It can be very difficult to determine the cause of the scratching. Have any diagnostic test been conducted? If not it would be advisable to do the basics (skin scrape, microscopic evaluation e.t.c.) to determine the cause of the itch. If failing this then you can consult a Veterinary dermatologist. Dr Martin Briggs is a specalist in veterinary dermatology and he can be located in Newlands, Cape Town.
