I actually started to give one of the dogs bee pollen back when I didn't know what Ozzys allergy problem was. Bee pollen is something that doesn't have immediate results and not everyone would show results. Children that are say fed honey from a young age or something, have fewer allergies. I'm not to sure on that exact story but I have read about it before. Its a long treatment plan, I wouldn't expect results for years. Does your dog have allergies, if so what are the symptoms?
Ever since I brought Tag home from the pound he's been getting worse. I'm thinking it may be a grass allergy. He loves being outside in the yard. I never keep him outside for very long, he's a Chihuahua. The antibiotic seems to be working on healing the red sores and he tested negitive for scabies. He scratches and bites his front legs till it bleeds.
My vet recommened for my dogs to use the off brand of claritin for our dogs allergies and it works. I buy the off brand at wal-mart. It's equate non-drowsy allergy relief. I would ask your vet. It works for my puppy.
Benedryl can also be used for allergies. Also if its a topical allergy, bathing in a soothing shampoo can help. You might just trying wiping him down every time he comes in out of the grass. "Relief" is one shampoo out there that might help. It also comes in a spray. Ask your vet about it. It has a topical anesthetic that helps stop the itching. So many times the problem becomes worse because you can't break the itch/scratch cycle. Allergies can be tough to treat. Good luck!
Have you tried NuVet vitamins? You can't believe what they can do! They help scratching, itching, hot spots, allergies, arthritis, catarats digestive problems, heart disease, and tumors. It's awesome, I've been using it for over a year now. I put my dalmation on their NuJoint product, and it has worked wonders for her hip displasia, I also had 2 females, that became anemic when i was feeding Natural Balance (which is why I have switched to Nutro Ultra), and I put them on Nuvet along with switching their feed and they are perfectly fine and healthy now. Oh and one of them had a heart murmur from being anemic, which is common for dogs who are low in iron. It's a great product.
if you use honey or bee pollen for plant/grass/weed allergies it needs to local bee pollen or local honey. Using bee pollen or honey from somewhere else is pretty much useless. It does take awhile to see results but if you use local honey/bee pollen then you have a better chance for reducing allergies--
My mom uses local honey for her mini dachshund that has tons of grass and weed allergies. It has helped him alot. She started using local honey in his homemade food in January this year and he doesnt itch near as much as he used to when he is outside.
