I am so happy for you and, especially for Jenny. It is something when we
know our guides are miserable with something. Becky was scratching so bad,
and rolling on the floor. She was biting her legs, and she was in a
terrible spot. I took her to the vet and found out that she is allergic to
flea bites. They gave me some meds for and a spray that I put on a cloth
and wipe on her hindquarters. She does not scratch nearly as much and she
seems to be happier. So, I know how you feel. Good for you and Jenny!

With allergies being a topic of discussion, just wanted to follow up. This
past week, in particular, Jenny's been SO itchy... it got so bad that she
would rather scratch herself than see her favorite people at work yesterday.
It's so bad that people have been asking about her itching, especially the
past couple days. This morning, her eyes started running (thankfully, this
has happened before in the spring and fall, so I have eye drops on hand).
I had ordered no-name Claritin (loratidine) online, but it hasn't arrived
yet. In desperation, we took a trip to Wal-mart today, and I paid a pretty
premium for a few of the name-brand tablets.
Honestly, it's like a switch has turned off. The past three hours, the
scratching has almost stopped completely. I am so relieved, I could cry!
Jenn's ears have been a little smelly and mildly bothering her (likely
related to the sinus blockage), so I put some coconut oil in there to soothe
them, and she's stopped pawing at those now, too!
So, Claritin + Coconut oil for the win!
Daryl and the much much MUCH less itchy Jenny
