The scratching stopped for a while and the hair soon grew back but he still has bouts of 'itchiness' especially when hot. I have treated him with frontline spot on for fleas so I don't think that's the problem and I have my doubts if it's mites because neither my other dog nor either of my two cats appears to be affected. I stopped using detergent to wash his bedding some time age so I've ruled that out so I am beginning to think it might be a food allergy of some kind. Does anyone know of a particular food I could try?
