Re: Allergies...help me without steroids

Bromelian given away from meals is a natural anti-inflammatory,

Quercetin, is a natural anti-histamine,

Vitamin C benefits as an immune booster and therefore your dog's system is more resistant to environmental allergies. If giving Vitamin C make sure it is Sodium Acsorbate and not Asorbic acid.

Fish Oil works against allergies but has to be supplimented with Vitamin E otherwise your dog can develop a Vit E deficiency which will cause itchy dry skin.

Cider Vinegar helps internal and topical

Adding Olive Oil helps

Gelatin helps the body to use protien better and therefore improves the skin, and the condition of the blood allowing the dogs to fight infection and allergens better.

Good Luck
