Bauer has started scratching himself more and more. The main spot he scratches at, are the nipples in the middle of the stomach. One of them actually got a little red yesterday so I took him to the vet.
That being said he is 18 weeks old, so I and the vet do not believe this a food allergy (real slight chance). However, it could be an allergic reaction to something else? For now I am spraying gentocin on him twice a day in the spots that bother him most (that does seem to help a bit). We also gave him a bath with some Oatmeal shampoo the vet recommended for short term relief - not sure that really does anything though.
I think I am going to add dermcaps to his diet in a couple of days...thoughts?
This could also be him being a puppy as puppies have sensitive skin? This is what I am hoping for.
Has anyone been through something similar with a pup - if so, what do you recommend and what is the outcome now?
