Our 10 year old lab mix mutt has suffered from itchy skin and allergies most of her life, but in the last couple of years it has gotten much worse. We have been to the vet a dozen times and tried all kinds of treatments from steroids to antibiotics, specialty shampoos, changing her food, allergy pills, leave on treatments, etc.
We have been giving her a product called nzymes for about 3 months which is a combination of probiotics, antibacterial solution, enzymes to help with yeast and black leaf. It seems to be helping, but she will get better and then worse again.
She has terrible dandruff. Sometimes it even looks a bit brown and the flakes are really large. I bathe her a few times a week with an oatmeal and baking soda shampoo and then use a conditioner over the top, but after a couple of days, the dandruff and she has a terrible odor sometimes, not the normal stinky dog odor, but a very distinct smell. I don't like bathing her as much as I do because I know it can dry out the skin, but I have to. The smell is really bad and I can't get rid of the flakes by brushing, it just gets worse.
Right now we have her on a lamb and sweet potato food, we give her 2 different suppliments with her food for skin and coat and we also give her the nzymes products. Does anyone have any suggestions, tips, home remedies, product you have used for itchy, dry, flakey, irritated, smelly skin? Something to help with the flakes would be wonderful!!! I'll try anything to help my sweetie!
