Dry,itchy flakey skin

shellmOctober 27, 2012

My 2 yr old male choc lab skin has become very dry,flakey and itchy.Need advice on how to help him.He is on a lamb/rice dog food for sensitive skin.He goes to doggie day camp 1 day week,they have been having water fun day on the day he goes and gets a bath there afterwards.Im wondering if the weekly bathing is causing this?Im sure it cant help.He is otherwise very healthy.No fleas or ticks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

IMO, weekly bathing of a dog is excessive. Labs have a natural oil in their coats which protects them when they are in the water retriving ducks.
