my poor pei Jackie has sensitive skin and in the heat it gets itchy- she scratches....The vet prescribed Cipro to cut the infection but what about pain? The vet said I could give her half of a Benadryl (otc) I am so afraid I will lose another dog due to this heatwave!

I was just talking to another shar-pei owner the other day who recently moved here; her dog has been having a hard time with skin allergies.
Elwood has had problems too, Chlortrimeton seems to help.

The vet gave our Golden a Benadryl shot and that helped immediately. He also prescribed some Benadryl tabs but I could have given him the same thing OTC. Next time I will and save the $15 since it is the same thing. But it made him feel better right away so I wouldn't hesitate to use it.

My vet gave antibiotic shot & told me to get Benadryl Cream or Hydrocortisone from the drug store. I have used both, the cream is less messy than the ointment. It does give relief, at least for a while. I've also found that ChlorhexiDerm shampoo helps if you leave it on for about 10 min before rinsing.

Check your dogs food ingrediants.. if it has corn or crude product anywhere in the label, get your dog off the food and on a new diet of food. Also feed your dog once a day, or two small meals a day--put the food down if the dog does not eat it within 15 min pick it up and thats it til next feeding.

What happanes is corn attracts fleas and it a huge filler so no nutritional value at all.... dogs are carnivors!

If you leave the food down for your dog to eat liesurely, this causes unnesssary digestion enzymes in your dogs stomach, so it is constantly got acid and juices going, this also contributes to skin problem, leaky but and loose stool.

These are the suggestiosn from our vet of 35 years and so far its worked for all our pets.

Just get your dog off of Corn.

Another alternative is to move to Alaska. We don't have fleas or tics here.

She is allergic to soy...so I am careful with her food: the Cipro helped, she has no redness, Thank God it is finally raining today- Maybe by next week we will no longer have 89 degree temperatures! The heat really aggravates her skin....
