Itching and Scratching!

So my little Mattie is pretty itchy. I have given her a bath 2 Sundays in a row now, I've only had her since July 4th. Her skin seems a bit dry because she gets dandruff and it's easy to see because she is mostly black. She had fleas a couple of weeks ago but we are now on revolution and seem to be flea free. I don't see any redness on her skin or lesions. My yorkie had terrible allergies and was allergic to basically everything. Her skin would get bright red. I don't see this with Mattie so I'm not sure why she's so itchy? Anyone else have this issue??

I would talk to the vet and her breeder. It's not right for a puppy to have dandruff or be itchy.

Ask the vet if he or she thinks it might be flea allergy dermatitis. Even if you are treating for fleas, if they are allergic to flea bites the itching can go on for some time after a bite. Of course it could be anything, but this is one possibility. I hope you can figure it out soon so your baby stops itching!
