my pug fred is 3 yrs old.every summer is iratations are really bad,the vet gives him a shot of prednisone and a six day supply of pills.this helps until pills run out,the vet will not give refills on this drug.does anyone have the same problem and have you found any solutions.
May not be the right thing to do but my Maddie, (3 year old Bosont Terrier), gets little bumps around her neck every summer and I take a Benadryl capsule and open it and sprinkle a TINY TINY TINY amount on her morning meal. She does not get sleepy and it helps with the itching. My vet used to give her Prednisone with another medicine mixed in with it but the Benadryl works just as well and one capsule will last for about 4 days or so.
Now keep in mind, I am NOT a vet but you asked for other solutions and this is what works for me.
Best of luck!
