Dear Pauline

Can be Sarcoptic mange. Dip them once a week with Ectodex for 4 weeks.

It' s also not a bad idea to switch flea products now and then - frontline stopped working on my dogs (or rather: on their fleas) a while back, so I switched to Advantage. Sooner or later, I' m sure I' ll have to change back again.

Check with your vet but a lot of people use allergex tablets for itchy dogs. Use Frontline every 21 days if needed and spray carpeting,bedding etc. with Flego or Ultrum Duration. Look at putting them on a Sensitive Skin diet like Vets Choice Sensitive, Eukanuba Special Care Sensitive Skin or Hills Sensitive Skin.They may have flea allergy dermatitis where one flea bite causes an " allergic"  reaction.
