    I rescued a pit mix a few months ago. Whoever the previous owner was cropped his ears shorter than i’ve ever seen before. They’re so short his hair didn’t grow back on the edges and recently they have been very dry. He has been scratching and shaking his head a lot causing dry skin to flake off...

    Hi all, If this was already asked, let me know! Any advice for dry skin? My rescue boy had dandruff when I got him, it seemed to go away for a bit and it's been back. It's extremely noticeable, and it clearly bothers him as he scratches himself a lot. I have not noticed any fleas (and my girl...

    Hey guys, this is my first post on the forum and I just need a little advice. My big guy Blu is a 3yo blue nose brindle mix, and he has been having some really red, flaky skin on his groin and I don't know how to make it go away. I was using coconut oil but I think it's making it worse. He is...

My precious lanky pit, Roscoe, is 1 year old and has developed dry skin and I think his fur has thinned a small bit on his back near his tail (will provide a picture, but it's hard to see because his fur blurs the image). He has also developed some sort of skin irritation on...

    My dog has horrible dry, flaky skin. We live in CO and it's so dry here, especially in winter. She is shedding like crazy and, even though she doesn't itch constantly, you can see little flakes of skin on her hair. We feed her Taste of the Wild-High Prairie and give her Salmon oil to go with it...

He has tried oatmeal shampoo & olive oil in the dinner, but they don't seem to be working. We also have tried benadryl & want to try Claritin as well. Does...

    Does anyone know why the tips of my dogs ears could be so dry? We just moved back to Colorado from Texas and she did have horrible allergies for the year and half that we were there. But my vet down there didn't help me much She also has the same dry spots around her elbows. Any ideas? Thanks
