Hi My 3-yr old rescue...
Hi My 3-yr old rescue cattle dog/black lab keep picking at his butt area. He also licks his paws but there is no damage like seen in the picture here. He take predisone and fluticasone for a lung issue called eosinophillic brocnchial nuemopathy. It is starting to drive us crazy as he keeps itching.1. Do you think this food related?
2. We are taking him to a dermatologist as the current vet thinks its a allergy. What kind of testing can i expect?
3. Anything we can do in the meantime to help this situation?
