    Tricky tricky! I have not thought about that!!!

    Vegas is a mess right now with his allergies, we have had monsoons here daily, then it gets bright and sunny and high 90's plus humidity. His eyes were almost completely swelled shut, with an ulcer on his left eye. I took him to the vet yesterday. He got a shot of steroid, and antibiotic, antibiotic eye drops and some pain pills. What a difference 24 hours makes his eyes are still swollen, but at least I can see his eyeballs now.

    Do you have an updated picture of Vegas? I must have missed the original post.

I already have to give him his Pheno 2 times a day which involves me shoving it in his throat (he is too smart and will eat whatever I wrap the pills in and spit the pills out) I hate to have to do it more often then I need too, I am worried that cramming pills in his mouth 4 times a day is going to make him hate taking his Pheno which he has to have. Allergy season here can last months last year they got so bad that he was put on predisone to help but I want to avoid that since his Pheno makes him so tired anyways. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I saw on another thread about giving dogs Zyrtec... not sure if that would work w/Loki's other meds, but I thought I would at least let you know!!! Good Luck

    I have used vanilla ice cream for 9 yrs for meds...... never has failed,
