I have a shih tzu that is 4 1/2 years old and she has allergies the vet has her on 1/4 a pill of medrol and derm caps every AM and in the PM we have to give her an atorax pill. For awhile this seems to do the job but now she is getting to where she is chewing on her feet and her skin is real red and irratated and she has an odor to her that is doing no justice to my house. Please give me advice on what else I can do. All of this medication is getting so expensive for me. A prompt response would be very appreciated.
There is no easy cure to allergies. Have you tried bathing her in antibacterial or antifungal shampoos. Talk to the vet, maybe he/she can recommend a shampoo that is right for your pet. vetcare
