|We have a DAL that has allergies. I have tried so many foods it isn't funny. I do give her fish oil caps, but they alone have not helped. I didn't want her on prednisone, as it finally does damage to the kidney. The one and only thing that is helping her now is ATOPICA !
It is very expensive. You start out on one a day. after two weeks, one every other day. After the initial 4 weeks, we are down to trying two a week. So far, so good. But Allergy Season hasn't kicked in yet, so I can't say if she'll stay on this amount. She hardly ever scratches and is no longer pink and miserable. As I said , it is very expensive, she is on the 100mg. tablets...15 to a box...about $100.00. Being, that she is down to two a week, it's not nearly as expensive. We also figure it beats the vet bills constantly trying to find a solution. They do blood work every so often to see how the liver is doing. Good Luck ! Any questions, feel free to pmail me!
