    Hi Amber, I recommend that you take Nala into see a veterinarian. The symptoms that you are describing can be caused by allergies but there can be other underlying causes as well. These include fleas, skin mites, infection, food allergies, or even certain underlying metabolic or medical issues. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her symptoms after they have examined her. The treatment that will work best for her will depend on the underlying cause and severity of her symptoms.
