Oh wow…my six year old has had a lifetime of issues with her skin. We have tried most every shampoo, Ultra Oil in her food (which helps alot), medicated shampoos from the vet, you name it, we’ve tried it. She is stable most of the time. She is on Pro plan, but still has to have apoquel and benadryl to control itching. She is the sweetest baby.

I found it was allergy to his food. Switched that out and itching went away. I think many boxers can’t do chicken.

Our boy used oatmeal shampoo, seemed to work good. His diet was a big control point for addressing his itchiness also. If they get yeasty paws (kinda smells like frito chips lol) we would gently dip and wipe them with apple cider vinegar.
