Her back is CRAZY sensitive and she won't stop scratching - HELP!
by Angela E
My Macy is 4 yr old. She has gradually over the past 8 months gotten very sensitive on her back. She reacts like she's ticklish anywhere you touch her on her back. PLUS she is constantly scratching her side ... to the point it's balding.
The skin then gets raised bumps everywhere and the skin begin getting flakey. The vet gave me the run around. You're bathing her too much and she's allergic. They want me to give her allergy pills but I feel something else is going on.
We bath her twice a week plus the skin in her ears looks speckled black ... NOT ear mites though. SO, I have changed her diet. Removed all carbs and corn.
I am making home-made food from recipes I have found online.
We saw improvement after the first week but now it's starting all over again. UGH!! I don't know what to do. HELP.
