Dogs have allergies, just like people. My sister had a very allergic dog who used cortisone creams prescribed by the vet

It will vary from dog to dog. One of my daughters dogs required a food change and that took care of it. Meanwhile her sisters dog has had to have medications, food changes and can't even go outdoors and it still remains.

Depends on what they are allergic to.

You do need veterinary advice on this, and a vet would be able to tell you the most common allergens. I don't know Aristocort, but using steroids on a dog without having him checked out could be risky.

Thats all good no harm meant but my little pup had an adverse reaction from advocate flea treatment. One of the problems he suffered is itchy red ears his vet prescribed him isaderm gel and charged me two small squirts of it and I mean small for £15 to last 3 day it only lasted 2 days. When 3days past I returned to the vet for my pups check up his ears had cleared well but still needed more gel for 2 days more days I was given one small sqirt of get and charged another £15 so all in all I played £30 for 3 small sqirts of isaderm gel imagine if I needed it continually.

I think its shocking, I've looked online and a whole tube is between £8 to £10 and for a larger tube for £15. I need to find another way of treating it I hope I can.

OMG, i know what you mean! The vet helps it for a minute, but not how to KEEP their skin healthy! I have been using coconut oil on her ears, and its helping soo much! The crust is almost gone! I just read what others have done, & she is SOO much better! I am going to do the cortizone also, on the bad areas. I hope this helps.

I used dTERRA essential oils on my puppy. 4 drops each of Lavender, Helichrysum and Roman Chamomile in a rollerball topped up with fractionated coconut oil. I applied it 3 times a day to the affected areas (basically her arm pits and groin). It gave her so much relief from the scratching and cleared up the abrasions.

I also sprayed her bedding and the rugs in the house with a mix of Lavender oil and water. I use dTERRA essential oils because they're 100% pure and therapeutic grade.

Be very cautious when using essential oils on or around your pets. Some are toxic and could be deadly, especially for small animals.
