It's also really good to use it to prevent heart worms. If not treated they are deadly and earlier this year there was a shortage in the US so if your dog contracted them there wasn't an cure.

I've heard that vets get "kick backs" for recommending a certain food or medicine. I've been using it for several years though and I swear by it.

have you tried calling around to the vets and seeing if any offer payment plans. May not be for the allergy testing but with her so uncomfy they can maybe prescribe something to help alleviate the discomfort and maybe check her to make sure she doesn't have a secondary infection now due to the open wounds and scratching which is very possible. Also ask about insurance sometimes they know where you can apply and it is usually a low monthly fee like $10 or something like that and it covers basic medical care { the one here is anything in the vets office, check ups, emergency visits, vaccines ect. The only thing we pay for are out of office things like when we send in samples to the labs for tests}. I know not everyone offers this but it i worth a try to see if any around you do. Also contact the shelters , sometimes they have contacts they can refer you too for help at low cost clinics.

I've never heard is such cheap insurance. But when I can afford it I'm getting some damn good pet insurance, even tho I don't have any lol most places around me don't do payments they do care credit which I don't qualify for

calm down , all u need to do is get flea drops and worming tablets and cream from a pet store. the kind of cream is for healing broken skin and redness for collar rash, put cream on broken red areas . u are worrying about nothing , if u worry too much u will end up with psoriasas u mad women

Jus from my experience-I had a pug when I lived with my parents and he had allergies BAD. Scratching himself raw. He got cortisone shots and some cream that helped. I know you said you can't really afford the vet right now, but have you tried Homemade remedies? Just to help her? There are a lot of posts in here, you can search for it, that give cheaper ways to temporarily relieve your dogs discomfort.

I know you love and care about your dogs, but if you can't afford them the best thing would be to find a new home for them. Do you have any pitbull rescues around you?

Pitbulls are notorious for having allergies and skin issues. They often require special food that is not super cheap.

If you insist of keeping them, you need to try switching her food. What are you feeding her right now? In general, anything you can get at a grocery store is not good quality.

We have our puppy who has skin issues (and no verified allergies, but his father is allergic to chicken so we are being careful) on Taste of the Wild, a grain free food. Bison and Venison. It's around $50 per 30lb bag. Between him and our female (on the same food, adult version) we spend $100 a month on food alone.

Dogs are not cheap!

Cain was on purina when we first got him. He had very dry flakey skin and his hair didn't feel good. We switched him to our dog food and have had no skin issues although every dog is different. Grain free could help. If it happened after the frontline it could be a reaction to that possibly. Maybe try a different flea and tick medication. I believe trifexis was mentioned. My in laws use it an SWEAR by it.
