Jack Russell Puppy Scratches Constantly
Our Ellie and neighbor Betty-boop
What a great site!!!! I am glad I've found it...
We have a wonderful 21 month old female Jack Russell. We love her dearly and she is so well behaved and has learned many tricks. As far as we know she is in great health...You may ask then what is your question?
QUESTON: We (husband and I) baby (dog) sit our neighbors 6 month old female Jack Russell who weighs 9 lbs... She scratches from time too time(almost constantly) and for long periods at a time. She does this at her owners home and in our home. She is fed Purina Puppy chow. She is very active. She is also very muscular from running with the neighbors larger dogs. Is very active outside dog. She is allowed outside for long periods but inside long periods as well. She does not have fleas. We have both checked her continually. Does anyone have any suggestions for us? I am told that they bathe her once a week and use a conditioner on her. We do not bathe our own dog that often. Could bathing so often be a scratching problem? Could the food she's eating be a problem? What????
Thank you for any and all suggestions.....jEN
