Good advice from all. We have one that is scratching a lot and we found a hydrocortisone spray and shampoo at the store which has helped. Our dogs usually get a bath every couple weeks and we use an oatmeal shampoo unless they are licking or itching then the hydrocotisone is used. Seems to help. This is just a weaker strength of the shot from the vet. But certainly talk with the vet. as well.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

LAST WEEK ONE OF MY BABIES WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH EXCESSIVE LICKING, AND I FOUND THAT SHE ALL OVER HER BACK AND PART OF HER TUMMY. I TOOK HER RIGHT TO THE VET, WHO SAID THAT IT WAS ALLERGIES. SINCE THERE ARE A LOT OF BLOOMING THINGS IN OUR STATE RIGHT NOW, HE SAID THAT HE IS SEEING MORE ALLERGIES PATIENTS THEN USUAL THIS TIME OF YEAR. HE GAVE HER A CORTIZONE SHOT. BY THE NEXT MORNING SHE WAS NOT ITCHING ANY MORE AND NOW ALL THE RASH & SPOTS ARE GONE.

SO, MY SUGGESTION FOR YOUR BABY, IS TAKE HER TO THE DOCTOR.

HUGS,

My little boy was digging at his back. He just wouldn't stop licking. I immediately took him to the vet. I got some pills to treat the problem systemically and it helped right away. I would suggest a visit to the vet if your pup is in distress. Sometimes it's best handled by the professionals.

Hello, I have just came back to Spark today after a while away. The past week I have been having issues with my little Chi Sammy. She has developed a rash on her one leg. Two spots and she continues to lick them till they are raw. I have tried a few things on her but she licks them off. I dont want her to get sick from licking things off. I have been giving her Benedryl to help with the itchyness and bathed her. But she continues to lick. Her skin is so thin on her legs I'm afraid she will lick it clear to the bone. Any ideas or comments? Thanks!
