Carlie had a tick issue about a month ago. It's all taken care of and I haven't seen a tick in a long time, but her skin has been dry and flakey since then. It's probably because I put Advantix on her and then saw the ticks the next day so I took her to Petsmart where they picked off all the ticks and gave her a bath that stripped off the Advantix. So I put another dose of Advantix on her because I didn't want her to pick up more. I also had the apartment sprayed for ticks. So I think her skin is just dried out, but it doesn't seem to be getting better. Her food (Wellness Core) has omega fish oils in it, but I've been adding 1 tsp. of olive oil to her food every day to help her skin get better. It's still dry and flakey and her hair has been thinner down the center of her back. I bought some oatmeal and aloe dog shampoo, but if I bathe her with it, then the tick meds will come off so I don't really want to use it. Any suggestions to what could help are appreciated.
