Itchy Foster Dog


I'm a foster mom for Cairn Terriers. One of my current fosters is about 9 years old. She lived in a kennel all her life until she was turned over to rescue. Now she's enjoying living inside a house and getting good food and loving care. She has dry eye which was basically untreated before she was rescued. She also has very itchy skin. She has had several hot spots but has not had any for several months. I give her Benedryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) three times a day and half of a 5 mg. prednisone tablet every other day. She is still itchy. I purchased Homeopet brand 'Skin and Itch Relief'. It stopped her itching cold the first time I gave it to her. However, it has helped less and less as time went by. I just finished the bottle this morning. She weighs about 15 lbs.

Can someone help this sweet dog?
Thank you!

Thank you Dr. Mahfooz! Unfortunately I know little about Homeopathy so have more questions. Would it be Echinacea Purpurea or Echinacea Angustifolia?

Also are you saying to give 5 ml. of each tincture three times a day for a week? That would mean I'd have to purchase 100 ml. of each tincture? Is this correct?

I am very grateful for your help!
