Skittlez is doing really good. Last Saturday we picked up an antihistamine from the vet and they told us that there were very few dogs who had any side effects from the medication. Well, Skitz was one of those very few. Her system just couldn’t handle it and gave her bloody diarrhea. And that was after only half of a pill. We immediately stopped the pills. Back to the vet on Tuesday after we took the kids to the airport.
The vet wanted to see a stool sample and check Skitz out. After all the checking out, we decided the next thing we would use is Temaril-P which is a combination of antihistamine and corticosteroid. This was definitely the answer for us.
We gave her 1/2 pill the first day and it started to work almost immediately. The difference in her scratching was incredible. I was concerned because it does have an antihistamine in it but she has not had any reaction to it at all. Almost all of her sores are healed and it doesn’t make her all dopey. We will continue to give her Temaril-P until about the middle of April and hopefully by then we will be out of pollen season.
We have now returned to our ordinary everyday lives.
