"We have a designated "dog couch" in our family room. The dogs are allowed up on that couch & on no other furniture. They know that & don't even try to get on any other furniture. The Hubby or I usually sit on…"
"Off topic, but there are a couple of threads here (including this one) that I keep getting individual emails to. I'm set for digests & have unfollowed the threads, but it seems like I get an email notification several times a day for…"

"Yes, I'm sure all the nonsense about heavy metals and grain free foods was all a carefully orchestrated plan on the part of mult-national Nestle to weaken Champion's bargaining power. It's always about the money.Very sad."
Hi Samina, the Atopic Dermatitis Support Group is really intended for people whose dogs have already been diagnosed with allergies by a veterinary dermatology specialist. It is really essential that you consult a derm specialist to get some relief for Snickers. GP vets really are not qualified to diagnose or treat allergies, just as your pediatrician would refer you to an allergy specialist if your child had allergies. A consultation with a specialist is really the only way to know for sure what the issues are and treat them. Allergies are a disease of the immune system and cannot be cured, only managed. But you have to know what you are dealing with in order to do that. In severe cases, the dog must either be tested and then put on immunotherapy, or put on immunosuppressive drugs.
If after reading these, you still want to join the A.D. Support Group, I'll approve it, but as I said, it's really more for sharing experiences with treatment of dogs who have already been diagnosed , and not for general info.
Hi Samina~ What a doll that Snickers is - I can see why she has stolen your heart! When you get a chance be sure to check out the groups section on the main page and join as many as you like. Welcome to Doodle Kisses.
