  1. Hey Guys, Got a quick question that you might be able to help with. I have a blue trike color American bully pup he is 11 weeks old and he scratches and chews at himself constantly. I have him on grain free Blue Buffalo chicken kibble. I know many of these dogs have skin problems especially the blues. My vet said he is to young for allergies. I read on another forum that sometimes chicken can also affect them the same way so I am currently switching over to Blue buffalo grain free red meat based puppy kibble. Is there anything I can massage into his skin to moisturize it?

    Hi, congrats on the new pup. My Vet said he sees a lot of allergies with Blue Buffalo food in general.

    We live in the southwest and allergies are really bad right now in the environment. I would wipe him down with a damp and dry rag if he rolls around in the grass. Also, wipe in between his toe pads really well.

    He might do much better on a raw diet. I wouldn't massage anything into his skin but you could wipe him down with a good quality wipe to keep him clean and less itchy. Also, his bedding and blankets need to be very clean and free of perfumes, etc. I only use vinegar in my house when I wash floors, etc.

    I was thinking that too or Puppy Demodex? It could also be some sort of parasitic infection?
