Hi Everyone! Our 1 1/2 year old Golden, Nash, seems to be allergic to shampoo. At first we thought it was a food or environmental allergy, but after many trials, we have found that the rashes, hot spots and itching only happen right after a bath. We didn’t bathe him for almost 8 months, recently tried a bath again, and he is miserable. We have tried non-soap, oatmeal based and prescription shampoos- all the same. We even tried an ACV rinse on him after the shampoo is washed off. He is miserable (biting and itching) at himself for about a month after the bath. Then that leads to the hot spots, and bald spots from him biting at himself. It’s tough not having the option to bathe your dog!
Has anyone else encountered this issue?!
