12 Week old puppy can't stop scratching herself

August 29th, 2007, 02:26 PM
We just purchased a 12 week old border terrier cross puppy and brought her home from the breeder's farm.

She's been to the vet for her check up and other than some roundworms and conjunctivitis, both of which we got meds for she's perfectly healthy.

She was on "Waggles Premium" puppy food and we are transitioning her to the "Oven Baked" puppy food as per the directions on the bag.

Olivia has been scratching herself since we got her home. The vet said that puppies do scratch their bodies but this seems to be a lot of scratching.

I was in the pet store and he suggested maybe its allergies? He said that often times dogs are allergic to chicken or beef and the food causes her to scratch. ???

Could it be the anti worm meds?

help please.
