yes i went through this with my abbey. sorry to say it did not help her..
. after the testing it turns out she was allergic to over 25 different things.. i got her shots, which consisted of two a day. and started her on them.. after the first couple days she was scratching worse then ever
i called vet and asked if this was normal, she told me to bring my shots in and they would dilute them that they were to strong. so i did this and continued shots.. she still scratched.. Now, when she completes the first set, yeah, there are two more sets to go thru..
she starts her next set and it starts over again with scratching worse then ever.. so i call vet.. again they tell me to bring them in that they are to strong.. so., again.. same thing they dilute them and we continue.
still scratching,,now the last set of shots.. we start them and scratching is same as beginning.. well, i am getting a little frustrated because not only to i have close to 1000.00 but my poor dog is still suffering.. so again i call vet.. this time they explain to me that what is in the shots are all the things that she is allergic to.. the idea is to build up her immune system so she wont be allergic to that stuff anymore.. needless to say.. i stopped the shots and did many baths, changed food and finally found a vet that put her on apoquel medicine and it has helped her 95%,, she looks and acts like a different dog.. i sure hope you have better luck with them then i did..
it was very upsetting for me to watch her scratch so much and she would bleed from it.. i cried because i could not help her get the relief.. it was very heart breaking.. i know every dog is different with allergies and my abbey unfortunately had many things that would make her scratch that she could not even play without stopping to scratch.. she was miserable..so glad she is better.. yes the pills are a little pricey but i don't care what the cost if she feels and looks better.. good luck and keep me posted if you dont mind.
