and your alternative is ?????

You'll eat grass (without sharing it with either of the girls because they are both allergic....) before you'll stop taking them to the vet for some relief. I just wish there was a simple solution to their problem(s). Poor babies....

Dd said maybe it is time for a new vet.I have taken her back 4 times for the same thing.She will get a shot & the same meds. It just start the whole thing again.When she is done with the meds it starts back up.
groomer said it could be the carpet & dust mites.I can not get rid of the carpet as much as I would love that.I shampoo the carpet when my back will let me. Might have to vacuum more IDK..

Fred, our late cat, was allergic to fleas. We put Advantage on him every three weeks (instead of once a month) yet after six months or so, it would seem to stop working and we'd have to get him a steroid shot to sort of get him started again. The vet said the steroids, naturally, were hard on his kidneys but we didn't use the shots in lieu of anything else, and we didn't want the cat to suffer miserably, as he did with flea bites (he found us almost 16 years ago so he remained an inside/outside cat). The vet agreed and we had a good relationship with her over the years.

When Brian took our poor Fred to the vet t be put to sleep after he had the stroke, they didn't even charge us for putting him down. They did this at no charge for their customers. We just had to pay $15 to have him buried. We thought that was so sweet. The vet also sent us a card afterwards, telling us how sorry she and her staff were about Fred, as they loved him, too. (am crying right now, as we miss him sooo much).
