Skin Allergies?

1129 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jsawvel
I have a 9 year old female cocker spaniel who has had skin allergies pretty much her whole life. A while back she started chewing at the hind leg and between her paws. She'd chew so bad it would break open the skin and bleed. We recently got her shaved down because she was getting mats in her hair.

She still chews occasionally but not as severe as she was... now we are finding this little white spots that look like big dandruff that is matted to her skin.

Anyone that could help me out I would be more than thankful. We've been to the vet and were told to give her Benadril (spell) We also use hypo-allergenic shampoo on her.

Usually skin problems are caused by digestion problems. So, you should work on improving the health of your dog´s digestion and liver.

You may consider probiotic supplements.

Also, dogs aren´t designed to eat grains, which are basically grass seed.

I have heard a lot of good things about raw meat diets for dogs.
