Re: Dog with itchy skin condition???

Try and keep her from biting and digging. My dog is still digging a little, but not like before. Even after the fleas are dead the old bites can itch for a few more days. The Colloidal Silver is really helping. I just spray it on the dog a few times a day. I did not bathe the dog at all and will not do that until his skin is completely healed. I think that any kind of bath, unless its just water, could irratate the skin more. Also, I would suggest using a water filter that removes the chlorine and other chemicals in water. All these things will irratate the already irratated dog's skin.

Revolution is only a few drops of liquid, applied to the back of the dog where they cannot reach it to lick it off. It will kill all the fleas. You do not even have to use a bomb or any thing else in the house because when the fleas bite the dog, (if there are any more fleas around) they will die. The medicine goes into the dog's blood stream. The treatment lasts one month. If money is an issue the vet should sell you ONE tube of this. You may not need a second tube.

Other things can be irratating the dogs skin too. Perfumed laundry detergent can do it. The big irratant is the dryer sheets. I had one dog years ago that was very sensitive to these things. Fabric softener, (liquid or the dryer sheets) is toxic and they should out law it !! Cleaning products, furniture polish, all kinds of things that we would never think of can be very irratating to dog's skin. They are not good for you either. I use vinegar and water to mop the floor with. I never ever use any kind of fabric softener. If your dog has a special blanket or any fabric that it sleeps on I would suggest the you get some Twenty Mule Team Borax and use this to wash the dog's blanket in.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted and good luck.
