Hi My 2 year old blue staffy has dermatitis on his paws.. its really bad on his right paw he is OCD licking it all the time I feel so sorry for him I want to help relief the itch..My previous vet gave me norcoe cream and I constantly use malaseb shampoo on his paws to try and reduce the inflammation. My vet has told me he is allergic to some sort of grass. I have recently just moved back to SYD from the Gold Coast and Billy was always in the salt water as you can take your dogs to the beach in QLD. I think the salt water kept the reaction at bay but now I cant seem to keep the redness and swelling down on his paw.Is there any natural solutions I can use to help relief this constant itch for him, I have read iodine diluted in water might help??Please help me help BillyRegards Heidi Horan
I normally wash my dog with dog shampoo, but we ran out. So I started using some of my Mum's Tresemme Colour Fast shampoo. Apart from probably being a *lot* more expensive and smelling nicer, are there any problems with using shampoo that is meant for people?
