Itchy Shih Tzu – I can help!
If you have found this post, I understand you are desperate for accurate information and help.
If your itchy shih tzu has a rash on the belly and the groin and the axilla or has a history of ear infections, it is likely that your pet suffers from allergies.
Flea allergy causes a dermatitis and pruritis on the lower back and around the tail base.
Atopy causes your dog to lick its feet constantly, scratch and lick the tummy, between the hind legs, in the arm pit of the front legs and may cause your shih tzu to rub the abdomen (tummy) on the carpet, grass or concrete.
Atopy is extremely common. It usually starts after eighteen months to two years of age ie the dog seemed fine for the first year or so then suddenly developed skin problems.
If your puppy has problems or your shih tzu started having skin problems from a very young age, you need to consider the possibility of adverse food reaction also known as food allergy. The shih tzu with food allergy often has constant ear infections and an itchy bottom.
