    Thank Ya Thank Ya! I noticed Coop looks better after baths too. I think i need to start doing weekly baths or like every 10 days. His coat get greasy anyway but I think it help with the allergies too!

    Only thing with too many baths.... it can cause the coat to lose the nature oils and then they get dry skin. Keep an eye on that and pace your baths based on how his coat/skin are handling it.

    That is why I just take them in the shower ... either me or the b/f are in the shower and the other is on the floor waiting to dry. The pups are done first, then once they are out you take your shower.

    Are you using lawn chemicals, floor chemicals, rug chemicals anything that could be on her feet? Do you walk her? Those are some things to check also. You may not think about it, but mopping your floor with pine sol...then having her walk across it could upset her tummy if she's licking her feet.

    @2BullyMama

    Thanks! I thought about that earlier today so I think we are going to try that too. Anything that could help I am willing to do.

    We haven't been using any lawn chemicals at home, but now that you mention it... I take her to work every Friday and she might get chemicals on them there. Even weeks she is doing good she always throws up when she goes to work with me. Otherwise, we are very careful with floor chemicals around her; we don't let her on the tile or anything until it's been dry for a couple of hours. Either way, I am going to start wiping her paws when she comes in and whenever she goes over floor that was recently cleaned. Great ideas, thank you!

    I wiped her paws when she came in earlier after she ate and she hasn't been licking them like usual, so maybe that will help.

    @Cooper11 @AubreysMom
    Great advice. Now that it's SPRING, folks are dumping all kinds of springtime chemicals on everything. Our little park near the house got a dose the other day. It's been 21 years since I've had to worry about buying baby wipes so I was pleased to find all kinds of fun "flavors" in the baby aisle. I used to use hypoallergenic but I'm trying out these new Huggies "Aloe and Cucumber" super wipes. The smell fantastic. (and of course, I'm watching closely in case there's something in there that doesn't agree with them)

    I always get Aubrey the hypoallergenic ones just in case.

    She did good last night with her chicken and potato dinner, and she didn't throw up this morning. We'll see how she does throughout the day.
