    Guys I need your help.
    I live on very small city. My Westie Dora have 9 months.
    She start itchy, I change her food, avoid treats.
    She get better.
    But three days ago She start itchy and scratching hard.
    I have only 1 vet on my city. He prescrive medicine only for her ear (she got hurt).
    But She still itchy, I buy products from amazon, will arrive today. Is vet's best Allergy Itchy relief Shampoo and Yumega.
    I think the trigger for allergy was the last grooming. They remove a lot of hair from her ears.
    Maybe now the hair start growing.
    But I need advice from the other owners with more experience. I really need your help guys.
    Forgive my bad english.
    I research a lot. But I'm a vet.
    @McKenzie @Westie Mum I saw many westie owners here. Please. Help me.

    Where is she itching - is it just her ear? You say her ear got hurt - what happened to it?

    You said she was itchy before and you changed her food and she stopped itching. How long ago did you change her food and what are you feeding her?

    Has she been treated for fleas?

    Tks for reply.
    Before I give her Royal Canin puppy dry food. Because She came from the petshop with this dry food.
    For training, I used carrots for rewards.
    She was protected with frontline.
    When She start itching, I research and stop to give carrots. She on day after get better.
    After one week she start itching again.
    I change her dry food for Taste of Wild, grain free, only fish protein, no eggs.
    She was fine.
    One month ago She already grooming, and remove a lot of hair from her ears.
    So, She start itching again three days ago, more hard on the ears.
    She now not protected with frontline because I planed to bath her first.
    The vet give me one medicine only for treatment on her ear during 10 days.
    I planned to shower her with this shampoo from vet's best brand and after that give a frontline.
    So, thats the history.
    Again forgive my bad english.
