My 6 year old basset hound Stanley has various allergies which cause him to have skin problems - his skin becomes very itchy, sore and smelly. When we got him (he's a rescue dog) his poor skin was so sore and infected that he was bleedng virtually all over. After several vsits to a specialist veterinary dermotologist he's a different dog - everything is under control and although his maintenance regime takes me approx 30 mins twice a day he's happy, comfortable and a bit naughty on occasions ....:))

We went to see the specialst today as he's had a slight flare up. She's not worried and can sort him easily but suggested we order him an allergy vaccine from Holland as this may stop further flare ups - no guarantees though but if there's a chance it may help him then we will definitely give it a try.

I'm just wondering if anyone on here has used this vaccine for their dog or knows of anyone that has. Would be interested to here if it helped.....

Here's Stanley resting after his tiring day of doing very little rolleyes

Archie has a monthly allergy injection which has been made for him in Holland. The consultant did all the allergy testing to find out what his specific allergies were then had it made for him. It is sent to my vet and either I can inject it or they can. My consultant is Sue Patterson who has a lot of stuff published about skin problems, and it has really helped. I hope it can help Stanley too. x

Thanks so much. Stanley has had his allergy testing and his vaccine is also being made to his specific needs so sounds as though it's the same as Archies. So glad it's helped your boy - fingers crossed it'll help Stanley too ........
