I picked up Hydrocortisone Spray for my dog three days ago at Wally World. It worked instantly!! This is the only product purchased OTC that has helped my dog. I read this forum every day and I had not seen it mentioned.
Marleys Story-Great Pye rescued at 1 year
Last summer at two years old she started this itching. Always been on Front Line Plus. Took her to the Vet. I think the Front Line is not working. Vet said it was not fleas because she did not see any signs of fleas on her rear, and they needed to rule out food allergy. She had scratch marks all over her stomach and between her legs.
This is what the Vet gave her in June 2010
Prescription Dog Food for 8 weeks a few pounds for $60
lasted almost a week.
Prescription liquid omega vitiams to put on food
allergy meds (didn't work)
This is what she got in July
More prescription dog food
More prescription vitiams
diferent allergy meds (didn't work)
vectra 3D flea prevention
More prescription dog food (food trial ended 8/17) still scratching.
revolution flea prevention (found ticks)
Prescription Temaril-P_tablets worked after first dose. She was weaned off those after three weeks. Also gained 5 pounds. She is on the thin side for a Great Pye, weighed 86 pounds after taking the tablets. Vet determined seasonal allergy. Shortly after taking the tablets we had our first frost and she has not been itching till recently.
