I am sorry to hear about Finnegan being so itchy. These shampoos look good; oatmeal based shampoos can be helpful for itching.There are some new treatments for allergies you can get from your veterinarian. One is Apoquel, which seems to help about 80% of allergic dogs with the itching and skin problems caused by allergies. The newest is an injection that can last a month or longer, called Cytopoint.If the Zyrtec is not controlling his itching, I would next try one of these. Let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer.
I hope you were able to see my response. Please let me know how Finnegan is doing, if my answer was helpful and if I can answer any other of your questions.
