SayD is 30 pounds. I originally fed her Science Diet and cooked egg. I am now experimenting with hypoallergenic dry and limited ingredient dry foods; including duck/potato and buffalo mixes. I will sometimes add a cooked egg and/or diced turkey. Is there an analgesic for dogs to alleviate symptoms?
Thank you for giving me the correct term and medications to help my dog! Will using Benadryl or Chlorpheniramine cause side effects such as drowsiness, dry mouth, or anything else we should watch for? Are these ok for long-term use? I forgot to mention that I give her probiotic (Proviable-DC) once daily. I am trying to be proactive and get as informed as possible.
Thank you again for your answer, Doctor -- one more question: Will the use of antihistamines derail food trials to determine her allergies? I am desperate to give her some relief, so I'd like to start the antihistamines asap.
