    I am sure many of you have a dog that have had some type of allergy. I hope that someone can give me helpful advice without spending a wad of $ at the vets office like I have the last few weeks.
    I have a 4 month old shih Tzu that scratches and bites herself. She was on an antiboitic and that did not help. I have changed her food once and am limiting her baths.
