Okay so without going into detail as I have posted threads on this before. My dogs hayfever/grass/pollen allergy is in full force right now. We have spent a night up with him scratching/biting/licking himself red. Seems worse at night. I think this may have hugely been down to the fact that I changed my bed yesterday (he kips with me) and my fresh bed covers had been airing outside on the line (I.e pollen sticking to covers tranferred to doggies skin in the night) Anyway instead of going to the Vets and his usual various courses of Steriods. I have been told that Piriton can work quite well? Has anyone used this and found it to be effective? I had Hayleve (another form of allergy tablet in the house but research on the net suggests this is more effective on cats) So I have bought some Piriton and wondering whether to give it a go everything I have looked at some far suggests yes but thought I would see what views here say first. Also someone with a dog with the same condition uses 'Cuticura' slightly medicated talc and swears by this??? I also wondered if this is something anyone had heard of? It isn't something I would put on and risk making the condition any worse. By the way I will of course take doggie to the Vets if this gets any worse for his steriods as that seemed to work last time. Thanks!
