Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr Altman and happy to assist you both today1So sorry to hear Zeus has this issue! There are a few things you can try:- Benadryl 1 mg/ pound to help with the itch and the post nasal drip every 8-12 hours but may cause mild sedation- Steam of the shower to help with the drip and reduce congestion- Oatmeal-based dog shampoo for the itch with ten minute contact time three times weekly before rinsing- Fish oil with 750 mg EPA & DHA daily but this will take 2-4 weeks for full effect- Ensure you are feeding Zeus a high quality no by product dog foodI hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today!
