Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question
Sorry to hear about Zain's itching .
I can help you in regards XXXXX XXXXX to but for the meantime but I would advise to see your vet for this itching can be something seasonal or even something in his food which might be causing it - furthermore I dont want him to develop a "hotspot" at this location he is itching so you need to be careful
what you can get from your local Boots would be a drug called ' Piriton'
It usually comes in 4mg tablets and you don't need a prescription for it .
In regards XXXXX XXXXX use the following :
hi, we have put a collar on him at present as hes chomping on his hind leg. He had a small spot and has irritated it. this is an on going thing. Yes he does have a hotspot but this is not the area.
give a 4 mg tablet every 8 hours to begin with .
if he is still itchi you can double the dose to 8mg at but no more
This might make him somewhat sleepy so don't be worried
You can always keep a stock handy when you need them
I hope this helps
he is quite a lively large german shepherd. not over weight but big. but hes really not happy with collar on hes sulking.

I will do my best to answer .
