Skin problem related to diet?

Post by Tompacker » Thu Dec 05, 2019 1:43 pm

Hi, we have a 3 year old female chow called dolly, we regimes her a year ago and she has always had sensitive skin. Her coat always seems greasy and smelly no matter how many times we bath her. She has suffered various times with hair loss and saw skin. You can literally pull clumps of loose hair out. We have been to our vets multiple times and they always treat her with 2 weeks antibiotics and some antifungal wash. Although this solves the problem quickly, the tablets Soon where off and we are back at the beginning. The vet advised changing her current (Arkwright) dry food with royal canine hypoallergenic food for 8 weeks.
Has anybody got any experience in the above. Or recommend any other dog food other than royal canine?
Many thanks Tom
