After a bath with human shampoo, baby shampoo for the face and conditioner on the legs to make brushing easier, my toy poodle always licks his front paws for days after but this time he it itching the body more than normal, mainly back legs. NO physical signs though.

Even though their are No physical signs Max has been to the vet in the past and the vet has given a thorough inspection an says he just makes a big fuss, and I believe this is true. My first girl poodle didn't squeak and itch like this.

Any idea of a better shampoo or something that might give him a bit more relief?

Sudocreme - That stuff they use on chapped babies bums. My poor boy is covered in white creme and its getting transferred all over my bed but he is content so I am too. For now.

Would still like a suggestion for a better shampoo?

My poodles are very sensitive to shampoos too. I use CC day to day shampoo, followed by CC Thick N Thicker, then Ice on Ice spray before blow drying them.

I really like their products. No more itching and dry flaky skin after switching to their products. I use to use oatmeal shampoo and oatmeal conditioner on them. It was better but they were still itchy. After switching to CC products everything was good

To be honest I've just bought an expensive product called Combined DermOpt. But your CC products are available from a place in the UK called http://www.showdogdirect.co.uk I'm going to get in touch with them now.

Mixi's tummy is starting to turn red where he is itching so I'm going to do all I can to help him.

Many Thanks

EPSOM SALTS - Like the page says "Its a Miracle cure for itchy dogs" and thank God, because I had some at home and I couldn't bare my little man suffering any longer.

Im sure medicated shampoo's would do the trick too, but I put 2 table spoons of Epsom salts in the washing up sink, dropped his 2 back legs in and bathed the itchy bits and it was an instant cure.

Embarassed Actually I've just caught him licking again, maybe its natural for dogs after suffering for 2 days. Ill keep my eye on it though. Few, he stopped after 30 seconds.

Thanks for your help and ill let you know how he gets on. Cheers

EPSOM SALTS WORKS!!!

Its been a couple of hours and yes like any normal dog he keeps having a quick play with the original itchy sites, but the problem is over.

I want to add that my dog has regular vet check ups and has the best flea/mite protection, so I knew it wasn't that.

Thanks for any help Smile

He probably just has really sensitive skin. But a good shampoo is a must since poodles are bathe so often. My 2 gets a bath every 2 weeks. It use to be once every week then I slacked and it's once every 2 weeks now.

If you get the CC products let me know how it works for you

Well my little man isn't a show dog, infact I'm not sure he was even allowed to breed on his certificate, but that didn't matter to me, he was the last and scarred on his own so I had to save him. We don't bath him so often because he doesn't like the brushing. Unless its summer when he likes a swim.

My little man is sleeping beautifully now, so I'm very happy. We will definitely be checking out those shampoo's, the ones I've ordered first.

Thanks for your help
