    I had to take brutus to the vet today, he got a lot worse than just paw licking. He broke out everywhere with little bumps and rashes. We were on vacation so could t take him until today. It's seasonal allergies. Vet gave him 2 Shots and some pills. He is doing better already. This is the first fall season we have had with him so I think we know what to expect now.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Allergies are so tough to control.

    My "newest" routine these last few months has mostly worked. But Blue's also on an Rx food and getting allergy "shots" daily (oral version).

    Keep clean, make sure there's no yeast, I keep Claritin 10mg redi-tabs on hand (the non-flavored ones) when he gets hives, and I use a topical spray called Betagen. It requires an Rx but works wonders for rashes, cuts and itching for allergies. Just can't use on yeast.

    Sure beats getting shots or pills.

    What helps with Banks is i wipe her paws, belly and face after each outing--- tedious but very helpful

    Bruts is doing much, MUCH better today. His redness and bumps have subsided and he's not licking or scratching.

    @BlueberrysMom - poor sweet blue, that is a routine you got going on there. This is the first time i've had to deal with them, ruthie doesn't have allergies. I just hope this won't be an ongoing issue with him. We at least know he will have fall allergies and can make it though the season with one allergy shot. I wonder what spring is going to bring for him.

    Glad he's doing better, I sure hope spring isn't worse for him.
