Itching Dogs
WE HAVE A SPANIEL AND A BOERBULL, THEY ARE FOR EVER SCRATCHING, WE HAVE CHECKED THEM FOR FLEA'S AND TICKS BUT HAVE FOUND NONE, WE HAVE TRIED ALL KINDS OF DOGGY SHAMPOO FROM THE PET SHOPS THINKING THEIR SKIN DRY BUT NOPE STILL SCRATCHING, WE HAVE EVEN CHANGED THEIR DOG FOOD (PELLETS).

ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHAT MIGHT BE CAUSING THE ITCHING? THEY GET REALLY FRUSTRATED ITCHING SO MUCH AND WE REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT :(
