    Default inhaled allergies

    I took John to the Bulldog vet specialist here in Detroit just to have him checked out. There were a couple of spots on his skin that he took a scraping of and said they were from inhaled allergies. So, he gave me a medicated shampoo and told be to bathe him once a week. He also gave me some steroid spray because he was licking his paws quite a bit. I'm supposed to wear rubber gloves when I spray it on his feet but it's ok for him? I don't get that... anyone have any experience with this?

    Here's some pics from his bath.

    Hmm… I've never heard of that. I use a steroid nasal spray for myself, I have horrible allergies.

    My girl, Banks, is allergic to everything green and all my vet gave me was to give her Benedryl, as needed and wipe her off with a cool wash cloth when she comes in from being outside. I am not sure what the spray is and if I needed gloves to administer I'd be nervous too. Can you give us the name to see if anyone has exxperience with it?

    This is the stuff.-10681_420-jpg

    What is Genesis Topical Spray?
    Genesis Topical Spray is used to control itching associated with allergy dermatitis. Genesis Topical Spray requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
    For: Dogs (8 lbs and over and at least 1 year old)
    Benefits:
    Effectively minimizes your dog’s itching
    No longer need to subject your dog to systemic steroid treatments
    First topical spray that's as effective for flea allergy dermatitis as prednisone
    Comes with an easy-to-use spray applicator
    Dye and fragrance free
    Minimal side effects
    How it works:
    Genesis Topical Spray is a topical corticosteroid. The anti-inflammatory action of corticosteroids when applied to the affected areas relieves itching and inflammation associated with allergy dermatitis.
    Cautions:
    Avoid contact with eyes. Do not use any other medications during Genesis Topical Spray treatment without consulting your veterinarian first. Genesis Topical Spray should not be used on pregnant or nursing dogs.

    More Information:
    Brand Name
    Genesis Topical Spray (Virbac)
    Generic Name
    Triamcinolone Acetonide (try-am-sin’-alone)
    What is the most important information I should know about Genesis Topical Spray: Genesis Topical Spray is a prescription medication FDA-approved for use on dogs weighing at least 8 lbs and at least 1 year old. Do not get Genesis Topical Spray in the pet's eyes. Use only in a well-ventilated area and wear gloves when applying the medication.
    What is Genesis Topical Spray: Genesis Topical Spray is a topical corticosteroid used for the control of itching associated with allergy dermatitis. Genesis Topical Spray may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.
    What should I discuss with my veterinarian before applying Genesis Topical Spray on my pet: Do not apply Genesis Topical Spray to your pet if the pet has a serious bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Genesis Topical Spray may weaken the pet's immune response and its ability to fight infections. Tell your veterinarian if the pet is pregnant or lactating.
    How should this medication be used: Apply this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Apply sufficient pump sprays to uniformly and thoroughly wet the affected areas while avoiding run-off of excess product. Genesis Topical Spray should be applied twice a day for 7 days, once a day for the next 7 days, then every other day for an additional 14 days for a maximum of 28 days of therapy. Store Genesis Topical Spray at room temperature. Keep this medication away from children and pets.
    What happens if I miss applying a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as remembered. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, give the regularly scheduled dose. Do not apply a double dose.
    What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. An overdose is more likely to occur due to the medication being used over a long period of time beyond the recommended 28 days. Symptoms of overdose may include weight gain, panting, increased thirst, hunger and urination, vomiting, diarrhea, and Cushing's syndrome.
    What should I avoid while applying Genesis Topical Spray on my pet: Wear gloves when applying Genesis Topical Spray. Use only in a well-ventilated area. Do not get spray into pet's eyes. This medication should not be used beyond 28 days.
    What are the possible side effects of Genesis Topical Spray: If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop applying Genesis Topical Spray and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives); increased blood pressure or sudden weight gain. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue applying Genesis Topical Spray and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences increased urination and hunger; discomfort; sneezing; watery eyes. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.
    What other drugs will affect Genesis Topical Spray: Do not apply any other over-the-counter or prescription medications, including herbal products, during treatment with Genesis Topical Spray without first talking to your veterinarian.
    Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Genesis Topical Spray written for health professionals that you may read.

    Never used it, but looks to be a steroid, which I personally would not use. I do not like the idea of masking the issue, steroids suppress what is the cause, it does not solve the problem. It does give relief, but the issue will continue to appear over again. Environmental allergies are so tough cause you can not cure or stop them, just have to fins the best way for some relief.....

    Poor guy - how many times are you supposed to put the spray on? Also does he lick the spray if you apply it to his paws? I agree that steroids on the longer term use always make me concerned. Have you tried Benedryl?

    Any meds that we have to wear gloves to apply is obviously toxic to us so what's it doing to our dogs!,I'd avoid personally and find a natural ingredient ,perhaps try grape seed oil ,it won't harm and it's anti fungal /viral and is very bitter to taste so may lessen/ stop the urge to lick
