We have a minature schnauzer who suffers from allergies. The vet keeps putting him on prednizone and an antibiotic as well as itarax. None of this is helping. Don't they make something like a claratin for dogs that would prevent the outbreaks?
There is no cure for allergies. Atarax and claratin are both anti-histamines. The truth is anti-histamines don't work great in dogs. You should consider allergy testing. This will at least tell you what allergins contribute to your pets suffering. Talk to your vet about it. Vetcare
