So my gsd/rottie mix has always groomed/scratched a lot and had minor allergies...a few weeks ago though she made the base of her tail bleed...we took her to the vet and the vet had us try temaril-p (works) and an oatmeal shampoo (didn't work)
as soon as the temaril-p ran out she started itching again..so the vet had us start another round today. (3 tablets /12hrs then 3 tablets/daily then 3 tablets every other day)
My question is...what can I expect next? Is there another drug she can be on permanently or more long term?
We don't think its a food allergy because we have seen her itch across multiple brands of food and flavors (currently on orijen 6 fish/regional red)
So that leaves environmental ...but the thing is the allergies seem to be year around?
Would we benefit from doing an allergy test panel? I hear they can be expensive and inaccurate?
