I just want to say...

Postby Jazzy » Fri Jul 17, 2009 7:21 am

it's the middle of July and Veronica has...no hives!!!!!!

We've needed no prednisone, no antibiotics...we have NO HIVES!!!!!!

She's getting her allergy shot every 2 weeks (hopefully after her "season" which ends in October...we can take it down to every 3 and then every 4 weeks weeks)...but it actually seems to be working; and I was anticipating that it wouldn't.

She's getting 5mg of zyrtec in the am for the season; then we'll just go back to pre-treating a day or two before and after sher shot; and hopefully be able to phase it out completely off season).

I have noticed she has gotten itchy, licking her paws, belly, biting her flank; and when she goes outside she gets the red rash on her belly/chest - but not bad. She gets benadryl prn for the itch; but she doesn't need it every day and she usually doesn't get more then 50mg/day.

So...so far; she is doing extremely well!!!!

Nothing like this time last year!!!!!:

I am so jealous. :(

Cherry is super itchy. Not hivey but so itchy she is raw. By allergy shot what do you mean? The immunotherapy or antihistamine shots?

immunotherapy shots. I am seriously surprised they seem to be working; because no one that I've spoken with has ever had anything particularly positive or encouraging to report on the subject; and even the doctor tells you that it doesn't work for all dogs, and may only provide partial relief to others...

but so far, definitly so good!
