Q. My dog has a temp of 99.8. She sometimes has fecal incontinence. She has trouble keeping weight but no trouble eating. She itches herself raw in spots
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. There might be something in her food that she is allergic to. Try a good quality grain free dry food (e.g. Orijen, Accana, Evolve), transition to the new food gradually over a period of 10 days (every day put a little more from the new food and a little less from the old food). Keep her on the food for 2 months to decide if it helps or not.
If this doesn't help with the itching and fecal incontinence, take her to the vet in order to diagnose the problem.
