Murrays allergies got really bad last year. He was biting at himself all the time and had hotspots frequently. I tried all kinds of things and finally out of desperation we did try allergy shots. The first few went OK, then he started to develop hives after he was injected, so we stopped. Here are some things I do now which seem to help: I wash his bedding in hot water only, no soap. He eats Wellness Fish and Sweet Potato, along with pumpkin, brown rice, lentils and a little fish of some kind. He only gets a bath when he really needs it; in fact I think he has only had 3 in his entire life, his coat is very soft and shiny and he does not have a hound odor. He gets yogurt every day and I think this has helped his yeast problems in general and his ears in particular. He had strange immune reactions to his yearly shots so we are doing yearly titres now and only vaccinating when the levels show that he needs it.He developed an allergy to Advantage after using it for more than a year;now he is on Frontline which he is tolerating with no problems so far. As you can see, Murray is definitely my 'Allergy Boy'. I've been helped many times by the folks on this board, and hope something I've written here is of some help to you.
