I guess then she doesn't get freaked out about bobcats, skunks, etc? Last time Indy was like that at night, I let her to go out to the yard to the bathroom, and she came back in skunked frown

I dunno, just making up stuff here....

No. And there is a skunk somewhere nearby. I learned that the hard way when I had the AC set to pull in outside air instead of recirc the air in the bedroom. I woke up at 5am with my eyes watering.

Maybe she just pulled something and that caused her to yelp. She has been acting squirrely for the last few months. Lunging and barking at the door when the kids come home. She gets clear to the door before she realizes it's them. She's restless. She goes and stands by the door even though she's just been out. When we let her out, she doesn't leave the porch and wants back in. I think her senses are going and she's just not as aware of what is going on around her.

I'm thinking of trying to put her back on the curcumin. That is supposed to be more effective than an antihistamine. We're watching Sierra growth. If that is determined to be a mast cell then I'm going to call that vet in TN that injects the antihistamine around the growth to see what their thoughts are. My vet didn't want to do that with Banshee because he said doing that could cause a histamine reaction and we didn't want to risk that but Sierra is young and strong.

I really like quercitin, but it's controversial when used with the abx cipro, which max is on. For my allergies, I don't notice a difference with the curcumin, but I do with the quercitin.

The other thought, is that Hylands has a homeopathic remedy called Hayfever. It helps us both here a ton! I can't use it on Max right now because it interferes with what his homeopathic vet is doing - otherwise we would still both be using it, 3 tablets a day.

Nothing like trying to juggle multiple dog health issues!

Is that an antihistamine? If we're upping the benadryl then it's just a matter of time before her tolerance of it is to high for it to be affective.

quercitin will act as an antihistamine. I might try that instead of upping the benadryl, only because the benadryl can make a person/dog loopy or tired, and also interefere with their ability to pee (or is that only in males?)??
