Hi was poster on original thread-it appears from your list (and being a near neighbor)that any lawn grass-maple trees(so common in new england AND worst pyrethum common repellant are a problem.I do not know what if any advice I could give you.I have a feeling that bnot only my heartdog but myself are suffering from environmental symptoms that have NO treatment other than a geographical change

ttalldog, I wanted to move to Florida until I read about the killer frog/toad.

My DH suggested a really big bubble - like "Boy in a Bubble".

Dogs as well as people are affected by the environment.Both jake and I have been much better last week.Would be interesting to know geographicl/environmental problems for dogs but do not know if any studies have been done.As far as grass/lawn allergies for Lady Jane most allergies are to pollen not grass itself-try keeping your lawn close cut and not blooming/seeding pollen producing.The only other advice I would have is routinely test your girl for Lyme disease BIG problem in this area

WOW - that's quite a list. What were her numbers? How far over the 150 target?

Ideas? I like the holistic ideas everyone gave me, especially if LJ is 12 1/2. Good luck. Let me know what you try and what works!!

Okay, at least it wasn't in the thousands. Allergic yes but manageable.
