What can you do to give relief of itching I gave my 16 wk puppy a bath this is the third time but something is making her itch this time

If you do not see any rash or sores the most common reason for itching in young puppies is dryness.  Bathing often contributes to the problem.  It is best to use a mild shampoo like aloe and oatmeal followed by a leave on conditioner.  Using a fatty acid (Omega 3) supplement is the best long term approach but it takes several weeks of giving it before you can judge the benefits.
