How to approach causes of itching

July 14, 2015, 1:15 PM

My Shih Tzu puppy Zoey is 10 weeks old and she scratches all the time.  Her vet told me to give her benadryl, but she gags on it so I got some epi-soothe shampoo from the vet.  I've only used it on her once, but the scratching has not slowed down.  What do I need to do?  She has been on Diamond puppy food ever since she started eating puppy food.

Before we can begin to figure out how you should treat your puppies itchy skin I need a little more information.  How long has it been a problem?  Is there any redness, rash or dandruff?  Where does she scratch the most?
