If you do the antibiotics don't forget an acidophilus supplement for his digestive tract. Diahhrea isn't much fun.
rods been on antibiotics a lot. i havent had problems with his poo.
last spring and summer i was giving him 2 allergy pills and 2 antibiotic pills a day. so im pretty in tune with how he reacts to them.
Have you tried just plain old benedryl for him? The generic stuff is $5 for 200. Connor gets 6 a day, three with each meal. If you don't want to bother with the pills, you can dissolve them in water and then put the water on his food. Give it a few minutes to soak in and you're good to go.
rods great with taking pills, i dont have a problem with him not taking them. i did buy benedryl, but havent started giving it to him regularly yet. needless to say im going to start.
It wouldn't hurt to try for a few days, and anything is better than a buck a pill!!!
the buck a pill is for the antibiotics the vet was prescribing. his outbreaks kept getting worse so he gave me the highpowered stuff. aint cheap. the outbreaks stopped seasonally so i stop the meds for a while, which was great for rod and for my pockets. but they're back again. wellness fish and SP has definitely helped so far with his skin problems. at least for now. i'll probably wake up tomorrow with rod in hives.
If you don't know what Rod's allergic too, might be worthwhile having him tested, then you could try and avoid/eliminate it.
yeah, i know ear infections are a sign of food allergies. but rod only gets them seasonally. all he eats is dog food and the occasional raw beef bone. his allergies only come around for spring and summer.
