You really should take your dog to a vet to determine the cause for the biting and scratching. Have you bathed your dog recently in a different shampoo? You can get shampoos from your vet to help this depending on the cause of the problem. Your pet may have allergy's to anything - depending on the weight, age, etc., of your dog you could give him Benadryl caplets, the pink caplets, not the sinus and cold Benadryl, according to his weight, etc. Hope this helps a bit. Try brushing your pet and make sure he does not have any open sores or bites on his skin under his fur, and check to see if he is biting at his feet as well. Try a calming bath as well, with a dog shampoo that is soothing. Do not use people shampoo or household soaps on your dog.
My Dog Is Scratching A Lot But Does Not Have A Flea Problem, Is There Something Homemade That I Could Use To Help Him?
You can give your dog Benadryl it is one mg per pound of body weight that is what my vet had told me and if it doesn't work you can change the food I have had to use Natural Balance Duck and Potato or Nature's Recipe venison and brown rice it is a little more expensive but worth it for your dog to be happy and healthy.
My five week old puppy scratches all the time. I gave her two baths in Dawn dish soap thinking it was fleas. She has no flea but while I was checking her I found spots of missing fur and tons of scabs. She flakes eye booger looking scabes. What should I do?
Try using Murphy's wood oil soap instead of shampoo when you bath your dog. It sounds crazy but it works miracles. It won't harm your dog! Hope this helps you.
I have been told that a dog should have there dog food changed once n a while. I am not saying that this will help but it is worth a try.
I had the same problem come up in a dog 6 years old. I believe he was allergic to the food that I had given him (different brand than usual), and while Benadryl was recommended, I discontinued it, switched back to previous brand of dog food, and the itching has stopped.
