My one-year-old pomeranian has suffered from the itchies for about five months. He has dug out his entire beautiful, thick undercoat but otherwise his top coat looks shiny and healthy. The vet put him on a course of clavamox (sp?) and prednisone (sp?). This took care of his fever and the red bumps that were all over his tummy. Now, three weeks later, we're back to digging and the red bumps. We are all miserable. The prednisone made him act out of character and he was up all nights until he was weaned off. What can I do for him besides taking him back in for meds?
