:Susan on…itchy skinPosted: December 1, 2008
Okay. Okay. So the graphic isn’t a dog itching. But it’s really cool!! Far more interesting than an actual photo of a dog itching! It’s called Guard Dog, found in the Street Art and Sculpture area of the Itchy Pixels website. You can understand why a google search on ‘itchy canines’ led to it. There’s a bunch of other cool street art to check out…in between itching.
Here’s several clips from correspondence with Susan…
Both Raji and Rinchen came home from the groomer with a report that
their skin seemed excessively dry.
Raji had actually dug herself a good sized hot spot on her neck that we
will be putting some Gentamycin on for a few days.
Rinchen hadn’t shown any obvious signs — at least not to me.
Sammy’s is fine.
Any easy suggestions for additions/changes to their diets?? to increase
either their Omega 3 or Omega 6 Fatty Acids/
I’m thinking that brushing them nightly (which I’ve gotten very lax on)
should help a bit by stimulating the oil producing glands in the skin,
but any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I myself seem to have a seborrhetic dermatitis (fungal). I wonder if
they could have the same thing???? I use a ketokonazole shampoo to
control the itchy scalp….Hmmm…back to Google.
So, as of today I am changing their diet in two ways: I’m gonna poach
their daily egg instead of giving it to them raw since I understand
there is an enzyme (avatin) in raw eggs that may block the absorbtion of
biotin and “cause skin problems”. And, I’m going to give them some
fish oil once a day…. Any other ideas will still and always be
This is a great topic. Input invited!
