pup is chewing his fur off :
I have a 6 month old Havanses named Wendal. He has been chewing his fur off his arm. I had the vet look at him twice and they could not find nothing out of the ordinary ..other than his missing fur. NO bumps, lumps, red spot, hives or sores. I was thinking maybe a food allergy? He was on Science Diet which he loved. We have now switched him to Eukanuba with the primary ingredient being chicken instead of corn. I was also given "tritop" from the vet. to apply topically. He is groomed every other day and I have occasionally noticed some dry flakes. I was also told to put some flax seed oil or fish oil in his food to help with "dry skin" or "itch". It's been about 2 weeks since we have made these changes. I have seen a little less bitting but, not much. Does anyone have any other suggestions? or ideas? I guess the next option will be a skin scrape at the vet's office.
