My 2 year old shih Tzu, Kruser scratches constantly. Even after going to the groomer or a bath at home. I get allergy medicine for him, but it is a hassle to give him a pill 1-2 x d. I've gotten shots for him that are suppose to last 6 wks. but only seem to last 1 week. I give him children's Benedryl which works but makes him sleep. He also sheds bad. We have dog hair on our cloths just from it floating through the air. It is on everything. I don't keep him sheered because he doesn't look good and people ask me what kind of dog he is when he is shaved or cut close. I usually try to keep him in a puppy cut. I wanted to get a female and raise them but I have had so much trouble not to mention expense that I am not doing anything. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE?
There is no cure for allergies so one of the things, or a combo of things, you have tried, you have to stick with. Try a vet dermatologist. Ask your vet for a referral. vetcare
