Barney's Earth Day Miracle

 

This last year or so our little Barney has had such horrible allergies. His skin would get very red and he'd scratch and bite himself constantly and was always hyper. No matter what we tried we couldn't help him - and trust me we tried a lot of things.  We started getting him allergy shots at the Vet's office every couple of months for the past year. And the shots did work, at first.  Recently the shot lasted only about 2 weeks or so which is not good.  I'm not a fan of taking or giving unnecessary drugs to animals or humans for that matter as some times that will create another problem.  We knew we had to find another approach....but what?

Last week we talked about if there were any chemicals used in our yard by the landscapers to make him allergic? Or maybe, he was picking up something from other yards while out  for his walks? We went through everything that had been done differently this past year or so but nothing made sense to us - except other yards and blooming plants and shrubs.  He had been fine for 5 years with no signs of allergies up until the last year or so so it was perplexing that it had gotten so bad for him.

 

We decided to try washing off his paws and legs and to wipe him down all over with a paper towel and water - every time he went out and came in. Simple solution, maybe! Mr. Barney is the kind of dog that likes to go in and out - A LOT - so we knew that wasn't going to be so easy for us while we were both working in our offices! But we were willing to do whatever we needed to do to help out this little guy.

 

The first time we tried it LOW and BEHOLD he settled down and quit licking and biting himself and his skin turned a perfect pink within an hour. We kept wiping him down every time he came back in the house all last weekend and Alleluia -it worked like a charm! Today as I write this post Mr. Barney is peacefully asleep  in my office for about an hour now (yea) which is a first in a very long time! Maybe I can get some work done now...like perhaps get back to blogging!!

 

 

Barney Sleeping Peacefully - Finally!

 

 

 

We are both so so happy for our little guy Barney!
