He has itched like crazy, it's gotten worse lately, where if you touch him anywhere, he kinda freezes up and acts like he's being scratched (bad analogy). He has some black powering effects on his skin, but no red rashes, or pustules. I can't really SEE a rash, but the instant he get excited about new people or something like that, he goes into itching mode. We take him on walks and to the dog park, but he itches at the dog park too. It's not a constant itching because I... more

ORIGINAL: sophia [ ] Welcome to the board My dog used to itch 80% of the time also (and that was a good day) kidding, I think 80% is accurate.

When dog scratching gets out of hand, it is often the result of allergies to food or environmental triggers, including mold and pollen. Dogs may also develop a skin irritation called contact dermatitis when they encounter substances like pesticides or soap. Boredom or anxiety

I got my dog from a shelter about 8 months ago, she's a year and a half old right now. I've gotten comments from people who think she's a whippet, a pit, a shepherd, a boxer, and any combo of the above. Any suggestions anyone?

I was told by a few people Belgian Shepherd/Pit mix...based on her looks and attitude, I'm thinking that's the closest I've gotten so far.

Jessie has killed and ate rabbits several times without any ill effects. I worry because she has chronic pancreatitis, but the bunnies don't seem to make her sick. I hope your friends dog gets better soon.
Wed, Sep 4 2013 1:00 PM
The dog could be sick from something the rabbit may have eaten. Also I know if I eat something I don't normally eat it can upset my stomach too. The antibiotics should help and a bland diet, if the dog doesn't start acting normal in a couple days call the vet.

We had been called home early from a vacation by our pet sitter. When I returned home, she had crawled into a large hole on our property and was literally on her last legs. She couldn't stand, she was feverish, her eyes were glazed over and dull, and bugs were crawling on her. She barely recognized me... more

I got my dog Damien back in November 2012 when he was 71/2 months old. He is now 2 yrs. People would ask what kind of dog he is and I would just say shepherd mix. His height: 21-22 in and weight: 50lbs. He is all black with a white blaze on chest and white tip on the tail. His ears are erect but one is floppy. What is your guess on the type of breed? http://community.dog.com/cfs-filesystemfile.ashx/__key/telligent-evolution-components-attachments/01-39955-00-00-00-99-68-02/WP_5F00_20140724_5F00_002... more

He's not allergic to any of his food/treats, so we were thinking he had some dry skin issues. The supplement worked. I forget the name of it, but we put 1 dropperful into his food daily. His coat is pretty, but we noticed that it became brilliant and he scratched less and less. We ran out! I want another oil supplement for him. Which one do you use? Thanks! [ ]
