allergies or something else?
Lately, Tugger has been getting a skin rash on his head and neck area. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with this type of rash. It looks like tiny dry, crusty, scabs under his fur and it is only around his head, ears, neck and chest areas. He is not loosing fur and doesn't seem really itchy and is otherwise healthy. I have not seen any indication of fleas on him. I am hoping that it is due to a change in food I made from Fromms Salmon to Fromms Duck and Potato. We have now switched back to the Salmon. But, I was hoping for advice from anyone familiar with allergies,
1. How long does it take for food allergies to get better once the allergy prone food has been removed?
2. Is it helpful to use something like an oatmeal bath or an antiseptic skin shampoo, to speed along the healing of the skin.
3. We cut his coat short, is there anything else that could help with healing the skin?
Thanks for any advice
