Itching where? She could have an allergy to something in her food. My dog would chew his feet like nuts until I figured out he had an allergy to gluten (wheat, barley, oats, etc). Could be a food allergy, could be an allergy to grass or another plant in your yard, could be an allergy to the detergent you use to wash things. You may wish to consider doing an allergy test so you know what it is unless you have a pretty good guess.

Unfortunately no it doesn't mean it's something new, many dogs develope allergies over time. Seems like you also changed her food right? Could she be allergic to the chicken or beef in the food, another ingredient? Just because it's a good food doesn't mean she can't be allergic to something in it. But as I said allergies CAN just pop up one day as an over time thing so it doesn't have to be anything new. Or it could be, someone next door could have planted something she allergic to, a weed or something could have been blown into your yard, really there are a whole SLEW of possibilities.

Thanks again for your help maybe you right is not new.. in the begining she didn't itching and she was eating purina and pedrigree.. I dont have yard, my patio is small, but when I take her to walk could be the yard in my block but if so.. I don't know what to do.. because is where she does poo and pii.. :( probably I will stop to feed her w/ this food till take her to the vet.. and just give her dry food, she doesn't like it but I dont' know what to do.. :(

You could try just plain chicken and rice and see if it goes away, if it does it was an allergy to the food, if not it could still be a chicken or grain allergy but it weeds something out. If it's an allergy to something outside there's medications for that. No sense in switching to dry food, there are a TON of allergens in that too especially since you don't know what it is. I would just leave things the way they are and take her to the vet soon. You could try a grain free food that has a different ingredient panel than the Evo, you can also give some fish oil which may help and then get her into the vet ASAP.

Wellness is a good grain free Wellness Core, they have a Ocean version too if chicken or other poultries are a problem.

And on the oil in her food i'm not sure what you are saying there. Do you ADD an oil to her food? If so which one? Or do you buy a food with oils in it? If so there isn't enough in it to make a difference it's just a marketing gimmick. You can get human fish oil at the store and give a capsule or 2 daily depending on her weight.
