My 9 week old has very dry skin and is constantly itching! Her nails are so sharp that she breaks skin especially around her floppy ears. There is a dry bald spot on her outer elbow on her front legs. She does have a doc's appointment for it tomorrow but would like ideas as to what it may be! I am already using a topical over the counter cream 'Petco's Hydrocortizone and also adding salmon oil to her food to help with her coat. I have never had this issues with my other dogs before but they have all been considerably heavy coated. Can someone give me ideas??? I was told vinegar and water mixture spray to clean her scabs I treid it but it just made her want to itch more!I did wash her down with oatmeal shampoo for dry skin but it isnt showing an improvement.
I would love some input!
