Customer Question

My dog has licked his paws raw. I have try rinsing ooff
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: I did not finish, I was going to say I have try rinsing off his paws after I walk him, but it is temporary.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?
Customer: His ears are taking a beating and around his mouth. I have given him Temaril-P and Rilexine and it helps for a short time and then it comes back. He scratches him self raw. I don't want to continue giving him the Temaril-P, I was told it can causer your dog to get Diabetes.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Have antihistamines had any effect on his symptoms? If so, what have you used?
2) Have ou tried any other meds for allergies aside from the Temaril-P?
