My pup spends a lot of time scratching or biting at his fur. He's also started doing this weird sort of crawl, which I imagine is his way of scratching his belly. The scratching/gnawing isn't necessarily a new thing but it worries me that we haven't been able to fix the problem. We adopted him a little over a month ago and had a bit of an issue with dog lice and multiple baths. His skin was understandably irritated so we laid off the baths and started mixing Omega 3 oil into his food once a day.
His skin seemed to improve slightly for a week and then he started scratching and gnawing again. I check him over every day and he's been looked over by the vet recently at his check-up. We know that it's not a flea/tick/lice issue. We've also limited the baths to just one in the past three weeks (he needed that one
) and we're still giving him the Omega 3 oil daily.
I'm at a bit of a loss on how to help him or what could be causing this! Much thanks, in advance, for your response!
