Lab Allergies

4 posts in this topic

I have a black lab we adopted 4 years ago, he's probably 8 years old. He was having problems with allergies, he would lick his feet constantly during certain times of the year. Now I have noticed that his skin is really dry and scratchy. He goes nuts rolling around in the grass trying to itch his back.

Anyone have experience with this? What could it be?

to me it sounds like its just dry skin, try giving a few raw eggs over his foodfor a few days or wheat germ is another good option. Dry skin can drive a dogs nuts, also for the long term you may want to change its diet.

my lab had allergies and I started feeding her nutro dog foods, it worked for the dry skin, but she started the licking again. the vet said that some dogs just develop a nervous habit.

we had her on prednisone it worked great but 2 weeks after she was weaned off it the licking started again. they sell it at fleet farm.

My yellow has allergies. I give her baths with shampoo called histacalm, really rub the shampoo in and let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes, it helps her alot. You have to get the shampoo from a vet, only place I have found it. gl

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
