My 6 month old Maltipoo has allergies. She sneezes, scratches her ears, chin and bites her feet. I am awaiting results from a blood test my vet took. The past two days, however, she has been lethargic and pants frequently when she does small activities inside the house. She has never been like this before. Does anyone feel that this behavior could be caused by allergies?
Sounds like allergies to me. The panting and being lathargic would worry me though. Could she have gotten into maybe some cleaning supplies you might have used? Good luck and hope she feels better. Allergies are terrible. We have one of our females that chews on her feet and scratches all the time. Finally, the weather getting cooler she has stopped. I also put Avon's Skin So Soft on her to keep her from having dry skin. I also give Children's Benedryl that helps some.
i agree with what sandiesbabies said. but also you may want to switch to an allergy formula food. my male frenchie has allergies. he has greatly improved since i switched him onto the natural balance potato and duck. they have a couple of other allergy formulas too. great stuff. hope your baby gets better soon !
I just spoke with my vet. She is allergic to fungus and molds. Since I live in Florida, this is a continual problem. He suggested that I start with allergy shots, gradually building up to a maintenance level. Has anyone out there had this same problem? Do the shots work? Any feedback on the vet's suggestion?
