Doasges for Natural Supplements for Dog Allergies
by Jessie M.
(Oklahoma City, OK)
My dog Ellie gets really bad allergies about this time every year with the grass and heat. She itches like crazy and has had to be put on prednisone several times.
I am wanting to get her off the steroids and never use them again as they are too hard on her.
I have tried Benadryl and that doesn't seem to do anything for the itching and just makes her out of it.
After doing a lot of research it looks like I have found supplements that may work for her. It looks like they need to be built up in her system before they start working so I want to get her started as soon as possible.
After reviewing Dr. Mercola and Dr.Beckers (both holistic) recommendations for allergies on dogs I haven't been able to find what doses to give and how. I want to be careful and not overload her as she has had sensitive tummy issues but want to give her enough where she can start to get some relief. I don't want to give her anymore OTC meds such as Benadryl.
The supplements they recommend are:
Quercetin with Bromelain
How should I dose these?
Ellie has had many problems with her IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and GI (Gastrointestinal Tract). It has taken us months of research and trying things but we have remedied most all of her stomach issues through a raw diet.
She is doing really well and hasn't had to be on any antibiotics for GI for months. She does take Carafate for an ulcer issue.
Ellie, a Yorkie, is 6lbs. She just turned 9 years old.
