Hi, I got a 8 year old Lhasa Apso named Cococa and for a long time he been itching and digging himself. He don't have many or none fleas on him but he still does it. My vet says its allergies but I don't know anybody got a Lhasa Apso dog at all that has this problem. I'm open to any ideas or suggestions at all.
Hi, I put flea stuff on him too each month.
Hi, I took him to the vet before and they never did give me anything for him itching and digging at all.
I have a 7 year old Lhasa with the same problem (Comet). The vet also diagnosed it as flea allergies. She can have just one flea on her and she chew herself up. She's leaves big sores on her back end as a result and I feel so sorry for her. Advantage/Frontline have not provided me with the results I want so I have resorted to bathing her 2-3 times daily with just plain Dawn dishsoap and then following up with a moisturizing conditioner. I towel dry her as opposed to using the dryer which seems to be more drying and then follow with a flea spray (Adam's works well). Also, I give her half of a benydryl when itching becomes unbearable. It makes her drowsy so I don't like to do it often, but it does help with the scratching/chewing.
Please let me know if you find any other good suggestions.
