    Default to the vets later this week

    Chesty will be going to the vets again this week his allergies are out of control I feel like i have tried every dog food possible and nothing is working for him. So he has to be allergic to something else other than Chicken and grains. I wanna get an allergy test done on him so I can find out what else he is allergic to, I guess i'll have to talk to the vets about that hope it's not super expensive either. I'm just so frustrated. -1453375_10201453028626652_1521925784_n-jpg -1459719_10201453028986661_2053640647_n-jpg -1390466_10201453029306669_1761884202_n-jpg sorry they might be a little blurry but he didn't want pictures of his rash taken /: these pictures do no justice they are worse than what the pictures show.

    @Katielyn, I spent the $$ on allergy test, the thing is they can take almost a year to work if given shots, I go by trial and error. Just when I think I have found the right food and it can be months, all of a sudden Vegas has allergies. I opted out of the shots, not because of the $ but because even the vet agreed it would not be a cure all. Vegas's allergies are 90% environmental here in FL. so there is not much I can do but to keep him comfortable with baths with Pharmaseb (anti fungal-yeast shampoo) and wiping him down daily. The test alone was almost $300. and to find out it is environmental which I have no control over was worse. I just do the best I can. Vegas eats grain free/gluten free food. But as of today he has very goopy eyes, and his chin is broke out bad.

    @KMARINO yeah i'm just so frustrated, I feel like i'm constantly giving him benadryl ....and i already know what my vet is going to say,she is going to say he needs to go see a specialist for his allergies and they one she wants me to go to is ridiculous, So i am thinking about switching vets in all honesty. My mom's one co-worker has a bully and she takes her bully to banfield, she says they are amazing so I might try there, But i heard they can do bloodwork and test for allergies that way so i will have to ask and find out. i'm just stressed because now i'm back to square one with finding him dog food, may i ask what you feed Vegas?

    I'd switch to Zyrtex or another allergy med, Benedryl doesn't work for many.

    What foods have you tried so far, Katie?

    Hey how old is Chesty?? If less than two, the blood test will need to be done again after two as they are still developing until then. I think you should get the test if he is suffering that much, it at least gives you a good baseline to know what to avoid, but remember the blood test is not 100 % accurate! but it helps.

    also, do you wipe his chin/face after he drinks or eats?

    @2BullyMama chesty is 15 months and yes I am always wiping his face after her eats and drinks. But I think I might get the blood test done in hopes it will tell me more!. Because I'm at my wits end with these allergies.

    I am currently having the same struggle with Jagger. He is not as severe as Chesty right now. He take OTC allergy medicine and temaril p from the vet. And he still get the spots on his face, his ears are red along with parts of his legs and feet. Jagger is only 9 months old and my vet has suggested the allergy test now and again after he is two. Jagger eats an organic - vegetarian food and that has worked best for him

    Hope all goes well

    We have Sheldon on the 4Health Grain Free the Beef and Potato formula and he LOVES it, AND I haven't had any issues with loss of hair other than the normal shedding (of course I use Salmon oil or Coconut oil on his food as well) no redness or rash on his chin or muzzle.
