|Drugged up and passed out.|
So her seasonal allergies have been really bad lately. Her eyes turn red (Satan? is that you?), she gets itchy all over, and she gets a rash on her butt. Thank goodness for my vet who understands my financial situation because he told me just to give her one Benadryl three times per day and rub aloe on her skin for immediate skin relief before I spend $150 on the dog allergy medicines out there in the world. Yes, $150 for 3 weeks of allergy medicine. No, I didn't buy it. Yes, Benadryl has worked miracles. And yes, it also makes her groggy which is ideal before company comes over. And yes, I give my dog Benadryl. This is extremely comical to my Nigerian friend who tells me in Nigeria "animals are animals" and he would never dream of giving an animal human allergy pills. But the moral of the story is, try aloe and Benadryl before you spend a zillion dollars on doggergies.
*I also tried mixing baking powder and water and rubbing that on her skin. I don't know if it was the smell or the texture but she couldn't stop licking it. Fail. Maybe it works for other dogs though?
