itchy scratches!

hi everyone - happy fourth of july weekend! my tummy is feeling much better, but now i have a bad case of the itchies...thanks to my friend stuart for posting about my little problem and thanks to everyone for their helpful suggestions. i've been getting some cheese wrapped benadryl to help with the itching and got a bath with some medicated shampoo - that was torture let me tell you! but it all seems to be helping - i'm still itchy, but i can sleep without scratching like crazy...
we hope you all have some fun at a barbeque or something! me - i'll be hanging with my grandpeeps hoping there aren't too many fireworks going off!


  1. Hope you have a safe and firework free 4th of July.

    Your pal, Pip

  2. Boy, I dont know Edgar. Once i had the itchies and Mom got some spray from the store and that helped but she cant remember what it was. Hope it feels better soon. Have a great 4th!!


  3. Glad you are getting some relief from those itchies.

    I got itchy when I first switched to kibble, but then I switched again to a No Grain kibble and haven't had any problems.

    Good luck. Itchies are horrible....even with cheese.

  4. Hope you are feeling better...I had bad itches too and then she figured out that I was allergic to wheat..which was good that should found out but bad for me. No more of those yummy treats and they had to change my food...and no more BREAD!!!!! Come over and visit us at when you feel better!

  5. Hi Edgar, I was reading Stuarts blog about your problem with itching. My mom sprays me with emu oil. It works really well. She gets it at the natural dog food store "Thomaston Grain & Feed" in Thomaston, CT. You may be able to get it at your store or you can order online. Good Luck - Scotties Simon Henry & Gordan
