Hi All,
I am new to this forum, I am been hunting around looking for places for help. I have a staffy (stan) he is three years old and is allergic for Dust mites. Luckily I have pet insurance and he currently has Atopica tablets every other day and an injection once a month. I didn't know if anyone has had any similar problems with there staffy's and has any other solutions.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us. I'd love to see pics of your dog. We do love to see pics. I hope there is somebody here who has some suggestions for your dog's allergies.

Hi TARN and

I've never had a dog who was allergic to dist mites, but I had the problem myself years ago. Really the best thing that helped was getting rid of carpet if at all possible and having wood floors. But you may have better luck getting more answers if you spot the question in the healthcare section.

Welcome to the forum

I have no experience of pet allergies but i suggest you try Bestpetpharmacy.com or other homeopathic sites to see if they can offer advice
