Re: Spotty Head

I wouldn't really like to give any dosage advise. All I can say is that my girl is 23kg (51lbs) and I give her 1 of the standard antihisitime twice daily, but that depends on what I am treating and how long I need it for.

She takes a reaction to something at this time of year (I think its larvae in puddle where she drinks etc) and she gets bitten on her head and chin etc.

I just give her 1 tablet (I can't find the box but you can buy them in Tesco or any chemist - not a named brand). If it is severe, I give her one, twice a day until it improves.

Again though, each dog and each breed is different and of course their different ages count too. I wouldn't advise giving your lab any antihisitime without checking with your vet first, just in case it reacts to any other medication etc.

Sorry if that doesn't help much!

Re: Spotty Head

Sorry i missed this one earlier. Sand flies are little buggars for biting so it could possibly have been a reactin to them. I saw some people on hols with sand fly bites and they were large, red and blistery looking and I could only imagine how painful and itchy they were!!!

Glad things are improving tho

Re: Spotty Head

The rash on her head came back in last few weeks - first time since last summer. I think you are right on the sandflies Amanda, it's that or larvae things in puddles.

The rash all over her body I mentioned earlier actually ended up being linked to her seperation anxiety! When she got stressed she came out in hives and now, as she has recovered since Christmas, the rash has completely gone - go figure!
