hello. How often do you bathe them? Do you notice any flakes on the skin? That was the only time my dogs were scratching so much.

Ask your vet about a dose of antihistamine like Children's Benadryl. Pico gets grass itch which usually doesn't last long but when his eyes start watering or he starts licking his paw incessantly, I know its time for the Benadryl. I've only used it twice in his 3 1/2 years.

If you think it's his skin, try an Aveeno bath for her.

Is that from bathing too often? What did you do to get rid of the flakes?

What do you feed her? Food allergies are fairly common. The 3 "biggies" are corn, wheat and soy products so check your label.
