I had my vet trip yesterday and my doctor tested my scabs and has ruled out an infection or skin disease. He has confirmed that it is most likely an allergy.
I have started scratching again and I'm very uncomfortable, so they decided that since the Prednisone helped so much last time, they would give me another round of medication so that I can have some relief, and then Mommy will do some experimenting with different foods to check to see if my symptoms come back. If the food trials are unsuccessful, I will have to go back to the vet and get skin tests for inhalants. Mommy is also going to add some Evening Primrose oil to my diet to help my skin (Thanks for the suggestion, Milo and Alfie's Mum!). If any of you have any suggestions for food, Mommy would love to hear them. She wants to keep me on a grain-free diet with some raw food, if possible, but she will try anything if it will keep me comfortable and symptom free.
In the meantime, I'm just happy I will have relief as soon as my medication kicks in. A good long snooze is in order!
