I have a ten year old Landseer Newf. For about a year he has had intense itch. He licks himself raw in spot. He seems to have a sticky discharge from within. I have tried everything. ANy advice would be appreciated

You haven't mentioned what the vet said about it.

Have you taken him to a vet?

Have you changed his diet?

Could be flees...Or it could be an allergy.Or stress.

Unfortunately it could be a number of things.

Get him checked by a vet.

I thought I saw this post somewhere before? Either that or I'm time travelling.

Yes, what has the vet said? Could be anything from allergy to immune system being compromised from another condition.

I thought before I suggested a call to the breeder of the dog to see if its genetic or a trait of newfs, breeders often know a lot.
