ALLERGIC SKIN DISEASE THERAPY

ALLERGIC SKIN DISEASE THERAPY

  • Allergic Skin Disease Medication must be individualized to your particular pet's clinical signs and causes of the allergic reaction.
  • Wait 48 hours before bathing <animal> if FRONTLINE TOPSPOT™ drops have been applied.
  • Scrub in Medicated Shampoo and leave on skin ten (10) minutes before rinsing. Repeat every 7-10-l4 day. Scrub in well--remember it is a skin problem--not a hair problem! Always Use COOL Water to decrease itching.
  • Apply FRONTLINE TOPSPOT™ 48 Hours After Bath. Do NOT Bathe For 48 Hours AFTER Application For Best Long-Acting Results.
  • Spray LIGHTLY with prescribed Coat Moisturizer once daily- rub in well. Don't overuse. (Do NOT Apply 48 Hours Before Or After TOPSPOT™ Application)
  • Give Antibiotics as directed by your veterinarian for skin infection.
  • Apply FRONTLINE TOPSPOT™ once each month For Flea & Tick Control.
  • Recheck in 14 days.
  • Treat House and Yard at least once each month for flea control. House must be treated every 7 - 14 days for 6 weeks if a severe flea problem exist.
  • Observe the <animal> ‘s stool for any sign of tapeworms, which are spread by fleas. Tapeworms pass short, white segments in the stool which look similar to rice.
  • Give fatty acid / zinc supplement as directed.
  • Labs on thyroid function can be run in the clinic.
  • Fungal culture results usually take 10-14 days.
  • Notify the clinic if <animal>’s condition recurs following treatment, if scratching continues for more than five (5) days, if skin appears infected, or your pet does not look healthy.
  • Feed only HIGH QUALITY FOOD. PREMIUM foods often will solve the problem when food allergies are involved. LAMB & RICE DIETS works well in many cases involving food allergy.
  • Treat all other pets for fleas. (Use FRONTLINE TOPSPOT™ on ALL Pets.)
  • Consider Allergy Testing for Recurrent Cases. Many cases can be helped significantly
