Boston Terrier Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/3/2006
My six month old puppy scrathes herself - somehtimes until she yelps in pain. Does this sound like allergy or diet? Should I treat with topical sprays or creams or alter her diet?

8/3/06 Are you sure she doesn't have fleas. If she has Flea Allergy Dermatitis, all it takes is one flea bite to cause a reaction. For these dogs it take two weeks to recover from one bite. Thus it's a vicious cycle. Otherwise, it's possible that it's a food allergy. Usually with food allergies however, they chew on their feet and legs. If she's not eating holistic food, I would definitely get her on a high quality food ASAP. I would try other things before putting on sprays and creams. You don't want to strip the natural oils out of your Bostons coat. Once this happens, you may have ongoing skin problems. Cassidy
