41/2 year old Mini Schnauzer Allergy ( Itching) paw -tail area
Pepper is 4 1/2 yr old Male
My problem is, he has allergies that cause him to lick his paw and tail area everyday. Last year when it started my vet suggested steroid shots and prednisone( Did not work). I was on line and found a forum with the same issue i had with Pepper. They said i should try Benadryl 25mg. It helped some but not a cure. Two weeks ago I took Pepper to my vet for grooming. I told the Vet Pepper is still itching and its worst. The Vet said there is a new product Apoqueal that is a wonder drug and will stop the itching in four hours after the first pill. So naturally i purchased it to help my pet.
Well first, the Apoqueal is very expensive, for a two week supply 28 Pill was a $100.00 Yes( ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS). Sadly they did nothing for Pepper , he sill has the problem . I called my vet and told him and all he could say is some dogs it just does not work. So now I'm back giving him the Benadryl .
Does any one else have this problem? Please help !!!
