I have a female Mini Aussie who is just over a year old. She has always been an itchy dog, but it has been getting worse lately. It seems like she is scratching all the time, and actually has scabs from it. I tried changing her food and putting fish oils on it, but didn't seem to help. I took her to the vet a couple weeks ago and he said she probably just has allergies, and put her on a steroid/cortizone pill. It helped for a little bit, but now that she's finished them she's back to itching lots. I feel bad for her because it's obviously irritating her very much. I've heard that switching to a raw diet would help - but the vet told me it's not a food allergy. What else can I do for her?
