Your border collie may be itching because it has fleas, a skin rash, an infection or a bug bite. All of these cause itching in dogs.

Common culprit for dog itching would be ticks or mites. If there is no visible sign of these parasites, then it is most likely mange. See a veterinarian right away.

She could have allergies, Or it is possible she could have the mange, or flea allergy dermatitis. You can treat the latter with a product called Revolution. It is for heartworm prevention, fleas, and mites that cause the mange. Revolution is available from your vet and should only be given if she tests heartworm negative.

She could be allergic to something in her food. Try her on a dog food without grain as dogs can be allergic to grain.

There are a lot of things, like flees, ticks, or simply dried out irritated skin. Try giving your dog a bath, scrubbing deep and rinsing your dog's fur thoroughly.
