Why does my dog keep scratching her stomach?

My dog is constantly scratching at her stomach. I looked but I don't really see anything there. Why would she be scratching there so much?

This sounds like she has itchy dry skin, which very often is caused by an allergic reaction to something. Here's are some articles about it. http://thebark.com/content/vet-advice... http://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/... http://www.peteducation.com/article.c... (this shows a chart w/ possible issues)

I have exactly the same problem with my dog and it is frustrating to get the same answer , dry skin . So I'm guessing she only has dry skin on her belly . No rash no fleas I'm beginning to think the problem is on the inside . Maybe it's vet time

Hi Kile, My dog has the same symptoms. I am also inclined to think that the issue is on the inside. Did you find out what was the reason that your dog was itching her belly? Thanks, Sonya

I have been to 4 different Vets including a dermatologist to help my poor little Rosie. She has the same issue. The sad thing is no one can give me an answer why. I feel so bad for her, I know she’s uncomfortable. I’m on limited income and can’t afford $350 every vet visit. What can I do for her?

Sonya, I had the third vet do a ultrasound on Rosie’s tummy. There was nothing there that would cause her scratching tummy so much. I truly wish I could get an answer For her. It’s so sad not getting one. I always hear this - try this for 2 weeks and come back. Every visit is at least $300.
