(Saranac Lake, New York)
My 7 year old Austrlian Shepherd, Lucy, has really dry skin on her rump and has 3 times pulled fur out. The vet has given her cortisone shots and that stops it for a couple weeks but then it happens again. I give her Benadryl 2-3 times a day, use Humilac anti-itch spray and put fish oil in her food. She cannot get an allergy blood test done until 3 months after her last cortisone shot (2 months left to wait). She has been checked for fleas and mites... nothing there.
We adopted her 6 months ago from the shelter.
