I am excited to say that we have had such a turn around with Maddox and his potty training! It's been a while since he has had an accident in the house.
We do, however seem to have a problem with itching and biting. He has been to the vet twice, and they say "allergies". First visit we were given some antihistimine to start him on and some new shampoo. Said no fleas really, just may be dry skin and allergies...so we gave him the anithistimines in the am, and benadryl at night for 3 weeks. Still itching and scratching. Used 3 of the capstar pills and frontline twice in the past few months...his last visit to the vet they said some dogs are just more sensitive to fleas, and even a few would make them do that. We used advatage(?) flea prevention this time and he is on the benadryl twice a day.
Someone mentioned food allergies, but the vet's office poo poo'd that idea. Said at 19 weeks he was too young to develop food allergies. He started on puppy chow, and had eaten that until this week when i bought purina one puppy food. Figured we would see if it helped.
Any advice or suggestions would be so appreciated!
Let me just say, I love this dog to death!! It's kind of weird (to me at least) that I can't wait to get home to him and find myself scheduling things he can do with us and not staying gone long if he can't come...Am I nuts or just a new dog mommy? LOL
I have got to get some pic of him-he is beautiful!! He will be 5 months old this months, and weighs 45 lbs.
