I had a Lab several years ago that seemed to have the same symptoms. I had him allergy tested. Once that was done I changed his food to vegetarian.
He had allergis to:
and I'm sure there are more that I can't remember.
He had allergy shots on a regular basis and over the counter allergy medication prescribed by my Vet.
One of the side affests of his allergies was a con cip smelling oil that emmenated from his body. I bathed him every 3 days with a tar based shampoo. It kept him from scratching large patches of fur from comming out. After treatment and various sample diets, I found the right one. He was my constant companion until he died.
