Dry scabs on my springers skin

by Vanessa
(Manchester)

My 9 months old springer keeps getting dry crusty scab like patches on her skin. She has been to the vet and we have had antibiotics but they keep coming back. She is very active, up to date with the jabs and we don't take her walking in woods.

Do you feed dried food or tinned? If tinned could be an allergy try sensitive dry food.

Does your dog swim? My springer gets these scabs also, from what I uderstand from the vet its a allergic reaction to the bacteria in the pond water. Viaderm cream seems to takes care of the problem.

Scabs NEW

Unfortunately, skin problems can be something that plaque Springers. Try adding a nice oil combination to her food once daily:

5 oz. extra virgin olive oil
1 oz. cod liver oil
1 oz. wheat germ oil
1 oz. flaxseed oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed rosemary
1/2 teaspoon garlic

Mix all of this together and store in a dark colored bottle in the refrigerator. Give 1 teaspoon over her food each day. Within a couple weeks you should see a big difference. Also, research the dog food you are feeding. Commercial brands foods are horrific. Go to www.dogaware.com to research food.
