It really is something to see how many dogs have allergies. My dog kit has been dealing with them since she was a puppy. She is now 12 and has been on shots for 2 years. I also use apple cider vinegar on her. My problem now is that her medicine is $200 a year. That wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have another dog with health issues that requires prescription dog food. Any suggestions?
Annual Vaccinations or Not: A Vet's Perspective | petMD
I came across this website while researching allergy shots for dogs. I currently give my horse two shots every three weeks, along with five hydroxyzine pills a day. I knew she had allergies when she broke out in hives all over her body and only steroids would help for awhile. I cannot be as sure about my dog. I have a two and a half year old Airedale, Ares, who began licking, scratching, and biting around his tail about two weeks ago. The vet found his anal glands were full, and he had more of a reaction with the right one being emptied. Ares received a shot of steroid and had to take hydroxyzine twice a day. The licking ceased for about eight days. He has begun to lick around his tail again, however, not to the extent before the vet visit. We are trying him on hydroxyzine three times a day, but I am concerned with the underlying cause of his licking. Is it allergies or could it be an infection? He does not have any other symptoms of allergies, and the vet checked him for fleas. I am a firm believer in shots or medicine for allergies, I just do not know if he has them. I am going to talk to my vet again, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Vaccination Schedules for Dogs and Puppies - Pet Education
Sophie is my 8 year old shih tzu and itches constantly ~ feet, body, ears…. I’ve changed her diet many times. Right now she is eating non-grain turkey and potato for dogs with sensitivity. I feel so bad for her. I have been bathing her regularly and this last time with medication for hot spots and itching conditioner. Still didn’t help. I brush her every other day. I’m down to taking her to find out what allergies she has and possibly shots. What do you think?
Vaccination Recommendations for Puppies (Puppy Shots)
What many pet owners don't know, researchers say, is that most yearly vaccines for dogs and cats are a waste of money -- and potentially deadly. Shots for the most important pet diseases last three to seven years, orThe mission of East Side Animal Hospital is to provide the best possible pet care at an affordable price. Pet immunization and vaccination programs for your cat, kitten, dog or puppy are tapered to meet your pet's needs and lifestyle. Since most NYC cats and kittens live indoors, we have a specific Manhattan pet vaccination program tailored especially to him or her. If your cat or kitten lives indoors most of the time, but goes outside from time to time during weekends or the summer, he or she may require a different set of yearly vaccinations. NYC dogs and puppies receive the same special treatment. Dogs living indoors in NYC receive a different set of shots than dogs that spend a good deal of time outdoors or in the country.
