The Itchy Frenchie

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
  • Benadryl
  • 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 Рwell that did the trick! No more itchy paws, no more bumps Рjust a happy healthy Lily!

What is your experience with Frenchies and allergies?
