I've got an 18 month old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie Mix named Koda. Our winters are pretty dry and cold here (in Idaho), and I believe that may at least be a contributor to Koda's skin irritation. I've noticed it off and on for the last six months, but just the last week it's come back again. He used to eat Grandma Z's Lamb & Vegetable adult kibble, but we just switched to Purina One Lamb and Rice Smart Brand about two months ago because it was less expensive and I'm not getting as many hours at work lately. For treats, he gets these chicken jerky treats from Zamzows. And of course, he always has fresh, cool water available 24/7, both inside and outside (Although he's primarily an inside dog.) He doesn't get bathed too often, maybe once every few months. I use a gentle oatmeal shampoo for that. We often go for 8+ mile runs in the foothills, although we've been doing that since he's been old enough and trained enough for that (about 8 or 9 months now). I don't think it's food allergies because he's not itchy along his stomach or flanks, just around his mouth and eyes. He's lost a little hair around his eyes and his lips look a little how human lips get when they're chapped. What can I do to relieve dryness and itchiness? (Adding something to his water, food, bathwater, etc...) Any other suggestions? This doesn't seem like a serious health issue to me, but I just like him to be as comfortable as possible. And would rather not take him to the vet for something that's not serious, because as I said, money's a little tight for most people nowadays. Thank you in advance!
