    Sadie is the name of my lab. I am on here to help me help her with skin allergies. Sadie is 11 months old.

    Is Sadie silver? Or does that refer to you? Because silver Labs can have have some skin issues due to their dilute gene that might resemble allergy.

    Good questions Dog Paddle.

    We can offer suggestions if we know more about the problems, but nothing is a substitute for your vet.

    And if your lab is silver, alopecia due to the dilute gene is basically untreatable. You can mitigate the symptoms but never cure the problem.
