Hello to everyone...
I'm new here, so forgive me if I do ANYTHING wrong... this time.
I own a shih tzu, she was 3 on Feb. 14th. About a year ago she started scratching and itching a lot. Now her fur is oily, and if I do not give her a bath once every 10 days she is stinky.
A friend of mine said something about using vinegar on her when I give her a bath, which just sounded odd to me, and unless I know it is safe for her I won't try that. Her fur is about 3" long or shorter at any time.
Can anyone give me some idea of what is going on with her? She never had this problem until we moved into my b/f's house. He has dogs, if that helps.
I don't know what to do at this point, and I feel so bad that she is always itchy.
***SHE DOES NOT HAVE FLEAS, I TREAT HER FOR THEM AND HAVEN'T FOUND ANY ON HER.***
Thanks for your time!
