GOODY,

THIS SOUND EXACTLY WHAT MY DOG IS GOING THROUGH. WE HAVE TRIED OILS IN HER FOOD, VITAMINS, BATHING, BRUSHING, WHATEVER.

THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY. THE ONLY THING I CAN COME UP WITH IS THAT I BELIEVE THAT MY APARTMENT IS FULL OF MOLD. THERE WERE LEAKING PROBLEMS LAST WINTER. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS COULD BE HER PROBLEM.
BY CHANCE HAVE YOU HAD LEAKING IN YOUR RESIDENCE? I AM ONLY GUESSING BUT WHO KNOWS?

You may want to try a Cod Liver Oil capsule once a day. I tried that with my dog who was shedding excessively and it has helped 100 percent. You may also try a hyop allergenic dog food, it sounds like your dog may have an allergy and many allergies can be food related. I have taken my dog to a holistic vet who has provided me with much insight and information and has worked wonders for my dog. Also try to incorporate some cooked meat like liver or chicken with some cooked green veggies once a day. Your dog will love it!!
