She's far past just diet changes. And stopping the steroid shot just makes it come back. Benadryl does not help at all.

We fought diet changes for 7 years. And it wasn't until recently (5 months ago) that we tried one more time. And this FINALLY helped. We even did RAW for awhile, and it didn't work as good as this is working. And the Temporil P, is awesome. Being that it is part steroid and part antihistimine, it really works well. I get where you are coming from, we too thought we were at a loss.......but after all these years, it's worth sharing!


And the Benedryl, it won't work if the allergies are out of control, you have to get them under control (Temp-P) first,, then maintain with Benedryl. Also, with my Catos weight, Benedryl dosage is 2 pills twice a day, and the vet told me to up that. So with 3 Benedryl every 6 hours, it keeps his allergies under control. And, I haven't noticed him being more tired than usual, or even more thirsty. The vet tells me that the way that a dogs metabolism works, they actually need a bit higher dosage then humans do, and that there are no long term effects from it.
