    Default Itchy skin

    So these past few weeks my EB Mack Daddy has been really itchy and I have no clue why? I give him bendryl and feed him Fromms Grain free food, and he has never been like this. I tried giving him coconut oil but it makes his stool very runny and nasty and the fish oil pills are too big and he won't eat them. I have tried opening the pills and pouring the oil on the food but I feel like I got more on my hands then on the food. I give him a bath every 2-3 weeks.

    I am looking for any type of recommendations? Oatmeal bath?

    Hmm maybe try taking coconut oils out for now and see if that's what causing it. I used to give them ACV and Brett would just keep licking his paw so I stopped giving it to him and that helped a lot. Also it depends what kind of food they have. They used to do great ok Fromms Pork and peas but seems as if they isn't fan of it anymore so I've decided to give them diff flavor which is the Lambs and Lentils now Brett's tear stains got really bad so I have to put him back on Pork and Peas ...trial and error really

    How long has he been on that flavor of Fromms? It could be the protein... you may need to switch him to another flavor & see if you notice improvement. When Tyson is extra itchy - I bathe him in this:

    Amazon.com : Tropiclean Oxy Med Shampoo 20oz : Pet Shampoos : Pet Supplies

    Its wonderful. Don't be shocked that it doesn't sud up like regular shampoo, just massage it, and try to let it sit on him for as long as he'll allow before rinsing. Hugs to Mack Daddy.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Hey, you know what...Bella's tear stains have gotten bad again and she's licking her paws like crazy. She's also on Lamb and Lentil. I am going to switch her to something else, but I'm trying to decide. I was thinking of going to the grain free salmon Fromms. Maybe I should try Pork and Peas. I guess it's just trial and error.

    Which Fromm is he eating? Also could be environmental.... try wiping him after being outside with a cool wash cloth to lessen the allergens from staying on him and causing the itch

    I have been feeding him grain free Beef Fritta I believe, I thought it was environmental at first because he has spending alot of time at my parents place running around on their land but it has been a week or so and it hasn't changed.

    I would buy a small bag of Pork and Peas and see if the itching lessens at all. No need for transition just go right to it

    I know ever since I switched to lamb and lentil I noticed it looks bad. So I just ordered their pork and peas today. Hope it clears it up

    We use a shampoo with fatty acids (Omega 3's & 6's) called "HyLyt" from the vet. I believe Amazon has it. It definitely helps her skin.
    There are also some Omega 3's capsules called Snip Tips be Free Form that the end twists off of & they don't make a mess. We like these.
