Agility Allergies

grey-sneezingIt’s allergy season, and don’t we all know it! Don’t forget to pack Kleenex when you go out to practice and play with the puppy, or take your benadryl before hand. Speaking of benadryl, I have benadryl to thank for both my childhood dogs! My mother has a bad reaction to benadryl. It makes her sleepy but still functional, and so she would make some interesting decisions during allergy season- such as let’s get the kids dogs, honey! I thank Benadryl for Pee-Wee my Maltese, and Pal, my Great Pyrenees. Poor mom, though, after the season was over we’d hear her saying she had NO idea why she’d gotten them, though she was always glad she had.


What do you do when your DOG has allergies?  While they may not be allergic to all the pollens this time of year like we are, there are many other things dogs are allergic to.  This can make them irritable, itchy, and slow up their agility runs!  I’d like to tell you about a dog health website that I highly recommend. ….  In the video below Dr. Karen Becker gives a holistic non-drug approach to this common problem.

  1. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Terrific work! This is the kind of info that should be shared across the
    net. Shame on Google for not positioning this post higher!
    Come on over and consult with my site . Thank you =)

  3. I would be delighted to tell her story. She had lost a lot of weight and I wasn’t sure what was wrong. The vet ran some tests and found that her white blood cells were off the charts, that even though it was an inflammation problem we didn’t know what was causing it, nothing showed up on the X ray and we were running out of options. At this point she couldn’t keep anything down, not even the small amount I was feeding her through a syringe. I was running out of cash so I prayed about it. Went to Church and part of the message was “not to worry” so I didn’t, figured since it was inflammation to try the nopalea ( about 5 doses throughout the day and she held it down…by supper I added food in the syringe and she held it down….the NEXT day she held everything down that I gave her in the syringe and by the second meal was eating on her own…the NEXT day after that she was like a different CAT!!! As soon as I was up she was meowing to be fed…and meowed all day to keep feeding her…by the third day she she was actually visibly happier then before she got sick! There was a twirly chirp in her meow and a twinkle in her eye! It worked so well that I just used it on a clients dog that got knicked around the eye. The eye was swollen yesterday so the vet gave me BNP and wanted to give panalog and antibiotics as well but I opted for wild oregano for the infection both topically and orally and nopalea for the swelling. I have seen punctures and infections like that before, I have never seen one go down so fast in 24 hours! There is no puffiness left under the eye at all! I totally suggest having that oregano oil in your first aide kit for sure and I am totally loving this nopalea. If you click on my name I put a link to the site…there are some videos on there on it. I want them to test it on animals now!!!! My neighbours cats (2) had similar symptoms and both died. DOn’t know if it was the same thing but I am glad Mocha is happy and full now!

    Hey speaking of natural cures, does anyone else have any remedies they have found helpful?!?!

    • Great story ZooGal, thank you for sharing it. And I hope we get some answers to your question because this is a HUGE interest of mine. By the way, the allergies video came from a holistic pet website that is associated with, a super great holistic people doctor website. I highly recommend getting on Dr. Mercola’s email list. Every couple days he sends out a link with a half-dozen articles on interesting and controversial health topics he writes about. He is an awesome doctor and his emails are too.

  4. awesome video, it is just what we have to tell 90% of the people that come to our shop. Allergies can also cause ADD in dogs as well as aggression issues. BTW in regards to humans and possibly even dogs and cats a good inflammation fighter is the drink nopalea made out of a fruit that grows in the desert that fights inflamation. I totally believe that God has left us things on this planet to take care of ourselves. It seemed to help my elbow problem (haven’t played tennis with it yet so complete healing still needs to be confirmed with some real pressure) but am now extatic about it after it saved my cats life just last week! You can check it out on the site they gave me….it is not tested on animals though so I can’t guarantee safety but I tried it anyway as it was a life and death situation and wow did it work! Apparently works with asthma due to allergies as well. Let me know if anyone has tried it before (good or bad)

    • Hi “ZooGal”, nice to hear from you again. I am going to look into this fruit/drink! I have constant lower back discomfort and I am certain it is inflammation. I hear Cherries are a natural inflammatory too. You have inspired me to just write down a note to myself, “remember to take cherry juice every day” 🙂 Sticky notes are a great invention, aren’t they? I am curious how the juice saved your cat’s life. Do tell.
