    DefaultNew to the neighborhood

    Here is my 3 year old chocolate lab, Maggie Mae. I caught a great photo of her just as I told her to "Speak!"

    So, is it true that chocolate labs tend to have more skin issues than other labs? Maggie has had problems with ear infections (none in several months... knock wood) and now she has a yeast infection on her paws and belly, groin area. She is being treated and seems to be getting better. I am feeding her, and our chihuahua, California Natural Lamb and Rice because I was worried she had a food allergy. Now I think it is all because of the yeast.

    Welcome to the forum. Your pup is very cute!
    As for more skin problems I'm not sure. I believe that has to do with more than just the color.
    That said, I have a Chocolate and she has always had problems. I feed her a vegetarian food.
    I tried lots of food to find one that agrees with her. She still likes to lick her paws this time of the year.

    Yeah, the Vet did say the yeast problem tends to be worse this time of year due to all the rain, etc.

    Your dog is a cutie too!

    Milly scratches alot. We've been trying to find her a food that agrees with her. We've had her a month and we're on our 3rd different brand *sigh*

    We have decided that we can't wash her every week too. So we've bought this leave in conditioner that our vet recommended to help with her dry skin. About 2 days after we wash her it looks like she has dandruff, it's worse around her neck/collar region too.

    She was scratching so much that we thought she has fleas but it just looks like she has dry, sensitive skin.

    Welcome from Florida! I have a yellow that has had skin problems since we got him at 6 months old. I also have a chocolate puppy & so far he doesn't have any skin problems. Hopefully he won't. By the way, Maggie Mae is a cutie!
