Puppy is terribly itchy and upset about it

hello x dobby is my first Dachshund. hes an amazing little dog but he has been itchy since we got him 2 months ago. i stopped using my carpet cleaner. incase it was the chemicals setting him off. ive given him a oatmeal bath and it worked for a little bit. he is that itchy he crys and stops play. hes chewed off all the hair round his penis. and the hair on his chest is now thinned and the skin dry. theres no redness or soreness inbetween his paws. hes on royal canin. hes gets really frustrated and angry when hes stratching and biting himself.

Did you speak with your veterinarian about this issue? I am just asking because dogs can itch for many different reasons and even sometimes, for no reason. You want to curb this as soon as possible because it's when they start incessantly licking, scratching, biting and chewing to the point they wound themselves, then scratching becomes a symptom of a underlying pathology.

See your vet... several excellent options today for itching regardless of the cause. How old a dog? Might want to have him checked for parasites (fleas or mites (mange)).

Vet up to check for the usual critters but very well may be a food allergy as well.

Usually, there's a reason though? Allergy or critters, often fleas?

It sounds serious if the dog is already removing fur?!?

I need to take my dog to the vet soon! She's always biting herself and licking, especially her paws. Sometimes, she's scratching but it's mostly licking and biting.

I thought it might be a food alergy but no longer think that. I switched from prepared raw chicken to salmon. No real change. I feel bad that it went on this long but I don't have a lot of money at the moment. I owe some $$ for dental work a little while ago.

I was hoping I could figure it out on my own but it's too difficult. Too many factors. I suspect it's either fleas or an allergy - environmental, though.

I sure hope the vet can figure it out. She still rubs her eyes/ears and the vet thought it was due to dental issues but she still does it. I want an accurate and specific diagnosis this time.

OP, don't wait. Take your dog to the vet.

I didn't even think of the pathology part. It better not become a habit. I'm really worried now.
