Default Little Lulu's allergy

Poor little baby...come to find out that she has some sort of allergy that affects her eyes and side of face. All test were negative for mites, fungus, etc.... Dr. put her on ointment and a steroid shot and she is on benedryl. She also said that puppies sometimes outgrow certain allergies.
I pray that this helps...she has been so itchy that it made her whimper when she would scratch posted some pics of her facial area. Anybody that has had similar problem w/ their dog, let me know...
Other than that she is just a bundle of energy and seems to be doing great in everything else.

Poor girl! What do you feed her? Perhaps a diet change could help?

Poor girly!
Certainly could be a food allergy. If you don't already you could try a grain free food. After that you'd have to start eliminating certain meats and other products.

If it isn't a food allergy I hope its something easily manageable!
I hope she at least gets some relief soon. That looks painful.

She is on Wellness Puppy dry and canned which I have heard is supposed to be good?? The doctor said that if it were food allergy sometimes they have tummy trouble which she does not, but you just don't know. She has been on that food for about 2 months. When we adopted her 2 weeks ago her she had some noted hair loss around eyes already and seemed to squint her eyes. The vet even did a test to check for eye injuries, scratches, etc....
We will keep working on a solution to find out what it could be...She has already stopped her intense scratching since she got her meds. and shot this afternoon.
