Thumbs up Chazer good vibes requested

OK, everyone might know that Buddy's allergies are really bad right now. We had allergy testing done months ago- he's allergic to dust mites, fleas and cockroaches.

So, we have the house sprayed once every two months, he's on a flea preventative (though I've never seen a flea on him) and... we just had the air ducts in the house cleaned, the carpets professionally cleaned and steamcleaned as well has have an air purifier in every room of the house.

Whew.

He's also still on his ED. He's been on his ED for over a month now and there has been no change for the better, whatsoever. In fact, he's much worse. So, that led us to believe that maybe it was environmental. Which then led us to the extreme cleaning of the house.

The dude who came out to clean out the air ducts suggested we rip out the pink fuzzy stuff near our big vent, so we did that. It was FULL of dust and crap. He said if we had any allergy sufferers than that would be the biggest culprit. *sigh*

So we ripped that out and the house is as clean as it gets. (We also have someone come professionally clean the house once/week).

Now we are just hoping and praying that his allergies get better. He is in so much discomfort.. three of his four paws are chewed and red and swollen. His belly is red and his skin is so itchy over so much of his body.

If you can pull your good vibes together and send them Buddy's way, I'm sure he would be very happy. He deserves a break from all that ails him.

Thank you!

Actually, part of his ED is that he is on no supplements. He can have buckwheat and pheasant and that is it. Nothing else. We're giving the ED a few more weeks and then we'll call it quits. Hopefully by then, whatever is going to cure him will. I'm at the end of my rope, here... I don't know how else to help him.

pooor Buddy!! I had a dog who was allergic to dust mites--my son is also allergic, and has asthma. As a result, we pulled up every carpet in the house--that made a big impact. I don't know if you own or rent--but carpets harbor alot of stuff in them!!
Sending nice healing vibes to Buddy....

Poor Buddy, he's had a rough time of it.

Does he seem to get any relief from going to the beach and getting in the salt water?
