Unhappy my ****-zu keeps scratching and bitter her hair out

my dog who is about 3 years old is a ****-zu but i believe more of a ****-su/maltese but anyways, she is constantly scratching herself all over, rolling around on her back , and licking herself. She will lick/bite her rear end area so hard that there is a bald spot now on her tail and back . Sometime i will see chunks of hair that she had taking out. i bath her almost once a week. I have used a flea shampoo which gets destroys the fleas until she goes outside again but she still licks/bits the same area. can anyone help me?

Sounds to me like you may need better flea control.

Try Program or Advantage.

It doesn't look like your shampoo is working well.

What brand is it?

HI,

Maybe the shampoo works well...maybe not. OR MAYBE THAT'S NOT THE PROBLEM.

Fact IS your pet still has a problem that is making it EXTREMELEY uncomfortable.

Maybe it is a different type of parasite or a skin problem/disorder.

Really you should see a vet.

What your pet has...needs to be SEEN not described over the net.

By the way your dogs breed is a Shih tzu
