Thank you very much for your caring and help for my dog.
Well, early May brought sudden warm weather and lots of rain this year. The molds evidently flourished here in mid-Michigan. My darling Bichon Frise, Cookie, suddenly had an itch problem that was to become nearly tragic.
I began by giving her a flea treatment of Advantage. No relief. The itching became worse, and began to look red, swollen and possibly infected. Her Vet suspected an allergy, and suggested Benedryl 2x a day. No result. Things got worse.
The vet then suggested a diet change (I cooked for her in order to assure that proper controls were in place) and prescribed an antibiotic, an antihistime shampoo as well as switching her to Chlortrimeton (a different oral antihistimine). Her hair began falling out...everywhere I looked in the house I could see globs of her hair. The itching had become a torment to her, and was still escalating.
Next, the vet added a prescription antihistimine, Atarax, and did a skin scraping looking for possible mites. The Vet gave her an injection of Ivermectin, suspecting mites. No results, and things were getting worse. It is now the end of May. The itching had become true torment, and I began to consider having to put her down. I prayed, literally, for an answer (I believe all things are possible through God, the Father, Almighty). In absolute desperation I began to search the internet for anything...any information or ideas that might help my dog. I came across this site. I called on the telephone immediately and spoke to a wonderful, caring person (Suzanne), who said she thought the Skin-eze products might be helpful. I had the products (all four of them) overnighted to me.
After just 2 or 3 days my dog was showing remarkable relief, and after a week the itching was very much GONE. You could see the the relief in her eyes, and I knew we were on the right track.
It is now the end of July, and Cookie has been enjoying life again and her hair is coming back in nicely. She is very happy, and so am I. Thank you very much for your caring and help for my dog. She cannot speak to you in words, but if she could I'm sure she would tell you she owes you her life.
I just want to mention, Cookie is also diabetic. These products worked for her without causing problems with her blood sugar.
