Dog Has Itchy, Scaly Skin with Backward Sneezing & Anxiety
by Gina F.
Skin allergies on underside
I have adopted a dog last Wednesday from a irresponsible breeder that had 13 other dogs locked up in small kennels. She is very fearful but little by little she is improving.
They gave her to me with some pills for a fungus in the skin. We checked her for mange and it came out negative. But she does have some scaling. She itches a lot inside the house.
We took her to the park today for a couple of hours and she didn't scratch once but as soon as we put her back in the kennel in the car she stared scratching again.
I'm bathing her with Azmira organic shampoo.
What can I do about her itching?
I have also noticed some backward sneezing, could that be part of the allergies in her skin?
Could the itching is caused by her anxiety?
I have attached a picture of her allergy. She scratches all over her body, nose, hears, paws, and licks her paws also.
I'm feeding her Wellness dry small breed mixed with canned wellness. She doesn't eat very well. I boiled some chicken breast and that she ate no problem. I spoke to another person that rescued a dog from the same place and said she having the same problem with the food.
I'm not using any supplements. I don't know exactly how old she is, but she's around 2 years old. She was vaccinated on 28th Oct. for Rabies, virus, Bordetella and spayed on the 30th.
