I took Cricket to the vet the other day to do a follow up from her extraction and asked them about her allergies again. She has both food allergies and seasonal. I think we have narrowed down most of her food allergies... no chicken, no duck, no fish, grain free and gluten free... we are still not 100% sure about everything else but tends to do better on lamb limited ingredient foods. As far as tackling her allergies... we were doing benedryl for a while. It helped for a bit, but after a while it stopped really having any affect on her seasonal allergies. My vet switched her to chlorpheniramine 2x day. When that stopped helping we bumped her up to 3x day. She did well for a little bit, but now is chewing up her paws again. Some days they look ok, but the hair is thinned out... other days they are really red from her biting at them. She is super itchy all the time and constantly scratching herself. We also do aller911 baths My vet wants to switch her onto atopica which I've heard good things about, but it is super expensive. It's going to cost me $110 a month for the atopica. If I have to I'll try the atopica, but I wanted to first check to see if there is anything a bit less expensive I can try first. I'm using hexachlor wipes per my vet on her feet to keep them from becoming infected since she has a couple spots my vet is worried about becoming infected, but that isn't going to stop the itch. I've never dealt with these kinds of allergies in dogs before. I don't know what else I should do.
