My pit have very bad allergies,
he is allergic to:grass, fleas, flies, masquitoos (sp)peckernats, hay, any kind of ivy, tick, any kind of bug.
so we spend all summer treating it, we used to go to the vet and get pills, but the only ones that worker were steriods, as if any large dog need steriods. plus it got to be very costly. so, this is what I do every day, I useskin so soft (avon) the repelent. and I have three different kinds of shampoo, that he get a bath with once a week, if the allergins are real bad, I bathe as needed, A medicated shampoo, that smells like tar. AOatmeal bath for the itching, and A flea and tick shampoo, but not in that order, medicated-flea and tick-and finally the Oatmeal.
you must make sure you leave the shampoo's for as long a s the direction say too. the oatmeal shampoo that i have needs to be left on the dog for 8 mins. but it works so well. Clyde is so much happeir than he was a few years ago.
It just takes alot mor work on my part. instead of giving him some pill, that didn't work.
