Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog. Can you tell me if he has any lesions on his skin, such as scabs or pimple like bumbs or patches of dead skin? How long has he been on the new food? Is it something from the store or your vet? Has he been on any medications before for his itching?
