I have a female chocolate Lab that's a little over a year old that gets bad skin rashes to the point of scabbing up. Her skin always seem a little on the dry side/white flaky now and then. The vet is telling me it's coming from swimming in the river and not being rinsed off immediately? Reality is that just not always possible. We also have 2 pretty good size goldfish ponds in the yard that I have kinda fenced off that she will still put her front legs in and drink out of even when she has a clean water bowel available. Is drinking the pond water bad for her? Yesterday the vet but her on 2 antibiotics,benadryl and a twice a week medicated shampoo to heal her up. I came across an ad in the back of DU mag for Zoom dog Itchy skin anyone have a any experience with it or other suggestion for dry skin? I feel so bad she gets this brokeout but she just loves the water and it's so hard to keep her out of it.
