Question by sta: Any good ideas for skin problems in a Newfoundland?
Our Newf has severe dry skin. It is dry and scabby. When I brush him the brush is full of white flakes, looks a little like oatmeal. He also has hard gray bumps on his elbows. We have tried steroids (made him pee all over the house), antibiotics, antibacterial sprays, anti-itch sprays. Nothing seems to help. He does not bite at it, but licks constantly.

Try changing his diet. Omega 3 fatty acid supplements are available and really help with skin problems. Bathe him in oatmeal shampoo or hypoallergenic shampoo. If none of these seems to help, he may need to have allergy shots weekly from the vet!
