I am just about to adopt a 4 year old westie from a rescue centre. She has atopic dermatitis. I have been told by friends who have treated dogs before that feeding them a special sensitive diet can really help. She has recently been very stressed because her elderly owner died and I don't know exactly what she went through but I think she had a pretty hard time of it. She lost most of her fur but it is growing back and they say she has been responding well to treatment. I know that skin conditions are common in westies. She is a very sweet natured dog and I am sure once she settles in she will start to improve even more. Does anyone have any diet tips for me?
I would be grateful for any advice.
