We need help and advice. This dog is very sick and continues to get worse every year. He has allergies and has had them since he turned one year old. I have tried the following with some success, but only on a temporary basis. He seems to get a lot of yeast and secondary infections now. HELP! We have had allergy tests and he is allergic to everything. He takes allergy shots- has for 2 years- and we are very consistent. In the past, we did give him steriods shots- but we no longer to this. Sometimes you get desperate, so a gentler oral steriod is given- to keep him comfortable only when we can't get the inflammation down through other means. We use fish oil and go to a natural vet ( a variety of supplements came with this.) He is given daily "Relief "baths, AC vinegar baths, perioxide, Antihistamines, and he is also on a grain free diet. I know there are things I am forgetting. Please help. I am going to try coconut oil today. Has anyone else dealt with this? We love him dearly and it is so hard to see him so miserable day in and out.
