So my last blog post was all about my corgi Dax and how awfully itchy he had been the last few months, from what i expect to be airnorne allergies. He would itch to the point of injuring himself and even had to be put on antibiotics at one point. He has been on and off prednisone for the last year-and-a-half, and has been on more high quality foods than I can count. Well, as a last resort, I decided to switch him over to dehydrated raw food, that was specifically for "allergy dogs". He loved it for a while, but eventually grew tired of the food, especially the green beans I would mix in (he's also on a diet, on top of everything else!), so I decided to try another raw food, Primal. He loves it!!! I can't wait to see the results of him being on this food (look it up, primalpetfoods.com). Anywho, along with him being on his special diet, I also decided to try an herbal supplement. It's called Health Concerns Skin Balance, and it has a whole bunch of Chinese herbs that are supposed to remove heat, dampness, and toxins from the blood and skin. I just sort of happened across an article about it, and figured I really had nothing to lose with trying it. Dax has been taking the herbs (which are in pill form) twice a day for the last two weeks, and let me tell you....i'm impressed. At first I was a bit skeptical, and it took a good two weeks for the herbs to build in his system, but the results have been phenominal! He hardly itches at all anymore!!!! It used to be that if I even barely touched him on his sides and hips, he would burst into an itching frenzy! But now, it's like he's a whole new dog!! I can't wait to see what his coat and skin will look like in another two weeks, now that I've got him on the Primal raw food too! Anywho, if anyone out there has a corgi with the same problem, I highly recommend both the raw dehydrated (which was from the company Addiction pet foods, and it was the Brushtail raw dehydrated formula) and the Primal raw foods. But I implore you to please give the Health Concerns Skin Balance a try, for any kind of itchiness your dog might have (your cat too!)

Glad you found something that seems to be working...I bet Dax is too!
