Sabian has some kind of a grass allergy or at least something that grows in the summer. Every year he begins itching and we try a variety of things to help. After the first freeze he is OK. In the past we have used Benedryl (1mg/pound) and he has been on steroids multiple times. The benedryl really doesn't do much. The steroids will help for a while but they only last a couple of weeks after his last dose. The steroids also make him not feel well. He can be grumpy and tired on them. This year the vet is trying something new. He thinks he may be allergic to fleas. Now mind you I treat him all year round but the vet found one immature flea on him and thinks maybe he is being bit by fleas but they just don't stay on him. So I am giving weekly baths in some special shampoo that I leave on him for 10 minutes. I am now treating for fleas every 3 weeks and I treated my house (I have never seen a flea on him). It really isn't working. I don't think it is a food allergy as it disappears after a freeze. He can be so miserable. Any ideas before I spend big bucks on an allergist?
