When we first brought Flo

Welcome to Pitbulls.org Forums Pit Bull Talk Health Dry skin??? When we first brought Flo


When we first brought Flo home, she had bald spots and was so itchy – so I started flipping out and googleing like crazy.  I found info regarding mange which talked about bathing a dog in motor oil – that sounds super dangerous on so many levels so I kept searching – turns out, cooking oil does the same thing – it suffocates the mites.  I still am not sure that is what she had, but I lathered the spots with regular cooking oil maybe 4 times and *poof* they were gone!

She has a few dry spots now on her rear end – mostly I think because her spay was far from the simplest I have ever seen(that’s a post to whole other issue) – so she wasn’t able to get a pampering oatmal bath for over a month -anyway, I think I will try the fish oil & olive oil in her food and see if that helps.

Thanks! & best of luck w/ the pups!
