|Does anyone have a dog with them? And if so, how do you deal with them?
I've officially ruled out food allergies, flea allergies, and just plain ol' dry skin. Okami gets coconut oil, salmon oil, plus she's on a raw diet which all had a dramatic effect on her skin as she did have dry skin issues, but now that has been cleared up.
Still, she is itchy. Behind her ears, chewing on her feet/legs and hips/butt area and I've determined it must be seasonal allergies as this only comes about during the summer/autumn months, plus seasonal allergies are not uncommon in her breed.
She has been on prednisone twice from the vet, once this year and once last year. It did wonders for the itching, stopped it almost right away, but then it wears off and she's back to scratching. I'm not sure if it's safe to continue giving her prednisone continuously, so I'm trying to see if there's anything else I could do to bring her some relief until the weather gets colder and her allergies dissipate.
Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks in advance everyone
