Frenchies are known to have allergy issues. Lily did not present any allergy symptoms until she was about 6 years old.
First, they started with red, itchy, paws. Then sneezing and a runny nose presented. Followed pretty closely with bumps that came up on her skin, got crusty, then the hair fell out.
I tried everything:
- Grain free food
- Washing all linens and toys in scent free laundry soap
- Medicated baths like MicroTek
- Using only organic and pet safe cleaning materials
- Wiping down paws after walks
NOTHING worked. At my wits end, I visited the vet yet again and they prescribed Apoquel and a weekly bath with KetoHex – well that did the trick! No more itchy paws, no more bumps – just a happy healthy Lily!
