Allergies to Grass or Pollen

My vet has Boss on Clemastine for his allergies. I thought he had Poison Ivy all over his under belly, it wasn't just an allergery that got infected. They gave him a steriod shot and Keflex 500 mg, Vet also told me he'll have to be on the Clemastine for ever.......
The Shot helped within 24 hours. Boss loves to be outside but I have to watch just how long he stays out in the grass, I have laid some rugs out there and now he is getting use to laying on them. Just wondering if anyone has heard about Clemastine pills?????

Re: Allergies to Grass or Pollen

Clemastine, is an antihistamine.

See this link: http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Con...=1&SourceID=52

I am not sure where you live, but my Lakota has seasonal allergies, we try to control the itching and discomfort, this year was really bad. Right now I am treating him for his yearly skin infection from the allergies. But there is hope for me, it is called late fall to mid spring. As soon as the frost has killed all the vegetation he stops itching, so I am hoping to get the infection knocked out about the same time the filling frost come.

I don't treat his allergies year round, but it would depend on where you live.

Re: Allergies to Grass or Pollen

Allergies are AWFUL this year - pet and human! We tried benadryl (50 mg 3x/day) but that didn't work. Now Gracie seems to be controlled on hydroxyzine 50 mg 3x/day. I also make sure to wipe her paws and belly really well after coming in from outside (I use baby wipes, allergy free, perfume free, fragrance free, for sensitive skin). Sometimes she gets what looks like acne around her tail and we use a Gentamycin spray on those spots.

I think putting the rugs down is a good idea. Just bring them in at night. I find the morning dew is what really bothers Gracie.

Kinda OT, but I LOVE that spray. I always have a bottle at my house!

I also use a home-made spray with pure aloe juice and tea tree oil which helps a bit.

To the OP, have you had your dog allergy tested (for both food and environmental allergies)? That may help you in the long run...
