    Another thought... What are you using to bathe him? I wonder if it is too harsh for a tiny puppy? Best wishes!

    Bentley had food allergies. So far the only thing he's been able to tolerate without and flare ups is Nitro Lamb & Rice. We also make sure to use an oatmeal shampoo when he gets a bath. Poor guy! I hope he gets relief soon! Best of luck.

    That's actually a great question about the detergent, I hadn't thought of that. My boyfriend and I use different laundry detergents so it depends who washes his bedding and blankets. He uses Tide of some kind and I have sensitive skin so I use ALL free and clear. Do you think it could be the Tide?

    Also, I have no idea if this matters but he LOVES to be outside. If it is nice out he can spend hours outside, last week he spend a lot of time going outside and loves rolling around in the grass/leaves, normal puppy play. I was thinking allergies which is why I took him to the vet last week but my vet is convinces it's just itchy dry skin.

    Could be the Tide... heck I itch on that stuff! But, it most likely is the food, get him on a better food preferably something that is grain free ! Eukanuba really is not a good food... years is was, now it is just all filler and great advertising

    Hi Marlene, we use the Braggs Organic apple cider vinegar, with the mother in it, it has a brown sediment at the bottom, you have to shake it before using, and store it in the fridge once its opened. I buy it at Nutrition House for $9.99 a bottle lasts a long time, but you can also buy ACV at the grocery store in the health food section or the Organic section. Regular ACV is fine to use too, you will still get the health benefits.
