    Default Itchy skin

    My little guy has been itching a lot. He gets so mad and starts to whine. I checked for fleas and ticks I see none. I checked for mites but they is hard without a skin test. Someone told me to use coconut oil or something. I was also thinking of doing a dip for mites but is he to little for that. ?

    Sounds like he could have allergies, check out the article on allergies to see. Is he missing any patches of hair? That's usually the signal for mites/mange.

    No he is not missing any hair and he does not itch all the time. Someone told me that it just could be dry skin and to try something natural like coconut oil or something.

    Coconut oil or salmon oil is great for the skin. What food are you feeding?

    Check the indregidents and see if this has salmon oil in it. Every bully is diff but Holly was very itchy with lamb. She loves duck, beef and is okay with pork.
    Also, look around the site and try an apple cider vinegar rinse. This really helps Holly and we dip her paws in the mixture before we rinse her as well. Good luck

    Remi gets this. The best shampoos to use for us is 1) Duoxo Shampoo and 2) smuttynose kava kava shampoo and the conditioner. It really helps refresh his skin.

    Don't forget to clean all bedding/toys after you give him a bath.

    And most important, sometimes our bullies have one spot that is really bothering them, but because of their body shape, they can't reach it and it looks like they are going crazy itching everywhere. We discovered, after at least a year, that the wrinkles under his scrotum/butt cheeks were chaffing him. A dab of Desitin does the trick! Look for any abnormally red spots in his wrinkle areas. Good luck!
