Hi everyone! Happy summer!! I hope your Corgis are able to enjoy this gorgeous weather. I know Dally loves it--lots of time for agility training, walks, and playing tennie ball! Unfortunately, I think this being outside so much is also hurting her--with grass allergies. Poor thing! She's up-to-date on her flea medicine, but she's still constantly itchy!
For a while just giving her a Benedryl calmed her for a couple of weeks, but the itching has come back again with avengence. I've tried washing her in an oatmeal bath and continuing with the Benedryl (now taking it twice a day). There are no signs of fleas or ticks anywhere on her. She's starting to develop a few red spots on the inside of one hind leg, which I'm now spraying a hydrocortizone spray three times a day (started this on Sunday after buying the spray my sister uses on her Bloodhound that has grass allergies). Last night she kept me up all night scratching on the bed, so tonight I gave her an oatmeal bath (I know with Corgis you don't want to bathe too frequently due to their thick coats, it could dry them out). I'm afraid I may have to take her to a vet for a steroid shot.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips or advice??
