This is the absolute worst time of year for many allergy sufferers be they human or canine so the the Scottish Terrier and Dog News is happy to offer up a new tip from Sue, whose previous advice on itchy skin allergies was extremely helpful. She writes:
A friend suggested that I try Gold Bond powder. She read about it on the Internet. It seemed like a low risk approach given that it was endorsed on numerous websites. Guess what? It worked immediately and lasted for several hours. On the down side, it’s a bit messy. I still bathe her frequently but now I alternate between the allergy pills (Benadryl, 25 mg. generic brand) and the powder.
Finally, another distraction I use is to fill her Kong with peanut butter. It’s good for half an hour.
Hope this helps. Thanks again for a great site.
Thanks for the great contributions. It’s awful to see a dog in discomfort due to itchiness.
