My bully has terrible allergies. We have her on atopica which helps a lot. I'm trying to get her down to every other day, but it doesn't seem to be working. When I came home yesterday she scratched herself raw on her belly both sides. Its very red and moist. She didn't want to walk or lay down because she was sore. I was able to wipe her down with cold water and apply neosporin on the area. After that I covered the area with corn startch to dry it up and placed a t-shirt over top. I gave her the atopica right away. Is there anything else I can give or do to stop the pain?
We feed her blue bufflo grain free salmon. I was thinking about switching her to homemade food. I just read about a guy who had a lab who had very bad allergies he switched the dogs food to brown rice, vegtables (no corn), and can fish. He also wipped the dog down with 1/2 water 1/2 cider vinager mix on her paws, ears, etc.. He never had to give the dog another allergy needle again. What do you think? Is this something I should try?
Thanks for your help.
