Cojack Q&A

My Cojack Roo Roo (looked like a baby kangaroo when I got him at 3 months, rescue) has alot of allergies, does this seem typical for Cojacks? I heard that Corgi's do. My vet is now recommeding allergy testing to see whet is causing this. He has to be on meds at all times. My poor baby claws himself to death and scratches all the time if not on these high priced meds. I hate to see him like this. I have tried change meds. But I would like to know if others have this problem also. He has the Corgi body, Corgi ears, and tail, and Jack hair and nose. A loveable puppy that hates men due to his abuse, and was very easy to train though I got him at 3 months. I would b lost without him and him me. We are joined forever. I would love to post a pic of him with his favortie blanket after bath time. thank you

My cojack is allergic to many things. The best thing we did was allergy testing. Once we found a food that worked his skin cleared. No chicken, no corn, no fish, and on the list goes. Grass is also a no no, so we have to walk only in the street. He goes on grass to potty and that's it. He is a funny little guy, we adore him. Another friend also has a cojack and has some of the same issues. I would not recommend this combo continue to be bred. Mine is a rescue because the previous owner wouldn't deal with all these issues. Good luck...your vet will appreciate you financing her child's college education :)

Hi.I got a Cojack too,a rescue.Best dog! Consider changing his diet. Most dog food has a lot of chemicals in them in the shape of food colouring etc.Could you cook for him(very simple food,no spices)every few days? I also give mine a teaspoon of extra virgin coconut oil(in jars,easily available on the net,not that expensive)daily.I use Simple shower gel when having to bathe him,no perfume/colouring.That's what I do and it is worth a try.Good luck.


I have had my Cojack only 4 weeks now, got him at 16 months old. He seems to scratch a bit, he is pink under the feet, and alittle around the mouth. I give him a 'Polaramine' a day or when he scratches more than usual, and he seems very happy after 30 minutes. You can get them at the pharmacy over the counter. I used it previously on my Jack Russell, and eventually the itching stopped. Its an anti hystamine. My vet told me about it.


I made a comment below in regards to using 'polar-amine' anti histamine, it works on my dog, 1 a day, I wrap it in a tiny bit of cheese, swallows no problem, I have cut out all chicken, beef, lamb, make sure to check biscuits and treats as well, clear the pantry....and only give him cooked kangaroo, and horse meat....cook 60-40-40 meat, veg, rice, he loves it, and has stopped most of the scratching...search web for recipes.


I have a Cojack named Reggie. He has had some skin allergies...constant chewing until it bleeds! He is on grain-free food...it seems to have done the trick! Fur has grown back and no scratching...yay!
