Allergy season must be kicking up a notch around here regardless of the cooler weather...I just now discovered Hank has some scabby hot spots on his back end. Here we go again. So feel for you, Craig!

Allergies are horrible this season! I started doing allergy shots - the dogs must have found out because now when they go through their sneezing fits in the a.m. they tell me THEY want allergy shots too. Sigh. There's another article for Hank's newsletter...

In case some of you may not have read Cleo's thread, the new vet recommended Wet Wipes MalAcetic by Derma Pet. They are pre moistened wipes and dosed with 2% acetic acid and 2% boric acid.

The vet personally uses them on the dog that she adopted. She has severe allergies and her previous owner was ready to take her to the shelter (&?%?) as she could no longer handle the severe skin infections.

We had a bit of a heat wave in March and Cleo was licking incessantly, I used those wipes on her paws, in between the paws and all over her body and it calmed her right down. I'm sure I'll get some use again this summer.

http://www.amazon.com/DermaPet-Malac.../dp/B0002WPTI4

Wow, I paid $37.95 plus tax. Hope it works as well for any of you who tries them

I also read about another wipe
http://www.vetrxdirect.com/product/view/mal-a-ket-wipes
and it seems to be getting better reviews. When I run out, I may consider those as well

Hey Craig,
I just got to thinking this morning. Benadryl has a warning for patients with glaucoma. I don't know what the effect is but thought I'd bring it up. Is Benadryl ok with the ophthalmologist?

This article suggests that in humans the risk of Benedryl, etc. depends on the type of glaucoma - and I've never seen a reference to what kind of glaucoma dogs generally have.

http://www.southlandeyeclinic.com/FAQ/glaucoma.html

http://www.pfizer.com/files/products/uspi_benadryl.pdf

Quote:

Antihistamines should be used with considerable caution in patients with narrow-angle glaucoma, stenosing
peptic ulcer, pyloroduodenal obstruction, symptomatic prostatic hypertrophy, or bladder-neck obstruction
http://www.animaleyecare.net/diseases/glaucoma.htm

No mention that I could find in a quick scan about whether glaucoma in dogs is distinguished by type.
