Thanks. I was just giving Cassie one Benadryl a day. I will have to try with at least two a day. She weighs between 45 and 50.

I still have a little of the shampoo it is called Allergroom by Virbac Animal Health. It is a routine shampoo for normal or dry skin for dogs, cats and horses. Hypoallergenic, emollient, restoring, antiseborrheic. California has some really goofy restrictions they are always taking things off the market.

As far as the pills I was giving Weaver two in the morning and two in the evening and he weighs 60 pounds.

Wow, why don't they let you get the shampoo there anymore? Is there anything that is really close that would help?

I wonder if those pet wipes would work. I have some, but I haven't used them all that much. I even had to re-wet them because the container they are in broke and they all dried out. But I can't give the cat a bath without getting clawed to death, so we got those wipes. Will have to be using a lot of them this next week because one of the ladies who plays a "tomb lady" with me is allergic to cats and her eyes have been bothering her because she has been too close to me during practice.

I will try the allergy pills for a while and see if they help. I have read that they should have something like 10 mg/10 pounds. Is that what you were told? I may have misunderstood and been giving her the wrong amount and that is why they weren't helping.

Allergy season for Weaver is very bad this year. Benedryl helped a little and the Vet gave him a shot that helped. One year I had to give him a bath 3 times a week with special shampoo I got from our vet. Now I can't get the shampoo because it cannot be sold in California or shipped to California. The vet also said to wipe him down with a damp cloth to get the allergens off when he comes in the house. We have our house inside treated for fleas and mites once a month when our pest control comes to do the outside of the house, this really helped.

Yeah, the vet said possible allergies. Had her on Benedryl for a while but it didn't help. She has had different foods and that hasn't helped. I've tried coconut oil, too. Her skin doesn't look dry, she just keeps itching. Plus she gets backed up anals, so has to get them cleaned and she still has fits there.

Sounds like she may have allergies. Weaver was driving us crazy with his itching so we had him allergy tested a couple of years ago. Unfortunately he is allergic to most grasses, dust mites and storage mites. This year has been a really bad year for Weaver so the vet gave him a shot.

Most of them are sweep them in and leave 20 minutes. Be gentle sweeping or you can by a dust storm.

I have read about both diatomaceous earth and borax for killing things in the carpets, though have also read the DE is not so good to use as they use to say. I was wondering how long one is supposed to leave these things on the carpet before vacuuming, though. I tried some borax the other day but didn't leave it very long (long enough to get the vacuum set up to use it) and I don't know if it is actually suppose to be left a half hour or more instead. I haven't seen anything that causes Cassie's constant itching and when she was at the vet he never found anything, but she only stops when she is wet from a bath. As soon as she is dried off, she is scratching again. Skin is not dried out from too many baths because she doesn't get many.
