Hi Guys, 

My precious little 11 month old Soot has had a rough trot. itchy skin is now our issue. 

I feel like every second week im at the vet.. thought I would give the forum a go! :) 

He is currently on Royal Canon Giant breed dry food - recommended by the vet as he had bowing legs ... not sure of the correct term? 
So I'm praying its not food related. 

I've swapped his soaps around at bath time so I don't think thats it?

Has super red paws and under arms which he scratches at a lot. 
could it be an allergy to grass? 

Occasionally rubs his eyes... not too bothered. But it doesn't look pretty.


Has anyone had something similar? 



My biggest concern is his eyes which is pictured. Eye boogers which is normal colour, but just recently wet around his eyes and hair thinning?
Do you think this is related to the potential allergy for the rest of his skin? 

Thanks in advance! 
- Clara

Sorry the poor thing is suffering...sounds like yeast or food allergy. We stopped using Royal Canin Giant and switched to Arden Grange whitefish and potato as it is hypoallergenic...few teaspoons of coconut oil in the feed helps with yeast build up

Malaseb shampoo is a great  anti inflammatory,antifungal...available on line


Good Luck
