Customer Question

My dog is 8 years old, we adopted her from our local pound, at 3 years old. I had her to three different vets, They keep saying she is allergic. I have tried to watch her food and get her what they recommend,
She has scailly spots on the top of her back, between her legs anywhere there's a warm spot, I have used medicated animal shampoo, used prescription pills, my vet just told me to use over the counter pills, nothing has worked. Our dog twirls on her bottom, and chews on her legs, She is so miserable I don't know what else to do for her. It is a problem all year winter and summer.

What prescription medications have you used for her?

When she was taking the prescription medications did her itching improve?
