Can You Give Edgar Some Advice?

Hey, I was thinking, since you (my Scottie Chronicle friends and followers) are sooooo helpful, I thought you might be able to help Edgar. He’s having a little skin problem and wondered what to do about it. I suggested he take a look at the food he’s eating, but then a couple of you suggested some other things.

So, think about it and leave a comment either here, or at his blog. OK? Let’s see if we can help his skin get better. To learn about his skin trouble, read the comments here.

To visit his blog, jump over here.

What You Learned Today:

  • Some dogs get skin rashes and stuff.
  • I’m lucky. I don’t.
  • If you have any thoughts about how to get rid of skin stuff, leave a comment here, or visit Edgar’s blog.

Thanks. You’re a pal.

    check to see if fleas are the problem- little black dirt like flecks or actual creepy crawlys. food can also be a problem.

    Kenzie (the Westie) has Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He’s been helped a whole lot by going to vegetarian dog food. They have it at PetSmart and Petco and there are a few brands (Nature’s Recipe, Natural Balance and Avoderm to name a few). If the problem is a manifestation of some food allergy, this would help. I know we all wonder about Kenzie but it isn’t the diet-I’m on it also and I’m not only without defect-I’m the consummate perfect princess. We’re full of energy and I’ll be 9 this month and he’ll be 8½.

    We’re lucky, we don’t have skin problems–but it could be food. I, Daisy, started itching after I switched to kibble….so we switched to a No Grain kibble, and I haven’t been having any problems. Hope Edgar can find out what the problem is….itchies are no fun.

    XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

  6. Sorry Edgar is having fits with skin problems.
    Over on the Scottish Terrier Club of America site there’s a health library and they have loads of information for Scottie’s. Take a read here http://stca.biz/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=441:itchy-dogs&catid=323:viruses-parasites-and-pathogens&Itemid=100 for skin conditions.
    Good luck Edgar and hope you’ll have complete relief soon.

    shampoo is also one of the main reason , I found HYPOALLERGENIC SHAMPOO that is sulfate free is OK with me , I am very sensitive with most shampoo .My mommy have to search for different one until she found this one . I stopped going to see vet on skin problem now.

    Sorry to comment so late. Mitty and Scamp had terrible skin issues, so much so that they had to go on allergy shots. We changed their food to salmon and sweet potatoes (no grains- Great Life has a fantastic product both wet and dry) and added Grizzly Salmon Oil. It cleared up within a month and they never had to be put back on their shots. Our vet also said to avoid dairy and chicken.
    Thankfully Boomer hasn’t shown any allergies yet. Good luck, Edgar! Feel better.
