we've recently adopted a german shepard/chow mix. she's 3 years old and in great health. in the past week, she's starting itching, scratching and biting herself pretty much all over. its NOT fleas, we've bathed her repeatedly (with oatmeal dog shampoo) and haven't seen a single flea.
how can we help her?!?! she seems so miserable. :( any oils, rubs, anything?

Commercial dog food is the number 1 cause of allergy's in dogs. If she doesn't have fleas and isn't alergic to your carpet or other outside things, then it can be the food. Your vet or a pet store carries shampooes that will sooth the skin , with good brushing and good food. I use omega 3 in the food for my dogs. Have used fish oil also and it helps with shedding and puts back the fatty acids they need. I also use nutro dog food. Number 1 ingred is lamb with rice. Research the dog foods, you will be amased whats out there.
Good luck , hope she feels better soon.
