    Default Allergy season in the Northeast. How are your bullies doing?

    I've noticed many threads about rashes, hives, and losing hair over the last month. Am wondering if many of the posters are in the Northeast?
    It's terrible allergy season here and I'm thinking that it's not so much the food as the pollen right now.

    My pup got hives on his hind legs last weekend after playing in the grass in Pennsylvania. Called my vet, she said it was allergies and called in a script for Temaril-P.
    I haven't used it yet because it's a steroid and I'm not comfortable giving it to a dog this young. Have been treating it with a Benadryl ointment and baths. It's a little better.

    So for all you in the Northeast, how are your bullies doing right now?

    I'm in the Southeast but if it gets as bad up in NY as it's been down here be prepared for a long tough season. Keep some benadryl pills on hand for Blue just in case. Remember the dose is 1 mg per pound or 1 25 mg pill per 25 pounds. Keep telling yourself that all those blossoms are pretty.

    Yup, I'm in upstate NY and the pollen is becoming horrendous as we speak and I've used temaril p and keep it in hand also but use it ONLY when it gets to the point where Santino is really suffering. Right now the antihistamine hydroxizine twice a day is working ..... so far..... so I can totally relate

    I'm in Maine and the pollen is awful, Otis had pollen listed as an allergy on his testing but I haven't seen any real effects at the moment (knock on wood) just around his nose wrinkels they look a little sore, so we are cleaning and using desitin if needed.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    I agree I am in michigan and this goofy weather is playing havoc with 2 of my bullies that are prone to allergies. I think I need to take stock in benadryl lol.

    We are in PA and George takes 10mg of Cetieizine (generic Zyrtec) everyday. His allergies have bothered him since he was a little guy; the Zyrtec really helps! I'm on my smart phone and I can't go back to fix the spelling but it is cetirizine.

    Raven's eyes and ears have been pretty itchy. I gave her a bath with Oatmeal shampoo and I have also been putting some pet hydrocortisone lotion on the spots. I know I can use the human stuff but I was ordering a ton of junk for her and decided to give this one a try. It seems to help when I put it on her. She has been so itchy that she scraped herself under her eye as well as on the side of her face and had a little scab. I have no idea which one of us is suffering the worst right now.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    Here in Boston both Gio and Princess (and ME!!) have been suffering with allergies since the end of March! It's been a crazy spring! Lots of sneezing when they are outside and both of their wrinkles are a light red and they never have tear stains.

    I don't have allergies, so this is all new to me.
    Crazy how it affects our bullies. I feel so terrible for them..
    @Kristin I haven't thought to try Zyrtec but I may since Benadryl isn't helping much.

    Bnaks is getting her butt kicked... pink face, wet folds and red eyes. Especially after a lawn is mowed..... benedryl twice a day and ACV wipes of the paws to keep the yeast away

    Finally we are getting a much needed shower here which always helps the pollen allergies and brings relief for a little while.
