My dog has bad allergies and I give her Atopica. I now give her Benadryl. What more can I do? She is always scratching.

Some dogs are being prescribed Atopica throughout their lifetime. It all depends on the allergy. Sometimes you might need to give antibiotics to kill infection before giving Atopica. If paws are itching, daily soaking, especially in epsom salt solution and washing paws with certain shampoos designed for skin conditions like dermatitis reliefs itching as well. Some vets try different meds to find the one that will actually work on your dog. It all depends on what your dog is allergic to. Your dog might have allergies from anything, including food. Switching to good quality grain-free food and treats also might help.

Frontline once a month and a bath once a month. vet isn't helping. They gave me Atopica, $110 a bottle. Didn't help, been thru 3 bottles.

Wow $110. Good lord! How long has pet been using the meds? Long enough to know it doesn't work? I'd take to other vet for second opinion. Change food lately?

You need to get a second opinion. Don't over medicate the dog on the meantime.
