    With benedryl it is 1mg per pound, so Maximus could have almost 3. 1 will not do anything to help a 67lb bully.

    Christine, Gator and Lex.......

    I think you guys are right ! I gave Maximus 2-tabs of Benadryl this morning, and already I see a big difference in his FACE. The redness around his eyes is gone and the red face is now a light pink. So I think I will give him 2 more tabs tonite and I think I will see an even bigger difference .......

    Thanks guys !

    @Maximus... great to hear! stay consistent with 50mg twice a day until the first freeze. we've done it for a few years and it has always helped.

    Anywhere from $150 to $500 depending on your vet, the lab they use, what you want testing done for. We had 3 tests run on Sarah (this was about 10 years ago!) and one was food, the other was seasonal (pollens, trees, ect,) the last one was misc (molds, mice droppings, and if I remember correctly it was about $350 or so.

    Once we found out what she was allergic to, they made a serum to make her no longer allergic to those things. That of course costed more. I had to give her shots of the serum daily, until it became weekly, then eventually monthly.

    But in the end, what really cured her, was a high quality dog food that did not have any of the ingredients she was allergic to. Go figure!

    Hello,
    I have 6 Bullies: 5.5, 5, 3.5, 2, 9 mo, 6 mos. Only the 9 mo is related (she is from a litter from our dogs).
    Only one of them seems to be having these types of problems and it is the 9 mo old puppy from the litter.
    The dad and mom do not seem to be affected, but I have started on the puppy.

    Good Info,
    Good Day~

    Oh, I am so glad it is helping . We are going in on Thursday afternoon to get the staples out of Gator's eye (hopefully) and talk about allergy issues. I am curious to see how we will manage his issues.

    When we had the allergy testing done... it was one test called a 'full screen allergy test'. This was two/three years ago and we paid $150.00.
