    Zyrtec to use instead of the Benadryl
    NuStock for her bare skin
    Fermented sauerkraut for her diet

    To recap Bella is currently taking the following daily;
    2 x 1 cup of Fromm Mature Adult kibble, I think líll change her back to the Fromm lamp and lentil and maybe combine it with some raw food
    2 x 1/8 green tripe paddy
    3 x 25mg Benadryl
    2 x 1000mg of salmon oil with the low EPA and DHA
    2 x 437.5 Clavulin antibiotic
    2 x 1 Zesty Paws Cranberry Bladder Bites

    Plus I am spraying her with a mixture of 25% hydrogen peroxide, 25% ACV and 50% water.
    This could be an allergic issue with the food... you are feeding chicken , two types of rice.... try one of the non-chicken and avoid grains. Give the pork and peas a shot until you decide to go raw.

    My boy was allergic to both these ingredients.. he would always vomit and scratch, after a few months we did a blood panel test and the results were chicken and rice sensitivity... at the time we were feeding chicken and rice kibble as well as bland diet which was chicken and rice.... once we removed both those items, he was fine... all issues cleared up

    Well that didn’t work out very well; Un Stock and Zyrtec appear to be available in the USA not Canada. I couldn’t find fermented sauerkraut. We are going to visit friends in Vermont tomorrow so I will pick these items up while I am in the USA. I did pick up a bag of Fromm lamb and lentil kibble and started mixing it with the Mature Adult for her supper last night. When I purchased the lamb and lentil I quickly remembered why I changed to the Fromm Mature Adult, it is pricey C$120 tax in.

    I admit I didn’t read the ingredients on the Fromm Mature Adult kibble until I looked at the bag the other day. I found the lamb and lentil pricey so I asked at Global Pet Foods what other Fromm type of kibble was popular and they suggested the Mature Adult because it was half the price and she is 10 years old so I started feeding it to her. She looked good when she was on the lamb and lentil, I believe I now know why. Fingers crossed, I hope this change in kibble helps.

    I ordered NuStock online and you can also order Zyrtec in Canada. It’s a prescription here. As you probably know, Canada is very strict when it comes to all meds coming in this country.

    Btw, Why 25% hydrogen peroxide ?

    Thank you for the link, interesting. The 25% hydrogen peroxide, 25% ACV and 50% water was recommended to help her skin issue. I’ve been spraying her bare skin with it and it seems to be helping.

    What concerns real fermented sauerkraut, you need to check for international food supermarkets, where Polish, German etc specialties are sold. It is staples food for Russians, Polish and German people.

    @Bella Bluenoser, Fermented sauerkraut or veggies are all over Canada. Especially in health food stores.

    You should be able to find fermented sauerkraut also in organic refrigerated section of No Frills supermarket. I think milk kefir is good too if your dog doesn't have lactose allergy.

    Zyrtec is purchased very inexpensively as OTC cetirizine at Costco. Main advantage over benadryl is that it's only once daily, and less sedating. Sedating is a good thing though if you are giving at night.

    I would say best dog kibble in Canada ( if you want to stick with kibble ) and only one recommended by Dr. Karen Becker, holistic vet, is Carna4 duck. An even better one is a dehydrated raw food from PetSmart known as Only Natural EasyRaw. My dog did better on that than on Canisource GrandCru dehydrated raw. Even better is to switch to a frozen raw for allergies.

    Sounds interesting. If it stops working try buying chlorhexidine shampoo for dogs. https://www.amazon.ca/Davis-Chlorhex...59CKM0WG9XVNDF
