"We spent thousands of dollars trying to figure out what to do about itchy dogs, after we had a rescue dog in the house for a few months. We never determined the real cause, but the vets suspected mites (we had no tests that confirmed this). We put…"

We've recently adopted a dog from the shelter not realizing that one of her problems is itchy skin. The vet tells us it's probably a food allergy and we've now had her on a grain-free, no chicken diet for 7 weeks. The itching continues. The histamines haven't work and I've now reluctantly put her on a low dose of prednisone. That has helped the itching but it's not curing her and also causes incontinence. I'm looking for a solution, perhaps someone who does kinesiology on pets?See More
I love the weather and the grand vistas of the sky. I like the city life and the fact that within an hour you can be hiking in the mountains and harldy see a soul. Now that smoking is banned in bars it's a lot more fun to go hear the local bands.
