My dog, Shadow, has had allergies every since we got him in 1996, but now its turned into a real problem as he is constantly scratching, rubbing his back under my truck till he bleeds, and his eyes are alwaus stuck together in the mornings. He has an awful odor that bathing doesn't help. Please help me as we have spent nearly $2,000 on him in the last year. So any advise would be appreciated, because no Vets has yet to cure him.
Well, to be honest with you there is no cure for allergies. I recommend that your pet be allergy tested and then desensitized with allergy shots. While your pet is being desensitized use either Temeral P or prednisone for the itch and keflex to control skin infection. I also recommend an antihistamine shampoo every few days. The allergy test is a simple blood test and you can easily learn how to give your pet the allergy shots for desensitization. Good luck, vetcare
