"We spent thousands of dollars trying to figure out what to do about itchy dogs, after we had a rescue dog in the house for a few months. We never determined the real cause, but the vets suspected mites (we had no tests that confirmed this). We put…"

"One last comment - dogs and cats do get behavioral disorders just like humans and many of them are genetically driven though trauma and other negative experiences can definitely trigger it as well. There is even something called Nervous Pointer…"

"Thanks for all the replies. I have been considering a raw food diet, we did determine it's not mange (mites), we're doing the weekly baths with special shampoo (seems to help), give her kelp supplement (recommended and her coat looks…"

How do I cure my dog's skin condition?

We've recently adopted a dog from the shelter not realizing that one of her problems is itchy skin. The vet tells us it's probably a food allergy and we've now had her on a grain-free, no chicken diet for 7 weeks. The itching continues. The histamines haven't work and I've now reluctantly put her on a low dose of prednisone. That has helped the itching but it's not curing her and also causes incontinence. I'm looking for a solution, perhaps someone who does kinesiology on pets?See More

"We celebrated rain by walking barefoot on the sidewalk. The puddles were warm on the feet and the rain surprisingly cold on the head.  "

Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
I love the weather and the grand vistas of the sky. I like the city life and the fact that within an hour you can be hiking in the mountains and harldy see a soul. Now that smoking is banned in bars it's a lot more fun to go hear the local bands.
What I'm Reading:
The Afterlife and Other Stories by John Updike
