Q. What can I give him or what I can I use to stop his itchy skin ?

Answered By

A. It depends what is causing the itching. You need to make sure that you have treated for fleas in the last month with a good quality flea product from your vet. Also make sure that you are feeding a high quality complete and balanced dog food as he maybe lacking some nutrients. It is wise to have it checked out by your vet first to rule out dermatitis or mites.
