Monday Mischief: Scratch That Itch

13 May

Sometimes everybody has an itch to scratch.

Spring is an especially itchy time here at the DogDaz Zoo. All the dogs started on allergy medicine several weeks ago when the first crocuses started pushing their heads up out of the snow. Sofie tends to suffer from terrible skin problems in the warmer weather. I give her an antihistamine (this year it is Zyrtec) before her scratching starts to get too bad. Hopefully, this will delay the heavy duty expensive medicine (Apoquel) that we end up having to use by mid-summer (or she scratches her skin off). Louise and Charlie are sneezing and runny too, so everyone is on something every day until this passes.

Aren’t we lucky to live somewhere that everything that grows in the northern US, and everything that grows south, grows here?

What have you tried that helps keep the itch away? Spring flowers are lovely, but oh, this pollen!

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
