While we were at the vet for Tucker's ear infection, we got onto the topic of allergies. I told the vet that sometimes Tuck makes snorting sounds. He asked if he ever chews on his feet, and I said yes sometimes. I asked if he thought it might be allergies. He said that ear infections, chewing feet and the snorting are all typical signs of allergies. He said I could try giving him some childrens benadryl. He said that he also has some other things we could try if the benadryl didn't help. He said he thinks Tucker is too young for allergy testing right now. I don't think he has allergies bad (of course I'm not a doc). He doesn't chew his feet a lot just every now and then. This is his first (and hopefully only) ear infection. The snorting bugs me more than anything, although it doesn't seem to bother him. Also he does that reverse sneezing sound occasionally. That scares me too, but it only lasts a few seconds. Has anyone ever given your dog benadryl. Tucker didn't really like it (who can blame him). Then I tried mixing it in some peanut butter, which he loves, and he ate it all. But I don't know it mixing it with PB is good. Will it still have the same effect this way?
