Jamie - 2015-07-31 I just got a Red nosed pit. She is a beautiful baby, thinks she is a lap dog! ;) but her fur is very stiff, itchy and dry. Any suggestions to help ease the itching for her?
Clarice Brough - 2015-08-06 These little guys are prone to more skin problems than other breeds. It's said they can have allergies to some food ingredients, so you might look into that.
Chrystal - 2015-09-04 Hello my dog has a lot of allergies to grass and stuff. so my vet told me to give my dog benadryl. you will have to ask your vet the dosage. but works great. I a lot give her an oatmeal bath when she starts itching a lot.
