    @KMARINO I expected you to tell me that he was on 70 mg with the response he is having! This doesn't seem to be working. I have some shampoo called allermyl and a leave in conditioner called resisoothe I got from my vet. You can google it. Both are made by virbac. I used it over the summer when Lucy had a flare. I can send it to you if you are feeling like you need something to soothe him. This would work more on the body. I didn't put it on Lucy's face. Not sure if that will help. Let me know.

    Hugs to you both. Cant wait 'til you get to the new vet.

    Poor Vegas, he's just like Buddy, he will see me coming with the ear cleaning stuff and he runs and hides. Glad you found a new vet and hope it works out. Keep us posted on the new vet and we will keep out fingers crossed. Give Vegas a big hug from us.

    @LucysMum, I so appreciate the offer, but Vegas has a fantastic shampoo from our retired vet, it is anti-fungal/yeast, I massage it into him and leave it on for 10 min. then rinse real good. Tomorrow is official bath day although I have been washing him with the new stuff the new vet gave us (just face, feet) No he is only 50MG for a 63 lb. boy?? I don't know why he is acting so doped up but he is. I think if I would give him more than one he would go into a coma. It has rocked his world and he just looks doped up and walks like he is drunk. This has been a stressful weekend with him and will be a stressful week until the new vet visit Friday.

    In reading through the later posts... I think my guys shots are totally different than Vegas'.... we had a serum made based on their allergens. It was not a steroid shot. Maybe look into that with your new vet

    50 mg of Hydroxyzine three times daily?? No wonder he's drugged up and sleepy..lol
    I have bad allergies and I take that for mine. I take 75 mg in the morning and 75 mg at night. So..150 mg daily..same as Vegas. And I'm quite a bit bigger than Vegas! When I started on it, I had to start on only 25 mg 2x daily. It'll knock you out at first, takes quite awhile to get used to it so that it doesn't knock you out. They will even give patients in the ER hydroxyzine to help get them to sleep..not even kidding.

    Poor you and Vegas. He knows you love him!! Delilah gets really upset when I have to do anything with her, too. After I clean her wrinkles she just runs away and sits in the corner in her bed and gives me the stink eye.

    I only give 25mg of hydrox when needed. Maybe try only giving him that much?

    As for the shots, your vet is not lying about them. I had the same discussion you had, almost exactly the same. We were traveling and seeing different vets (this was years ago for Sarah), and they would give her the steroid shot. Once I was somewhere long enough to get several, it was brought to my attention.

    I told the vet that she is miserable without them, and that so what if she lived longer if she had a horrible itchy life!!! How was that an improvement?

    The vet then discussed with me getting the allergy testing done, and from those tests they would create a serum to inject into her, over the course of a year. We also opted to have her nose wrinkle removed so her face could breathe. It was always wet and she rubbed it so much she was scabbed all over it ALL the time.

    So maybe, just maybe, rethink this into a new thought, that potentially you could be heading down a new path to make things better for Vegas in the future. The steroid shots are masking the problem, maybe it's time to fix the source?

    On the other hand, some bullies do not react well to the serums. It will be a slight gamble.

    On that note, I would like to finish by telling you that when a bully has severe allergies their eyelids will likely roll due to swelling. So maybe Vegas has entropion only when he is under attack.

    A final option is for you to come house hunting in Arizona . We have less allergens here!!! I need a bully neighbor who is as nuts as me!!
