This post is pretty old, so I am not sure if anyone will read this. I have an allergic dog and it is NOT food allergies. If you can solve your dog’s allergies by diet then you are lucky. I have struggled with my dog allergies for years and I can offer some helpful advice. Also, I just had to put my dog back on steroids after several years and I can say the side effect are bad (the reason I came here). Anyway, I found a pretty good solution to manage my dogs allergies. You need to give the dog a bath every week using Ketochlor shampoo followed by a hydrocortisol shampoo. I put a video up on YouTube about it that nobody watches. Search for “Solution for itchy dog Nutfork”. I really hope this can help you! Dog allergies are really frustrating!
* Be careful when treating cancer, this drug can cause MDR (Multidrug Resistance) which reduces the effectiveness of chemotherapy.
When treating coughing and itching conditions you should ask the vet about Temaril-P , a medicine which contains both prednisolone and trimeprazine. This combination can lower the required amount of corticosteroid.
Important: Stopping treatment suddenly after long periods of use could cause Addison’s disease or serious heart problems. For this reason you should always taper the dosage off gradually.
