We had a dog that had that problem. Her skin was dry the vet said, and so he recommended some medicine that helped. Plus we also added extra oil into her diet such as vegetable oil on her food and extra fat. Vitamin E oik in very good for that poblem Just put some on the food or give them a vitamin e everyday. Dogs love vitamin E. =Answer= Please don't start treating your dog on your own until you take the dog to a vet. The dog may have fleas or what they call "hot spots" (the dog feels hot in one area and very itchy." The other poster is correct in saying that there are medications for that. I am dealing with my own part Bichon Frise x Terrier and have had her to the vet for medications and she's doing fine.
