It came back...

So about 2 days after the Epsom Salts bath, 1am Sunday morning and Max starts scratching his tummy. His skin was looking pinker so with it being late I covered his tummy in Tea Tree Oil, which stopped the itching instantly but he stink's of tea tree oil now Rolling Eyes plus this problem might be 'on going'.

The plan is:- Epsom Salt bath tomorrow then wait for that medicated shampoo to arrive.

Maxi seems very happy now, here he is with the girls, they've put a glow stick collar on him, just for fun.

Yes that arrived a day or two ago, it didn't give any impressive effects, I think the epsom salts already did that. But the shampoo was not like normal human stuff, it was fragrance free and seemed to have very little lathering to it.

What ever it was that caused this issue, hopefully its gone but ill be better able to help next time.

Kind Regards

I think I read somewhere that human shampoo is harsher than the doggie shampoos. Maybe that was what was causing it. Or the fragrance in it. Hopefully this solves the problem. If not you can also try doggie shampoo and conditioner with oatmeal in it. That helps too. I used those when they were young pups

I'll have to remember Epsom salt!
I don't have a recommendation other than to definitely NOT use a human shampoo. The pH level is way different. I'm sure if you Google you can find a better explanation.
