My dog has a rash or skin problem. Her skin flakes peels in

Customer Question

my dog has a rash or skin problem. Her skin flakes peels in certain areas. I had started her on vitamins just 3 weeks ago but I have not seen a difference. Is it too soon to tell?

she doesn't really scratch. I noticed dry skin and bumps on her when I was petting her.

Unless Petunia were vitamin deficient there's no reason to expect her skin problem to respond to vitamin supplementation. Can you upload a photo(s) of representative skin to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing.
