Remedy for Maltese with Severe Skin Allergies?

My dog is 2 1/2 yrs old and bites her paws so badly there is no hair there anymore. We brought her to a dermatologist and she has about 30 different allergens. We started allergy shots, after about a year we stopped because it wasn't working, we tried special diets, allergy pills, shampoos and conditioners. Nothing really helps. We even got her Benadryl spray, which works for about 10 minutes. Any other suggestions?

1 tablespoon of plain yogurt, low fat is fine. The best brand is Stoneyfields or Stoneyfarms (has no additives) cannot recall the name of it. I make my own now.

Also get some local raw honey, put 1/2 tsp in with the yogurt. Once a day on the honey 2x daily on the yogurt.

This has helped my bully dog find great relief. It cannot hurt the dog and it may work for your baby too. The idea on the honey is that local bees are collecting the pollen and this little bit each day will help her to develop a resistance.

As for the yogurt it helps balance the gut flora and keeps the body balanced at the same time. Also is beneficial to the skin and coat.

Also is a lovely treat for them.

Does she scratch at her ears? She may have inner ear mites and the meds they give you for this really don't work. In England they have been using this on there pets there for over 100 years and it works to clear up ear mites. It is called Thornit.

The earmites can get onto the paws from scratching and then the chew the heck out of their paws. You fix the ears and rub a bit on the paws and it kills them. Safe for the dog too.

Good Luck!

I had a cairn terrier who was allergic to many things, especially his food. I tried making his food for him, but after about 6 months he would be back to biting and chewing himself. He had no hair if he could reach the spot with his teeth. He was miserable. I couldn't give up on him (he was the kids dog) so I kept trying different foods. (broccoli was the worst!)

I was about to head out to the exotic meats shop for some tiger meat or whatever (imagine what that would cost) when I tried canned salmon. I would cook six cups (6 cups cooked, not dry rice) or so of brown rice and stir in a large (15 oz I think) can of salmon (bones skin and all). In about a week he stopped chewing. His hair grew back and he never had another problem.

He was nearly 18 years old when he died. Dont give up, and remember that even when the allergen is removed the dog may have skin conditions that need treatment (bacteria and fungus). Also if he has airborne allergies an air cleaner can really help. Good luck to you.

I have never tried this product but you are probably desperate to give your baby relief. The web site is www.allergicpet.com then go to skin-eze. If the pictures are as true as the product then this is a wonderful product.

Again, I have not tried this product. Hope this helps you and your baby.

Listerine. Amber colored only. No pink blue green or whatever. Dip and do not rinse. Spray till wet, cotton wads, whatever but all spots affected, making sure feet are dipped. Often as it is not harmful. We use it on many skin problems of livestock and pets of all kinds. For feet sometimes used athlete's foot spray, any brand is safe. google Nzymes.com and contact them about skin help. We have used their products for years on our disabled and abused pets we take in. It is everything their site says. Diet change please. No corn wheat or soy. Nothing from China. Give at least some raw foods. Nzymes.com? Can't live without it. Keep me posted please.

One thing you might want to consider is that the constant paw licking and biting can be a symptom of an emotional problem in dogs. I would guess it may be genetic. It would be worth googling it to learn more.
