Question: My Labrador retriever itches underneath her belly, legs, paws, chin, ears. She scratches it a lot. She has lost hair where it itches. Her skin is red and bleeds in some places. Antihistamines do not help her. She is on a braccs diet. She gets a lot of omega 3 and also digestive enzymes for about 1 month now. What is wrong with my dog? What is she allergic to or what is her problem?
It sounds like your Labrador retriever may have a skin allergy or infection. Skin allergies are often caused by a reaction to environmental allergens, such as pollen or dust mites, or food allergies. Skin infections can also cause itching and hair loss in dogs. I recommend taking your dog to the vet to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Your veterinarian may recommend skin tests or blood tests to identify any allergens. They may also prescribe a medication to help with the symptoms and provide you with tips on how to manage your dog's condition. In the meantime, make sure your dog is on a flea-prevention program, as flea allergy dermatitis is one of the most common causes of skin irritation in dogs. Keep your dog's skin clean and dry, and avoid using any harsh chemicals on it.
