Casey (2 1/2 years old) has recently started sneezing, and as his mom, I am trying to be ON IT now. Last October he started biting his feet and sneezing for the first time since we got him at 12 weeks. When we took him to our vet he said it was allergies. After a shot and some prescribed medicine things were much better.
I am looking for the most effective allergy medicine that you have given your baby. It was recommended by our vet to give him an over the counter allergy medicine with chlorpheniramine, which I have. However, I am reaching out to see if there is anything specific that you have used that worked.
I must be frank and hopefully do not sound rude but - I am NOT looking for pros and cons. I have found that sometimes when I look for info I see paragraphs after paragraphs but no "getting" to the point info.
YOUR positive experiences are greatly appreciated.
Our 30 pound Corgi, Ace, gets 10 mg of Zyrtec a day. It's helping, but he's starting to get bumps on his underside--the pollen is at an all time high here in VA. He also gets a bath at least once a week and wiped down after walks. Last fall we moved to this area and didn't know what he was reacting to. It got so bad he started to lose his fur. After many trips to the vet and meds for skin infections, it seems to have sorted itself out as long as we give him the Zyrtec before it gets bad. Good luck.
Never had to use but I do keep Benadryl on had for several types of allergic reactions.
Good old Benadryl....vet said generic is fine, 2 per day. Max has bad allergies from mid August till frost, my worst time too. So he stays on Benadryl for that time period. I didn't start it soon enough last year and he ended up with a bad ear infection. Won't happen again this year.
