Forrest (Gump) will be 9 in October and has been experiencing some sort of allergy every year at this time for the past four years. He starts by chewing his feet and ends up scratching a lot all over. The vet is familiar with Gump to the point that a phone call is all that is needed and medication (steriods) are waiting at the office. I also bathe him with special shampoo. Last year he required a shot...hopefully just the medication will work this year. Has anyone else experienced this? I feel so bad for him, he looks so uncomfortable when it first begins.
