Chihuahua with allergies
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?
