Default Quercetin for Allergies?

My Lily has allergies which have been well-controlled by using Benadryl...however I have to give it to her 2X day to control her symptoms. I hate giving her this all the time. I would like to try a more natural product...and I found Quercetin as a holistic remedy...has anyone heard of this or tried it? It has anti-inflammatory properties and also blocks the release of histamine...Lily wheezes as well as has itchy skin...I am also trying a new shampoo for her, BedHead anti-itch..it has chamomile, aloe, and tea tree oil.. has anyone heard of or used these products?

April i've used it for my kids with good results. I ordered from AllerEase Quercetin For Dog Allergies, just let them know how much Lily weighs and they will enclose the correct dosage for you to use.

Tea Tree Oil is toxic if ingested so be sure to rinse well and do not let the dog lick the suds.

Benadryl really has to be given at a full dose every 8 hours to be effective....and it is not the most effective antihistamine for most dogs.

Thanks, Jackie...I think this shampoo has only a small amount of tea tree oil, but I will be careful..Fortunately, my Lily does not lick the suds...

...thanks for the tip...I just ordered this for Archie and Abbey. Both have allergies. Archie is just always itchy when I scratch him and Abbey likes her feet constantly.

Addie has allergies. But, I don't know what is causing them. I've spoken with my vet about doing testing, just haven't done it as I hate her getting poked. Did everyone else go through testing before you used this product?

Pat i found that doing a vinegar rinse after rinsing the shampoo off during Chloe's bath also helped and also rinsing the feet a couple times a day with a vinegar rinse to help remove the allergens.

I didn't do allergy testing to find out what mine are allergic to, i know they have environmental and seasonal allergies. I found out about Quercetin from Dr. Becker's newsletter that i receive daily. Valuable Nutrients for Seasonal Cat and Dog Allergies

Lynn since Oliver is on other meds for his allergies i would check with a holistic vet before trying Quercetin.

Exclamation Update-good news!

I ordered the AllerEaze for Pets from AskAriel... got it really quick..I started Lily on it the same day..I thought it would take a couple of weeks..From the first day, there has not been a sniffle or any scratching...I am totally in shock! God bless Debbie(SugarBears) and Praise the Lord! It is like I have a different dog..no kidding..Lily is more relaxed, more playful, and happier..she has been giving me the "lovey-dovey" look..you know what I mean..the look that turns your heart to mush..She just feels so good! I was advised to keep her on a probiotic for best results which I already do for her immune-mediated IBD. Each capsule contains 200mg of Quercetin and Nettles Leaf...both have anit-inflammatory properties...this stuff really works well..better than any drug and so far, no side efffects..as for the PetHead anti-itch shampoo, I give that a . The Hypo-allergenic Earthbath has aloe in it..so we will stick with that...just wanted to pass this info along.
