Male Schnauzer itching and scratching all the time
(Chico, Ca USA)
I have a 4 yr. old male schnauzer and he has just started scratching and chewing all over especially on his back hip area.
He has been doing this for almost 3 weeks now. I have given him one flea bath and he had no fleas and I gave him a bath using the new I Love Pet Head shampoo that has no harsh chemicals in it. I have seen some spots on him that look like dirt but he doesn't go outside in the dirt?
I know he is about 3 weeks over due for his dog groom and i was wondering if maybe the wirey looking hair that is coming in could be his problem. He is starting to get some bald spots on his hip area from scratching.
I have dog benedryl but I dont want to keep giving him that every day. I have only gave him benedryl 2 times so far.
Help what is his problem? I still dont see any fleas.
