getting better. He loves it so much that we drove 77 miles to the nearest pet store and bought a 30 pound bag. I know you're supposed to give it a month to see any changes, but I have noticed a difference. He started it on November 5th. It's a great food and I'm so glad he likes it. He actually dives into his dish! And I too know that it wasn't fleas on Cooper because I took him to the vet about his itching and he looked for fleas and found none. He said to continue with Benadryl, but it didn't seem to be working anymore so I stopped giving it to him. Someday when I can afford it, I will have an allergy test done. Plus, it's really cold here now, so that also could be helping.
