jack russell terrier is scratching continuously

I have a 14-yr old female JRT/Pek. who favors the JRT look.

During a shedding season she has been scratching almost continuously (every
few minute intervals). She digs gobs of hair loose. We bath her about
monthly. Her regular vet checked her twice recently and couldn't identify the
cause. I suppose it isn't going to kill her, but any suggestions?

Itching Jack Russell

Our JRT has seasonal allergies and scratches like yours does. Have you tried adding a little fish oil to his food? That has helped mine. And during allergy season we give him a little bit of childrens liquid benedryl (talk to your vet first) and that helps a lot too.
