Hi I jsut wanted to update you all on Baileys "allergies" - I did switch her food to a nutro lamb and rice...... she has not broken out in hives any more, but still scratches and bites like crazy.( her sides are getting really sparse) I give her benadryl 2x a day and that helps, but not totally. I am thinking it might be an allergy to fleas - I have seen a couple, but youd think she was completely infested the way she acts! I use the zodiac once a mo (oil on the neck and tail) treatment and I recently got "hotspot, itch relief shampoo" ..... is there something else I should be trying, or should we go back and see if the vet has something better?
Thanks for everyones help!
