The veterinarian had probably suggested frequent bathing as a treatment for the dog's skin problem, as Bulldogs are unfortunately prone to many skin diseases, and I typically recommend bathing with a mild oatmeal shampoo 1-2 times weekly in dogs with itchy skin
. The most common reasons for itchy skin
in dogs include skin
infections, microscopic skin parasites such as fleas, scabies or demodex mites, food allergy, or pollen/dust allergies.
