by Oliver
(Australia)

Can someone please help? My long haired Jack Russell has allegergies and tends to scratch himself a lot. It's gotten to the point now where he is ripping is own fur out to get to the skin causing scabs.


Why is this? and what can be done?

Thanks

I had a JR butch who had this problem, she was allergic to the harvest mite, and cat fleas. You must take her to the vet who will do a test as prescribe medicine, or Itvwill only get worse.

My JR Mattie died in Feb this year aged 16 years. we now have a 4 month old JR puppy.
