I have a 3 year old newf; well dispositioned and wonderful. However he has had skin problems for the past year. I even started the allergy shots but he is still having terrible flare ups. Has anyone else experienced this with their newfoundlands?

Did you consult your vet on possible allergens? My goldie had skin problems and we solved her issue by changing her food. I also had a friend who had a collie mix who had flare ups when she used a certain type of fabric softener.

Did the skin problems start with a weather change? That could be a factor. I would also try switching to a high quality, grain free food. That helped immensely with our newfie/lab cross.

What kind of dog food are you feeding your newfoundland? Mine had skin problems until we changed to a dog food. Make sure the dog food has no corn in it. I use Blue Buffalo.

Yes I have a four year old Newfie who has to take allergy pills called Atopicia. They are expensive because of her size but she is more than worth it. She has such a wonderful dispostion and is such a member of our family.

Well like some people said it really might be his food. Consult with your local vet just to make sure.
