Thank you for requesting me. I am sorry to hear about Murphy's problems.
Yes, you can give him Benadryl: 12.5 mg, 2 to 3 times daily. Or, you can try Claritin, 2.5 mg once daily.
Other things that may help (every allergy case is different, and what works for one may not help the next): quercetin, anti oxidants, fish oil. Bathing in oatmeal shampoo. Prescription anti yeast shampoo containing ketoconazole.
There is a new prescription allergy medication called Apoquel that is helping many itchy dogs.
Let me know what else I can help with or answer. Rebecca
Can I help with anything else?
