Two things one of the vet techs said to me the other day.
To try giving my dog bottled water to prevent itching??? They had a dog who has very itchy and tried giving it bottled water and the itchyness stopped. Has anyone ever heard of this?
Also, for thinning hair to give a zinc supplement but I don't know how much??
Any ideas on this? Thanks
well--that's a new one !
i would hope these 'helpful' people have ruled out stuff like thyroid, Addison's, allergies, stress, mange, etc etc etc, before coming up with this stuff....... :
Until it is determined what is causing the issue, you can add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to your pet's food to help with the dry skin and dandruff...don't bathe the dog every week...labs need to be bathed with a shampoo very infrequently, a simple rinse with the hose it sufficient....corn starch can help if a good rinse doesn't get rid of any ucky smell!
Good luck in finding out the cause!
