    Is he scratching his face or any other areas? I feel ya on the allergies, we are dealing with those big time right now! Our vet said you can put a little hydrocortisone cream on itchy spots too (staying clear of the eyes of course).

    My Mr. Wilson is getting hit hard with allergies this year. Even my Frenchton Louie has very bad itchy, teary eyes this season and he never had it much before. So I'm doing lots of wipe downs and cleaning eyes a lot before they do more damage by their scratching or rubbing on the carpet. I feel for you and your fur baby.

    maybe check to see what he is putting his face in outside also. sarah was having an awful problem with hives and broken out belly and her face breaking out everytime it rained. im like geez she cant get like this with every rain. so i watched her outside. she was going pp and sticking her face in all the leaves that had gathered around the deck of the house. of course she is allergic to several molds per her test so i removed the leaves and she is all but cured of her problem. oh she gets the occasional hive here and there but not like before and her belly doesnt break out nor her face. so maybe a check when of the outside to for allergens. just a thought oh and i dont know what anti histamine the vet put him on but ive found that for sarah zyrtec works better than benadryl on these types of allergies. just throwing that out there for whoever maybe reading this.

    I agree with the above and we give duke zrtec also.... We wipe duke with a soft towel after he eats and drinks keeping dry will help.... Our bullies sure keep us busy

    Poor baby.. this is just a horrible year for allergies. Not getting any better. Watching Dublin constantly. Her bout of hives were sooo bad and she is always on the "verge" On Benydrly but going to ask my vet about Zyrtec... Hope they clear up soon and yes, of course they have to stick their faces into the grass and anything that grows :-)

    I definitely think I am going to have to get Hank allergy tested. The vet gave him an antihistamine and I am constantly drying him off and wiping his feet every time he comes in from outside.
