JRT with itchy skin NEW
by: Robert

Let's see, have you tried:

An oatmeal and an epsom salt bath (not at the same time). Religiously.

Have you tried adding Omega 3/Fish oil over her food? Some people also try using liquid olive oil or fish oil directly to the skin.

Have you tried an elimination diet?

Calendula and tree tee oil applied to the skin has been helpful.

Using a humidifier near where your Jack sleeps.

I was told a little bit of garlic is actually good for dogs with itchy skin, I plan on talking to my vet about this.
