Dog Scratching and Biting Herself

My Rottweiler started scratching and biting herself a few months back, we started off feeding her Bakers when she was young, but it seemed to be a little bit too rich for her stomach. Then we have been feeding her Breeders Pack which seemed to settle her stomach. Now she's 2.


I took her to our vet for an examination and advice regarding the scratching and the vet seems to think it's an allergy with her food as she doesn't have any signs of having fleas. We are now feeding her Hills Canine Z/D, but it doesn't seem to be working. Has anyone got any advice as she is living with a buster collar on all the time as she makes herself bleed.

My ROTTI who had some allergies did well on a rice and lamb diet. Most dog food manufacturers make lamb and rice. Any diet that the dog goes on will take several weeks to start working. So be patient when starting on a new diet.
