My shepherd/lab mix scratches himself alot more than usual. It’s never in one place, but all over. It hasnt gotten so bad to cause any noticeable redness in one spot, but i’m concerned.
He recently had a mild case of fleas that i’m positive was resolved. He’s cream/white in color, which makes it easier to view any parasites. Visual sightings on pet are negative, flea traps inside negative, and temps outside are cold enough to kill any fleas outside.
We ridded the fleas with about 3 full body baths over a months time. I would put him in the tub, lather up his head and neck, and then fill the tub to just under his jawline and let him soak for 10 minutes. I used an oatmeal dog shampoo made for dry skin, just so all the baths he was getting wouldnt dry out his skin.
He’s been eating Bravo for a couple of months, but i’m wondering if there is something i could add to his food to help him if it is dry skin he’s suffering from.

Congratulations on getting rid of the fleas!! That can be a *huge* project in and of itself. I also heartily applaud you for upgrading to a species-appropriate diet (for those who don’t know, Bravo is a human grade, grain-free meat/bone/veggie food).
