Chow Chow > Atopica Dermatitis


Barked: Fri Jul 11, '08 12:38pm PST 
Winnie had severe allergies starting at 6mos old. I got her skin tested, and she is allergic to 20 different things including fleas, cats, wool, dust mites, and various molds. I gave her the shots for 8 months and it helped, but she still needed Temaril-p every other day to be comfortable (has steroids in it). I eventually asked to have her put on Atopica and it worked within 3 wks!! No itching unless she gets bit by a flea. One flea bite sends her itching for days. But it works!!! I recently decreased to 1 pill every other day, and that holds her. Costs me $30 month...but worth it. I still give her the shots in case they eventually work and I can end the Atopica...but so far not...after 1 yr's worth. No side effects either.
