Dogs allergies universal treatment:
Since dogs’ hair is often an accumulator of allergens, bathing at least once every 1-2 weeks, preferably using hypoallergenic shampoos made with oatmeal components.
Systemic treatment should prescribe histamine receptor blockers and mast cell stabilizers. It is advisable to alternate 2-3 drugs prescribed for 7-14 days.
In our opinion, Smile4pet veterinarian antihistamines should not be used as an allergies treatment; to establish the allergic nature of dermatitis on an “ex juvantibus” basis. Mast cells and the substances they produce are involved in the pathogenesis of any dermatitis. The positive effect of which might not be observed only in allergies.
Recommend oral administration of prednisone or prednisolone. Dose: I mg/kg per day; in the morning, until the itching disappears (3-10 days); then prescribe the medicien one additional day laterAccording to The Use of Low-dose Oral Methotrexate in the Treatment of Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis by Newman ED, Scott DW
It should be kept in mind that one glucocorticoid may be effective in the same pathology, while the effect is insignificant. In such cases, it is advisable to change the drug.
Cats allergies universal treatment:
In cats, glucocorticoids, unlike in humans and dogs, due to not yet fully understood phenomena, cause minimal side effects. It is advisable to use long-acting drugs such as Depo-Medrol.
Usage: repositol; methylprednisolone acetate; Dose: 20 mg per cat (5mg/kg) subcutaneously or intramuscularly, but no more frequently than once every eight weeks, or better, every 12 weeks.
If there is no effect, vetalog (triamcinolone acetonide), 5 mg per head, parenterally, once in an 8- to 12-week period, may be used as an alternative. If owners find such therapy uncomfortable, prednisone or prednisolone at a dose of 2.2 mg/kg daily for 5-10 days until remission is achieved, and then switch to the drug every other day.
In combination with oral administration of preparations containing fatty acids, the most common of which is fish oil, are considered to have a good effect.
Conclusion of Universal Allergies treatment:
In conclusion, we would like to note a good effect in treating allergic dermatitis universally after castration of animals and even the complete disappearance of dermatological symptoms. However, this issue needs a more detailed systematic study.
