Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear that your little Pittie is having issues with itching!Please try not to do an abrupt food change as this may lead to vomiting and diarrhea in some dogs. A slow transition over 1-2 weeks is advisedBenadryl is 1 mg/ pound every 8 hours to help with itch but may cause mild sedationYou can also bathe in an oatmeal based dog shampoo with ten minute contact time before rinsing once daily until the itching begins to subside and then taper frequency as improvement is seenPlease let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both, I am online another 15 minutes tonight to assist you
