Default Beagle Skin health

We are trying to nurse a beagle back to health...My wife and i found her badly neglected. She is doing much better. We named her Quita. We took her to the vet, They say she is about 6 yrs old and treated her for mange, both with dips and a shot. Her legs were completely bald and blistered. She improved to a point, but still is very itchy and dry. We have given her quality anti allergy foods and skin care shampoos. Hair has not returned completely on her legs. We do not know what else to do. Anyone have any ideas? She is a great dog and very happy and friendly, but we want to get her coat healthy.

You mentioned you're feeding anti allergy food -perhaps look into if it's ok to add to the diet foods that may help the nutrition and vitamin content which would help the skin. In addition to kibble I feed cooked chicken, green beans, carrots, yogart, apple,salmon, egg. My dog is 13 months but I have noticed that her coat is particularly shiny and thick and I think the food she eats may have a lot to do with it.

Good for you to take such good care of your dog. Hope things get better.

I too adopted a beagle with horrific mange. This is the picture they used on Petfinder.

With everything my vet was doing she was still in such misery. I used Aveeno oatmeal soaks. Twice a day I would put her in a tepid bath and add the Aveeno. It soothes the itching. I did it for almost a month but it got to the point Lilly would look forward to her bath. My vet was really amazed at how well her hair came back. She had the prettiest coat of all my pack. I hope your little beagle feels better soon.

I add olive oil (just a swirl) to Jesse's meals. My trainer suggested balancing that with fish oil, which we haven't yet. I feel the itching (which she attributes to anxiety) has reduced and his coat is pretty shiny.

I would try adding fish oil into her diet.

Salmon is a great source of omega 3 fish oil. I buy small cans of pink salmon in the market in the tuna section. Cassie loves it

We feed Rascal Costcos' Salmon and Sweet Potato and she is doing very well on it. Rascal had hives when we first adopted her from all the stress of being dumped and put in the pound.

I started using salmon oil about 2 months ago to help with their winter dryness and itchiness and it really helps. They love the flavor on their food too.
