Hello, Daryl.
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!
Elise and Becky

Hi, everyone!
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
