We allergy tested after a couple of episodes of this:


We had already done the elimination diet and gone on the prednisone, antibiotic, benadryl merry-go-round a few times as well.

We had the intradermal skin test done because the dermatologist we went to said that was her preference and she thought it was a much more exact test than the blood test.

The testing cost $440 and the first vial of allergy serum (which lasts about 5 months or so cost $200). Serum refills are about $160. This is what she looked like after the skin test:


But even though we do an allergy injection every 3 weeks; during her allergy season we still use Zyrtec twice a day, and occasionally we have to do the temeril p/antibiotic routine. We use medicated shampoo and I try to bathe her once a week.

We also give omega 3 fatty acids:

That's our allergy experience for what it is worth.

Allergies SUCK!

In my opinion - you need to go to the vet - which will likely result in a steroid shot and/or a shot of benardyl followed by your going home either with oral steroids and/or antibiotics and/or instructions to continue oral benadryl.

Then after the immediate outbreak is treated - you need to figure out what the dog is reacting to.
