I only buy from sites that take AmEx. However, after reading the information re: buySAFE, I decided to purchase from your site anyway. That was a first. This seems like a great service. Thank you!

Question from billy g.

My dog has an itching problem. I use medicated shampoo with no results. I think she has dry skin and no lesions. I can use 1% hydrocortisone spray for temporary relief. I give her fish oil caps occasionally. Any suggestions?...

Our vet answers:

You can try changing her diet to a diet for sensitive skin or to a hypoallergenic diet. You should be able to see results within a few weeks of doing so. Ensure that you are giving her good protection from fleas as sometimes it is possible for dogs to have fleas without you being able to see them. You can use hydrocortisone spray but this will not resolve the problem. It will ameliorate the itching but not get rid of it.....
