Have you been back to the Vet to say the dog is still ripping out hair? Try the oatmeal bath (vinegar and water helps my dog, but the effect is short lived) but I'm afraid for such a severe reaction you are going to find the oatmeal bath does little good. Your Vet needs to see your dog again. So many different things could be the cause; allergies, mange, hormonal imbalance. Personally, to have my dog itchy and physically restrain him from scratching is, IMO, a kind of torture. Yes, you may have to do that but couple it with trying to find out the cause and eliminate the cause too, if you can. Good luck. It's awful to see them in such torment. My boy does have seasonal allergies and is now on Atopica, which works for him.
