Itching, Mostly At Night

My Mini Australian Shepherd scratches mostly at night - I don't know if she is bored or really does itch. Any suggestion?

try putting some oil in the food. her skin may be dried from being in the house.

Yes,I would try adding some fish oil to his food first of all. Just regular OTC fish oil. You can buy either in gell capsules or liquid. I buy liquid, just squirt a little in food. It is also good for hair, skin, nails and joints. You could also try a food for sensitive skin or try a hypoallergenic food, if the fish oil doesnt seem to be working. Hope this helps.
