Ruckus is allergic to grass. Or at least that is what the vet said that it sounds like. She didnt run any test though. Either way.... he is having a flare up. he has been eating at his underarms and inner legs. Also he has scratched scabs on his ear! He has been spending loads of time outside for the past month, so its no wonder why he is broke out. We just got a doggy door and he wants to stay outside most of the time. I gave him a benadryl just now. Usually that works pretty well, and if not we go to the vet for steroids. I was just wondering.... Does anyone else have a dog that is allergic to grass? and what do you do to keep allergies at bay. When we first moved here basically the what is now the dog yard was mostly dirt. So we planted clover rather than grass seed. but of course grass eventually found its way into the yard. now the yard is a third mud, an the rest a 50 50 clover grass mix.
