what do you do when your 1 year old pitt has a severe case of dry skin? i've tried the vet, vitamin E, special shampoos.now it seems i've used too many chemicals on her.of course i didnt try them all in one day or even a few in a row.but anything i put on her now shows HUGE RED BUMPS under thinning hair.so i hear flax seeds and salmon oil is the way i should have gone in the first place.especially since i found fleas on her brother??
I almost sounds like what happend to my moms shihtzu. If it sounds the same as your dog then try what we did.
My moms shihtzu started to lose his hair and ended up with these odd scabs it looked like red blisters bunched together, and they vareyed in color from yellows, greens, browns, and reds. It was nasty. He may have had bumps at some point I dont know I didnt see him every day untill it got bad.his skin ws very dry, he started to stink, it was nasty. It all started with his hair falling out and dry skin. Anyway after it got real bad and mom wouldnt take him to the vet me and my brother got hot spot and I came over every day to trim back the hair from his wierd scabby things and she would hot sopt him. After a few days he was looking better and now he fines.
It was so strange he started losing hair in one spot and it spread up his leg and after a wile he had no hair from the middle of his back back.
Anyway if its looking anything like that try hot spot. I have not seen her dog for a wile but my brother says he looks alot better and is growing hair back
well i don't know what the problem could be, but as far as flax seed, i use the flax oil capsules. they work great. i don't know if they will help with this problem but they give the coats a nice shine and they help my pugs dry skin. i get mine in the vitamin section of the grocery store. i give one a few times per week.
