I am new to this forum, I got a rottie X from rspca last week and finally got to take her home two nights ago
Anyway, she is 9 weeks old, and was desexed (I was advised is ok to do earlier now as no difference) and she is doing so well I couldn't believe it!
I noticed when we met her the first time and since then she has flakes in her coat mostly on the back. I checked for anything out of the ordinary but just appears to be dried skin, she scratches a bit but not excessively and sometimes fleas herself, but no fleas and up to date on flea prevention.
Since she's been desexed, we have to keep her dry for another 8 days and I feel terrible this must be annoying her. Anything I can do in the mean time to help the dry skin? I haven't started her on any oily foods or anything yet just dry food. I want to give her something but afraid it's too soon.
Anyone had a similar experience?
