    Default itching dogs

    4 dogs, all itching...........NO fleas, but they do the sudden itch attack thing that is like a flea itch...................but really, NO fleas..........

    they are on blue buffalo fish and oatmeal, switched from blue buffalo fish and sweet potato.......the oatmeal blend has more oils for skin and hair.......

    so, 4 dogs cannot all be allergic to the same thing at once,right?

    they all play outside a lot, and the clay dirt here is terrible......red dust is evrywhere in the house from the dogs......so, think it could be the clay drying out the skin?......
    no one is flakey,sore, raw.......no typical signs of any skin irritation, just the scratching!
    any help would be great!

    Since you said they play outside alot, I was wondering about mange as a possibility, especially since there are 4 of them, and no fleas. Mabey they got into something.

    Some times mange symptoms take a while to show up (looking mangey) But they could be there. We had a beautiful apricot toy poodle that found a lovely dead carcass, rolled in it real good and guess what?? Yep, way to go FiFi. Gotta love dogs. Good luck.
