Beagle Puppy Excessive Itching?

My beagle baby, 10 weeks old has lice when I got her. I have taken her twice to the vet. She has been prescribed shampoo and flea talc. The first day after the bath, she was fine but after 4th day, she is excessively scratching and biting her body. The lice are less as compared to before. But she got no relief from itching. However, while sleeping she is fine. She sleeps soundly and there is no itching But once she wakes it starts aggressively.


I give her drools focus starter dry food, calcium and multi vitamin supplement and nutricoat. I also make sure to deworm every 15 days.

Where am I going wrong? How can I help her?

First off, once your pup is 12 weeks old, decrease your worming to once every three months, unless you see symptoms of worms. As far as the recurring lice, read below.....

Does that mean that I should bathe her everyday?

Yes, for several days in a row. Use a mild shampoo, like baby shampoo, to avoid further irritation to the skin. Also, ANY time you bath a dog (or a cat), make SURE you rinse all the shampoo out of their fur, as that can be the basis of many skin dryness problems, and ultimately scratching problems.

Sounds like shes suffering from extreme dry skin or it could maybe even be eczema. Believe it or not dogs suffer from a lot of things that humans do!! Prescriptions for fleas and ticks can cause a dogs skin to feel dry which therefore it will make them itch more than they were before being treated!! Try an oatmeal shampoo or something that wont dry their coat out!!


You could google a few shampoos thats affordable!! Another secret is cocoanut oil!! Rub him/her down with it after a bath!! You could look into the dog food he/she is eating! Sometimes that will also dry a dogs coat! Good luck and I hope these things help!!

She may have undiagnosed allergies. Consult with your vet before giving her anything

Tea tree oil works well on fleas and ticks on dogs. I think it would help to alleviate lice and dry itchy patches on the skin. Add 1 ap full carefully to 16 ounces of dawn and lather up well getting down to the base coat.


Do not get this into the dogs eyes. Do not use on cats as it is toxic to them.

It may be allergic to food or environmental triggers, including mold and pollen. Puppies/dogs may also develop a skin irritation called contact dermatitis when they encounter substances like pesticides or soap. He may be allergic to the shampoo you are using.

Also poor diets or diets lacking in adequate Omega-3 fatty acids may contribute to dry skin in puppies.
