    What about Malaseb, or Sebolyse (sp?)? Both are animal shampoos designed for fungal/ skin issues. I cannot remember which does what, though. Both should be available at vet, or larger pet stores... I recall using one or the other (lol) on my Dobe about 20 years ago (!!) when he had dandruff-y, flaky, itchy skin. Can't remember if he was smelly, though.

    Could be worth a try?

    I add Vets All Natural Omega Blend oil to V & F's meals for skin support. But neither have ever had skin issues, so I can't say if it works or not..... :-D

    the oil i have is Value Plus, Omega 3 and 6 plus 9. was the one the vet had on the shelves. i am giving her a little more than recommended...

    Ruby has had a bath with Johnsons No More Tears Baby Conditioning shampoo this morning, i shall see how that goes..

    tessalyn, i use Tile Magic on the floors, but diluted heaps more than recommended, and i rinse with plain water too, and dry it off.. i have never liked using too much on floors anyway, with the cats rolling all over them as they do. she's usually on carpet tho, or her beds, or our bed.

    i will ask around for neotopic h, we have a large Pet Barn, and another large shop i forget the name of locally.

    and if no good, i will then try the ones you have suggested Villain and Flirt! anything is worth a try, something has to make my Rube more comfortable while we figure out what is wrong...

    If you're giving her extra omega 3s, also give extra vitamin E...

    There's a thread in here somewhere, if you feed a lot of fish oil capsules for Omegas, you need to up the vitamin E as well.

    I use a sabco flat mob dry (for the fluff) and then wet with a Shannon Lush mix which is 1 cup vinegar, 1tsp lavendar oil in a 1 litre sprayer topped up with tap water.

    If any of the beds or carpet has an accumulation of dust mites, that might not help either. A wash and then dry in the sun helps with bedding. Talc or bicarb soda vaccuumed off should help a bit with the carpet. I'm not sure you can get rid of dust mites but it does help to reduce their numbers.

    thanks yes.. i usually clean all the pet beds fairly regularly, and i like the dry flat mop too for pet hair, i'm glad i have more tiles than i do carpet.

    vitamin E too.. can't hurt..
