I recently rescued a cocker spaniel pup 8 weeks old.
I recently rescued a cocker spaniel pup 8 weeks old. I have brought her to the vet 5 X and he can' t seem to find out what is wrong. She seems to scratch all over. It wont wake her up, but it will stop her in her tracks when she is playing or eating. She will just start scratching. I have tried the following:
-she was scraped and no mites or ringworm
-tried oatmeal shampoo and Maleseb shampoo
-tried a broad antibiotics in case it is bacterial
-changed diet to Natural Balance and started adding Vitamin E to food.
She will bite at her rear, and paws and scratch her body, ears and legs. No hairloss or inflammed skin. No appearance of rash or crusty skin.
She will cry from the scratching and it breaks my heart. She is so young I don't want to try anything too extreme (medication wise). I have no idea what else to do. I have had her for 14 days and she has been to the vet 5X, with another apt this Friday.
Any advice would be great
