Dog Won't Stop Itching
This 5 yrs old male lab mix is always itching and his back legs never had hair since I rescued him.
Neck is always red and without hair and hot to the touch.
Medication history: antibiotics, ketokenazole, prednisone. While on medications, they improves slightly.
Shampoo: Malakeet is the only one that helps a little. Other shampoos with the same medication do not relieve the itching. The Happy Pet shampoo also works to relieve a little.
Always must dry completely after bathing, otherwise the condition worsens.
Lately have been rinsing with white vinegar diluted in water. That works a little. No need to dry him with the hair drier after the vinegar/water rinse.
Have been giving him oregano oil capsules daily for almost 2 months. At the beginning the condition improved, then got worse.
What can you recommend? I just want him to stop scratching and be in peace.
