George hasn't had anything to eat in the last couple of days that he doesn't eat all the time, but yesterday I gave him a bath and since then he's been scratching like fury. I used Hartz conditioning shampoo "for all skin types." He'd been doing a lot of scratching already and my husband noticed significant dandruff and concluded that George had dry skin, so I thought conditioning shampoo and a good thorough bath would help. Recently George had an abscess on his tail but it's much, much better, but last night he was gnawing at it again, too. Can I put Cortaid or Neosporin on him or do they make something similar just for dogs? I think it must just be skin irritation. Or maybe it's just been so long since he had a bath that it upset his equilibrium.
