Our 17 month old female fawn seems to rub against the side of our couch as if she is itchy sometimes. She also shakes her whole body and rubs the side of her face on the carpet too. This is not a constant action, but quite often. She has been to the vet for checkups and recently spayed (she did this before spaying) and she does not have fleas. She had an injury a few months ago and was put on steroids, and she even behaved like this while on the medication,which the vet said was odd since steroids are prescribed for allergies. We had had a nylon halter on her most of the time and tried taking it off for awhile,but she still rubs and shakes. We switched her food to Nutro Lamb & Rice for Large Dogs which she seems to like ok. We even put some earmite meds in her ear to see if that would help with no luck(even the vet didn't find mites). I am wondering if anyone has had similar symptoms with their boxer? I wonder sometimes if it could be a nervous condition of some kind? She LOVES to be scratched and her leg "dances" when I do. Her skin doesn't appear to be flakey or dry and we bathe her once a month with oatmeal formula dog shampoo. Thanks for any ideas on this type of behavior.
