Customer Question
as if she goes through...
I have a 3 year old lab mix with Addison's disease. It seems as if she goes through times with a very itchy belly. She does not seem to have any bumps or a rash. It is a little red. We have been giving her Cetirizine which seems to help some but usually give her one a day when she is itching. She has also been prescribed a cefpodoxime for bumps on her chin. She snores while sleeping sometimes. We have assumed that these symptoms are due to allergies but I am wondering if this could be related to the Addison's. Just looking for any insight you could give me if there is anything else we should be doing or looking into. Thank you for your time. Sara

Hello,
I am sorry to hear about Jazzy's problems. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
How are you treating her Addison's?
Addison's disease does not usually cause itching and skin problems. Snoring is probably not related either. Allergies would be more likely.
In addition to antihistamines and antibiotics, you can try supplements. The following list are all things that help some dogs, but not all dogs: quercetin, probiotics, nettles, fish oil, evening primrose oil, and anti oxidants.
Let me know what else I can help with or answer.
