Well, I read the suggestions on the original Itchy Puppy thread. I tinkered with her diet. I tried different shampoos and balms. I finally gave in and had her blood tested for allergies. Guess what? She is allergic to 19 different things including cotton and grasses! Two weeks ago, the vet's office called and said her medication was in. She now takes...get this...two (2) shots (administered by me!) every four days for the next twenty days. then we move on to vial series two. That's two shots every five (5) days for thirty days. Then....it's vial series three with two (2) shots every eight days for forty days until we get to give her two (20 shots every eight days for the next sixteen days and then a shot every three (3) weeks for six weeks and then two shots every thirty days for ever! This poor dog is a pin cushion! Anybody want a papered Miniature Poodle? Cheap!
