Chihuahua with allergies

by Judy
(Pfafftown, NC)

My 14 year old Chihuahua has allergies. She's had them for several years. A test done several years ago proved allergies to various grasses and weeds, some allergy to rice and turkey, etc. No 'one' allergen target, though. She takes very low doses of steroids... unfortunately... Even THAT doesn't seem to help much anymore. She also has a thyroid problem and is taking medication for that, too. She chews her feet constantly...sometimes until they are bloody. I wipe her feet when she comes in from outside. I bathe her with oatmeal shampoo. Her allergies seem to be a little worse in the spring and fall, of course, but they're present all year round. She's my little girl, and sometimes I can't sleep worrying about her. Is there ANYTHING new on the horizon concerning canine allergies..that I can afford?

Allergies, poor bubba

Focusing a specific diet should help a great deal. My dog suffered from allergies for a brief time but the dog gave her a shot (steroids) and it has been significantly better. Consider consulting several different vets to get some new ideas. Good luck, I hope the problems gets better soon. Cheers!

Thanks so much for your input. I'll certainly mention cyclosporine to the vet. I feed Angel nothing but Evanger's dog food (chicken dinner and vegetarian). No filler, no grains. Treats consists of raw baby carrots and raw (washed) green beans. It's weird...Angel doesn't have fleas; she never has. I don't know why. I can't explain it. As a result of no fleas, I don't have to use any flea control on her. A friend mentioned a new product...oatmeal dog wipes (Walmart). I picked some up last night...we'll see.

Focus on flea control such as vectra or advantage multi every 30 days.. Feed a hypoallergenic diet such as royal canin, zero people food and no treats. Consider an oral medication called cyclosporine which we are having quite a bit of success with in the treatment of allergic dermatitis in dogs. contact your local veterinarian to explore these options... :))

I am so thankful I found your website!

"I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd/Hound with 2 bulging disks, arthritis in his hips and cataracts that are starting to form. He has done a 180 since the first week of being on your products. He is playful and wagging his tail much more often than he has been over the past couple of years. I am so thankful that I found your website and I tell everyone that I know with pets here in NYC about your products. My dog hasn't limped since he started on the FlexaSure Dog Arthritis Cell Cleanse and Joint Hydration Formula and the Primalix Arthridia and Cataractin Formulas. I cannot thank you enough for making these products available. It has eased my best friends pain so he can participate in daily activities and given me more time with him. Thank you so much!"

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due. With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow. I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!). My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

Vet Ophthlamologist confirmed Sonny blind. Thanks to Primalix Cataractin he can now see! Cheryl and Sonny from Wisconsin

"Sonny our 13 year old miniature poodle would brush along objects to find his way. March 2014 a Vet. Ophthalmologist confirmed completely formed cataracts. Risky surgery was not an option. March 28, 2014 Sonny started Cataractin and DailySure. May 2014 Sonny was seeing good enough to walk around on his own. August 2014 Sonny site is really good and he is running around enjoying his freedom and us. We are in AWE and so grateful for you helping others live a better life!"

Delighted it worked so fast
Carol and Max from Illinois

Carol C testimonial "I have to tell you how happy I am to have gotten the Cataractin. I received it in the mail a couple days after ordering it. I was very excited to try this on my girl Max. She is a 14 year old beagle. She is in great shape but has had trouble seeing. Her brown eyes were foggy blue with a whitish blue spot in both eyes. She couldn't see to jump up to sit with me. After just two days of taking Primalix Cataractin her eyes are looking way better.

"I was wanting this to work but am so delighted that it worked so fast. She is not completely better but she is well on her way. The best part is she can see to jump up in my chair now. My only regret is that I wish I would have purchased this 6 months ago when I first saw it on the web.
Thank you so much,"
