Default Poor douglas.. allergies!

My poor little man is loosing most of his hair due to accidentally getting some chicken.

He's very itchy. Chews and bites at the dry areas on him. Poor baby.

I've been doing his allergy shampoo (he has seasonal allergies also) but what else might I try to make this easier for him?

I love the Eqyss Micro Tek spray. I used the pet one, not the horse version. Stopped my dog biting when he was giving himself a hotspot because of flea bite allergies.

I wonder if you could use coconut oil on the spots?

I know this is an older post, but coconut oil works great to soothe the skin and Benedryl helps to calm the reaction. You want to easy the licking, chewing and scratching as much as possible or a skin infection can set up which leads to antibiotics. Just rub him down with coconut oil and don't wash it off. Hope your pup is better by now and you've got a handle on his discomfort. Would love to know how he's doing.

His hair is coming back in now. I do give him coconut orally and he really likes it. it does seem to help.

We have a couple more months until spring and then he will be miserable again. Last year there was talk of medication for it. If it gets bad this year we're going to have to do it, last year was very hard for him. He was stripped bald, biting and itching, had to have allergy baths twice a week- he was so unhappy.

I use benedryl for any skin type allergies. Have for many years. Chlortrimiton for nasal allergies. I also make my own oatmeal shampoo to soothe itchy skin. When I had chicken pox as a child, about 150 yrs. ago, my mother gave me warm oatmeal baths for the itching. I used it on kids and dogs years before you could just go buy it in a bottle. I did try oatmeal dog shampoo once and took it back. The oatmeal part was nowhere enough to do any good. That was forever ago and I've made it myself ever since.

I use an oatmeal and sweet almond shampoo for Doug and it helps a lot. I've tried a lot of products but this is the best I've found for his skin.

I am DREADING spring.
