    Re: Worsening allergies?

    Hi there,
    Just popping in to give an update. Daphne is doing LOADS better. I cannot believe it. Even after just 24 hours, she is barely itching at all and I'd say 90% of the painful red areas are GONE. She was given Temaril-P on a schedule that tapers off (starting with 2 tabs by mouth twice a day for 3 days) and she also was given Cephalexin 250 mg for 10 days (2 a day). Like I said, she is doing AMAZING. I feel horrible; she must have been so uncomfortable. I washed everything in the house and the carpet cleaning company is coming today to clean upstairs carpets (wood downstairs). I gave her a Bravecto chew earlier this week and that is supposed to last for 3 months. I wish I had taken before/after pics of her behind area and how irritated and inflamed it looked. Her tail pocket infection is also virtually gone. I bathed her in a 4% Chlorhexidine shampoo the day after the vet visit. Our house backs to woods although I never let them go in it - Copperheads, deer to chase, and we hear coyotes at night sometimes. We are blowing massive amounts of leaves off the property every other day until they are all off the trees. I learned a hard lesson this week and unfortunately Daphne was paying for it, but I've got her sorted now, and my bigger boy is going to the vet on Friday for his check up and meds, so hopefully we will be good from here on out!

    That is excellent news!!! Glad to hear she is on the mend and you seem to have everything under control. Crazy it was just one flea! But I do know dogs can also be allergic to them!

    Re: Worsening allergies?

    Yeah, one single flea! Never saw another one on her or anywhere in the house and my Boxer did not have any on him. Fleas, cotton, grasses, and weeds are her #1 highest rated environmental allergens according to the "allergy test" I had done. I Googled pics of flea bites after she was at the vet and it is exactly what she looked like. I have a few days left of antibiotic meds and her Temaril-P is now at every other day status and she is licking and doing a tiny bit of itching again so I think Cytopoint is for sure in her future.
