    this looks like the beginning of staph infection. try to bring her immune system up a bit with a dollop of yogurt at one meal. healthier food, and dry those scabs up. If the scabs are growing, it's a staph infection. wipe coco down with a damp towel everyday to keep the dander off. Put something on the spots that will dry them out. nothing too heavy. Take a dab of that shampoo your vet gave you and put a dab of it on each scab. that should dry them out too. please keep me posted.

    Something that she is exposed to is aggravating her. In my opinion bland diet is needed. And after things clear maybe a change of food if she doesn't like it.

    Which flavour hunny...they do 2 grain free choices. Lamb and veg and turkey and veg. We had problems with those with rice in and the turkey too so went with the lamb x

    Also wondering if you changed washing powder...I use fairy on lucy's bedding cos it's none bio and no abric conditioner either.

    I agree give her some benadryl to help and I would make an appointment with the vet to have it looked at again.. maybe do a skin scraping? don't worry you will get to the source.. just have to figure out what is aggravating it but I would give the benadryl in the meantime.

    You can give her Piriton too...not the one a day dose though...the 4mg tablets. How much does she weigh...Lucy is 23kg and I give her 1 tablet...any less than 21kg and I would just give her half a tablet.
    They might make her a bit sleepy though so dont be worriesd if she sleeps more. Dont give her certizine...thats not good for her. Just Piriton or Benadryl xx

    They will help but we still need to find out what she is reacting too if it is indeed a reaction xx Pedigree is not good I'm afraid...try Chappy if you want a wet food, its cheap too and smells god awful. My sis in law feeds it her welsh terrier who has terrible allergies xx
