    Default Dry skin

    I noticed last night that my dog has really dry skin towards the hind end. I had her at the groomers a couple of weeks ago and she hasn't been in lakes swimming. She gets omega oil every morning. Just wondering why it would be so bad in just one area and anything I can put on it?
    If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.

    The only thing I can think of right now is Vitamin E oil. Shouldn't hurt the dog but may help relieve the itching and dryness. Could it be irritation from clippers maybe?

    She doesn't get clipped with clippers but Vitamin E may help. Thanks

    My dogs get like that in the winter from the wood stove.

    I bought a bottle of omega fatty oils the other day from pet valu...a little pricey but goes a long way. Your just squirt it on their food and it heals the skin from the inside out

    could be a food intolerance. just like humans, allergies can pop up anytime. mine get itchy if they have too much wheat so they are on a wheat free diet with the exception of the occasional pizza crust.
    If you want the best seat in the house, move the dog.

    She is not so bad now. Gave her a couple of good brushings as well. Need to find time to get her into the groomers for a good bath as well

    i bought a hydrocortisoid spray for my cat, and it made a big difference within 48 hours. I should have thought of that a long time ago, since they use that cream on exzema and other dry skin disorders. love it. bought it at walmart on the usa side for ten bucks.

    Joy also recommended I try dr. maggie ointment on my cat. It's kinda thick like vaseline, but it gave her relief immediately, And its all natural. Bought it from a pet store on secondline. Pet Value I think its called.

    thanks Joy
