Yes, we are having the same problem. A well trained starving English Setter showed up at our house. He has been fully vetted with steriod injections, liquid vitamins for several weeks, and 3-4 meals a day to get healthy. It has been two months now and he itches and bites at himself all the time. We have 3 other dogs that have been with us (youngest is 7) and none of them have this issue, we do not have fleas or ticks, etc. We have tried different shampoos also. Nothing is working yet.

We had the same problem with one of our dogs. He was an older dog that had been inside his entire life. He was having the problem because of dry skin that was brought on by something in the house. He was allergic to something we cleaned with. When we decided to put him out more often, the problem stopped.
