LINDSEY EDWARDS MVB, BSC, IVCA
A. Ensure all other more common causes, especially mange and bacterial pyoderma are ruled out first. Royal canin produce Skin Care range suitable for puppies or if very severe you may have to progress to hydrolyzed hypoallergenic diet although she is very young to have developed such severe allergies
A. The specific allergens will determine the type of food you will need. Consider allergy testing by your veterinarian or a veterinary dermatologist to discover what your pup sensitivities are. Alternatively, you can discuss food elimination trials with your vet. A hydrolyzed diet may be an option also.
