Hi, I was wondering if there’s anyone on here who could possibly offer their advice? Our Japanese Akita Inu has developed some sort of skin condition- at first we assumed it to be allergy related and have tried him on an array of food (inc his current diet of raw tripe!) and nothing seems to work. His symptoms are developed after his first birthday when his full adult coat came in and the puppy hair was gone! He tends to scratch an awful lot, particularly his back, the centre of his head and his tummy. He bites his legs and his paws and often his skin can become scabby and his ears are awfully dry inside. He’s lost so much hair and can sometimes get so irritated! I get him groomed around once a month with vet prescribed shampoo and he seems to be better that day but then continues to itch the day after! I’ve tried introducing coconut oil to his diet and that seemed to work but no longer proves to help! I have tried to do everything to avoid getting a skin biopsy done- as I obviously want to avoid ridiculous vet bills but I just feel so sorry for him now! Any advice is welcome and appreciated! TIA, Olivia.
