I know, it raises my BGL and my eye pressure so I can't use it at all.
Just remember, nothing ventured nothing gained. Doesn't hurt to ask about a discount....maybe the vet can give you one on it if the drug company doesn't.

The Appquel is a miracle drug. There was no discount since I didn't buy a whole bottle. Even with a discount, I couldn't afford that. But, I got a month's worth, and after the first dose, Bingo seems much more comfortable. I'll give him a bath in the hot weather this weekend, and he should be on the road to growing back his fur.

He's semi_naked? OhMy........ Shocked

My Nicki was so allergic to flea bite that she scratched out all the fur on her back and her back legs were totally naked and looked like chicken legs. There were no meds then for doggie allergies, poor pup.

Poor thing. This new medicine is great. I don't know if they make a kitty version, but I think it will be a turning point for so many dogs with allergies. I hope they have a kitty version too. I imagine that there will be a generic soon too. It doesn't usually take long for that to happen any more. I can't wait since it costs about $2/day once you're done with the loading dose now. I think I'm going to try taking Bingo off it once the grass pollen settles down. He isn't allergic to the weeds that make people miserable in late summer. Trees and grass get him going. So, I will spend the money in spring and early summer and see what happens later in the year when I stop giving it to him. If he gets itchy, I'll just start back up and suffer the 2 week loading dose costs.

Nicki was a small terrier mix. After we discovered the flea bite allergy she went 100% paper trained. Problem solved, until she picked one up at the vets office waiting room. Very expensive flea to get rid of.

Glad there is a treatment now for stuff like that. Hope the price goes down as the years go by. Most meds prices do as time passes.

Yup except those that the drug companies decide to abuse. Epipens... Sigh...

Bingo feels so good he almost took me for a jog instead of a walk. It was hot outside, and he was trotting down the road. We walked early because it was going to get hot. I broke a good sweat walking him, which I don't usually do.

Mr. Energy Dog. He's been running around the yard and even chased one of the bold squirrels. Gave that little rodent a surprise. Maybe he'll think twice before he heads towards the feeders. Laughing

This just keeps getting better and better! I can imagine him chasing that squirrel right up the tree and nearly going after it if only he could climb.....

I really like the new energetic Bingo. We got home really late last night, and he came out to do his thing. His buddy is here, so it was dog romping at midnight. Then, he wanted to play with me. He'd run to my feet, lower down his front end, and TAKE OFF for me to chase. It was a bit much exercise for me in the middle of the night, but I tried. Smile

He has. He was playing with his friend the past few days, so he's a little tired today. I don't know if he will be playful tonight.

If he has a nice powernap I bet he'll be raring to go!

He ate something funny last night. I woke up to a yucky surprise. He is fine though. He's had his energy and went on a nice walk to visit his friends, William and Monet. Smile

I didn't think of this, but maybe he was having reactions to the new meds. He's been absolutely fine since last Tuesday. Maybe a side effect is occasional side effect is tummy upset. He says it's ok if it keeps him from scratching his fur off.

Right now, he's lying on top of the AC vent. It's plenty hot outside today, and he wanted a cool down after his yard romp. I've kept the air a bit cooler since we have today off work. I usually let it go warmer during the day and just use a fan while I work, but I figure since the whole family is home, we'll splurge.

Hopefully the tummy upsets will subside the longer he's on the meds. Smart dog...hogging the AC. Quick way to cool off. Bet you could feel the heat coming off of him, didn't you?

They are much better now. Nothing for a couple weeks now. He was a bit *umm* gassy after he ate some watermelon, but I think that was just him being a dog. Ugh! Urp

Had to pick up the first refill today. I was thinking that I'd stop the pills when grass pollen goes down. The vets said it is just as good to keep him on it since he feels so good. That way, he won't have to go through the loading dose and upset tummy again.

That is very true with meds....and with ragweed season coming up pretty quick here it makes sense to keep him on it for now anyway.

Funny thing is that he isn't sensitive to weeds at all. It's just trees and grass. But, I figure that there's always something pollinating here. Why mess with success? Smile

Silly dog. Today he was chasing a dragonfly. It had the nerve to land on his back so he turned his head and woofed. It flew away, and he was on the chase. Too cute! I doubt he'll get a chance tomorrow. The weather is supposed to heat up a LOT.

So hot today. We went on an abbreviated walk. Bingo decided he'd had enough about 2/3 of the way to our usual turn-around spot. Even though I brought water and a portable dish, he was ready to come home and nap on top of the AC vent. Now that it's a cool 88 degrees, he wants to go outside.
