My Shih Tzu had the same problem when we first got him. I tried so many dog foods .....grain free, etc. then he got hot spots from the itching. Took him to the vet to be treated, while there Dr. Told me there's a Prescription diet for skin support ( Shih Tzu's typically have itching problems).

So I bought Hills Science prescription d/d. Comes in potato/salmon, and potato/duck. Itching has gotten so much better. Still itches some, but not like before.

BTW......this food is only available thru your vet.

Dog allergy to foods
by: Jeannine

I have found that my Shih Tzu is allergic to chicken. he itched, his eye ran all the time and got little sebaceous lumps, I have changed his food to Holistic Select anchovy & sardine and salmon. after many different dog foods all symptoms have gone away.
