We did the shots for several months before Trouble refused to take them anymore. One day she decided she'd had enough and after bending the second needle, I agreed. It was going to be much worse to have a broken needle surgically removed than to just stop. We saw some relief with the first batch of serum, the two following batches never were good, never got the dosage regulated or working for her. Trouble had grass allergy, trees, dust, mites, smoke, wool, and too many others to list. She was miserable, we were miserable. She would lick her feet until they were raw, oozing, and bleeding.
Just as we (and she) were at our wits end, we found a vet who recommended trying Atopica. It was the one thing that finally made a marked difference for her. It was the first time ever we didn't have to give her antihistamines daily. The Atopica isn't an inexpensive medication, but as time goes on, the dosage is decreased. I would try it if nothing else has worked.
My sincere best wishes. There are several of us here who have fought the allergy battle, I'm sure some of the others will jump in. Allergies are no fun.
