itchy scratchy ears
#1
Is Your Dog Itching ?
No known cause, not fleas........
It is more likely to be a yeast infection. Dogs and humans have yeast on skins naturally however occasionally the natural production goes into overdrive. Many immediately shout its an allergy, its food issues, well it IS NOT no matter what test you have at the local vets. 
The local tests are NOT ACCURATE and don't tell if there are possible environmental links other than the usual dust mites or flea bite allergy. 
Food is another area the local vet will suggest it is when it isnt, for decades poor Jasper Carrot lived on virtually nothing because a blood test he had revealed he was intolerant to almost everything, he after decades looking skeletal went and got some new tests done and they showed him he was NOT intolerant to almost everything he had at first envisaged due to inaccurate tests which today are still as inaccurate but many owners will not believe you because you don't have the title vet or doctor. Trust me they are not oracles, they most studied modules until they passed them, they are trained to pass exams not to be good at their job !
Brown paws, brown skin , constant biting of feet and flanks, scratching of ears all point to a yeast (candida) overload which must be reduced to normal levels before the dog bites or licks itself to the point of screaming (yes I have witnessed this myself when treating dogs )

HOW TO FIX
_____________________________________________
Start with elimination diet which must run the course of the treatment regime .
Buy 1 novel protein the dog isnt used too such as venison, horse, goat, kangaroo , ostrich, crocodile etc
Buy 1 carbohydrate that the dog again isnt used too such as quinoa
Cook and mix, place in bags enough to feed daily for individual dog- the rest package up in weighed bags freeze and take out night before next day feeding.
NO OTHER FOOD IS PERMITTED NOT EVEN A BISCUIT OR A PIECE OF CRUST FROM YOUR TOAST.... This is important
This must continue for the initial phase of 12 weeks whilst other treatment is ongoing
_____________________________________________

Buy Malaseb, OR Alphosyl OR Polytar or ANY QUALITY medicated shampoo
Bathe Fido x 2 weekly leaving shampoo on for 10 minutes then rinse and comb, dry naturally or on low heat setting combing to remove any tatts that will encourage Fido to chew at to remove

______________________________________________
Buy from Amazon or Ebay CLX Wipes -
THIS IS IMPORTANT
Clean EVERY part of your dog, its lips, around eyes, ears, whole body under coat (RUB HARD ) private parts, foot pads inside too, nails including nail beds, tummy bum THERE ISNT ANY PART OF FIDO YOU MISS OUT
Do this daily IN BETWEEN the 2 x bathing

________________________________________________
Buy ANY anti candida tablets and give them to Fido daily for the whole 12 weeks

__________________________________________
You can give the dog if it is itching excessively prednisilone tabs x 1 daily but check with your vets first, this is a steroid and can encourage Fido to be hungry and drink more etc.
It is a well tolerated steroid

_____________________________________________
By doing all of the above and doing it CORRECTLY it isnt a 5 minute job , using the CLX wipes is a task in itself because you must do every single nail bed and nail fully not just a quick wipe over. when I show owners how they should perform this task it takes about 3 minutes PER NAIL and toe !!!
____________________________________________
STOP

Using the following in the car or in your home immediately
Air fresheners, carpet fresheners, scented grooming products, perfumes around Fido, scented disinfectants Talcum powder (this shouldn't ever be used by babies or dogs as it sticks to the inside of the lungs and causes cancer later on in life )

START
Hoovering daily all carpets and EMPTY the bag outside well away from Fido

Using bleach as the only disinfectant , dilute it and again not near Fido, allow floors to dry before they play on it
STOP 
Using ANY Washing powders that are highly scented or have fabric softeners included

USE ONES RECOMMENDED FOR NEW BORN BABIES
_________________________________________________
By doing all of the above within just 2 weeks you will see a HUGE difference in Fido and its usual biting itching tendencies
________________________________________
After 12 weeks start to reduce the regime to suit your dog and you may add normal food to the diet slowly reduce the novel protein /carbs being used. IF THEY START ITCHING AGAIN THEN REMOVE ALL FOODS ADDED and stick to the elimination diet for life 
If using the steroid tablets reduce do not just stop, so use 3 tabs per week for 2 weeks then 1 tablet 2 days per week on consecutive days for 2 weeks then 1 tablet for 1 week then stop
IT IS IMPORTANT NEVER TO JUST STOP STEROIDS WITHOUT TAPERING DOWN !
