They do not have fleas, they take comfortis are professionally bathed every 2 weeks. they do not have any skin issues/rashes etc. the vet has told me before that some dogs just scratch and bite themselves for the fun of it and also if they have had fleas in the past and were scratching that some dogs cant or don’t break the scratching habit. Its driving me mental as im sure people think they have fleas lol

Reegan Bevan Hey. I’m a vet nurse and we normally only recommened bathing monthly if you can… Some dogs do have skin disease and need bathing weekly to fortnightly but IN your case you may be washing to frequently and removing the natural oils from their fur. Bath monthly with paw nutroderm shampoo. You can then make a spray bottle up with nutroderm conditionor and spray daily if you need to.. this will help sooth the skin you can also add a fish oil capsual to their dinner to help hope this helps xxx

Maddee Mulcahy – Dog Dips Yeah I was gonna ask about diet. Feeding raw makes an amazing difference, as do some supplements to get the coat and skin into healthy condition. Canine Vitality has a facebook page and does consults, and they are AMAZING in getting animals the healthiest they can be.
