This ain't no Nelly impersonation!

Mama put a bandaid on me because I was scratching my eyes out soo bad I EVEN HAD BLOOD COMING OUT (Jessie thinks it makes me look tough!)

Ya see I am allergic to dust and even though Mama keeps the place tidy - the furnace is on all day shooting out dust everywhere! So I scratch more than usual!

Mama has tried everything Fish oils, baths, cyclasporin, and steroids (which I have been on since I was a wee baby) but lately it has been getting worse. Mama can't wait for the warmer weather so she can open the window and I can spend more time outside!

The Pic of me in the pink t-shirt (hey no laughing - was taken last winter when I was a baby because I scratch less when I wear it).
The bandaid didn't last long - I took it off - and Mama couldn't catch me to put another t-shirt on - besides - My puppy dog sad eyes work EVERYTIME!

I have the itchies too! Mom gives me some Well Coat caplets, but that's about it. I hope you feel better soon!

Oh.. poor Jake. If you wear booties will that help in preventing you to scratch??

Uh oh... sounds like it's time for the (much dreaded) E-collar treatment..
Hope you feel less itchy soon (and pls don't scratch your eyes.. it sound owieee..)

Owie, that sounds nasty. I'm sure it's almost impossible not to itch though. Tell mum you need lots of bones & treats as distraction!

Oh nooo! blood coming out of your eye, yucky! You must be one tough doggum. I get the itches too, but under my belly, I lick and lick and scratch till it turns real red. Nothing works...big fat bummer!

Poor Jake! Maybe your mum could buy you some googles to wear in the house when the furnace is on! I don't blame you for taking that bandaid off! I've taken of in seconds myself!
PS: Thanks for visiting my log!

Hi Jake,
My mom says the caplets are made by Wellness. They have borage seed oil, oil of evening primrose, and flax seed oil. They might be good for itchy skin for can give it a try!

Are there some eye drops for allergies like humans have that doggies can take? That might help. Our Mama gives us salmon oil on our food. Mama is allergic to dust mites too, it's a tricky allergy to battle. We have wood floors in almost all of the house. She bought one of those purple animal dyson vacuum cleaners. (works very well)You could also have your Mama wipe you down with a damp cloth each morning. That might help too. Hope you feel better soon!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
