Q. My rescued Pitbull has dry rough skin and small scabs on her body especially by tail. What would be safe to put on her?
A. I would make sure you keep her fleas and worming treatments up to date, with a good effective products, You need to make sure you treat all the pets in your household and you also want to treat the environment (fleas only). Skin lesions on the lower part of the back, or around tail base area, are typical of flea allergies/infestations. With regards to the poor quality of her skin, make sure you feed your dog the best diet you possibly can, and that you don't bathe her too frequently and using an appropriate shampoo only.
