Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have two Cavaliers, a male aged four and a female aged two. The male is very healthy but sadly the same cannot be said for my girl. She's been scratching badly now for several months and the vet has ruled out many things including fleas and most allergies. She's been on a trial prescription diet for the past few weeks to see if her original diet could have been the problem, however after a few weeks on it she's still scratching. I don't know what the vet will check for next but I'm becoming increasingly concerned that she's got SM. She's now scratching herself so much that her skin is becoming raw. I was wondering what experiences other members have with Cavalier scratching ? could this just be a bad allergy ? Thanks in advance.
