Hi there Cheryl,

We also had a mini dachshund with a skin problem. We took him to the vet a couple of times and they gave him some pills. We later noticed that the irritation became worse with grass. We now give him Bobmartin pills every day once a day. From the time we started it he has never had any problem with his skin.

Hope it helps for you little one.
