The first thing is to make sure Oskar is in a good flea control...if that is being done, then this allergic reaction is caused by other things in his environment which cannot be controlled. When Oskar starts this scratching, give him Benadryl, available at the pharmacy over the counter, at 1 mg per pound of Oskar’s weight every 12 hrs. This will help stop this reaction and ease the scratching. If this is not enough, then you will have to return to your veterinarian for stronger medications...these are only by prescription which we are not able to give without an actual physical exam by law. In most cases, the Benadryl given for one week to 10 days will be enough to stop the terrible scratching that bothers poor Oskar.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know how Oskar is doing and if I can answer any other questions. Thanks!!
