One of my cats has had long term runny nose from allergy. No other systoms. I just clean it up, and keep it from being blocked. Should she be on a med, or just keep it clear like I am doing. She is now an inside cat, was born outside, and was out for several years.

DERMA-IONX has been helpful in feline allergies. As for dosing DERMA-IONX, I prefer to add 10 drops onto some canned food twice daily at breakfast and supper. If you need to you can give another 10 drops orally at bedtime. I also give probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9 to improve digestion and reduce inflammation. Improving the gut is essential in improving allergies.

    Feeding a grain free diet would be  wise at this time. The best flavors would be fish or turkey.  According to Chinese food therapy these are more cooling than chicken or lamb. Beef is neutral.   With allergies the body is more warm and so choosing foods that are cooler is better.  If you think your cat is allergic to a protein do not give it.     If you give your cat any  treats please check the label.  It is not easy to avoid chicken in a cat's diet.  

    If your water contains chlorine offer purified water instead. Please keep us updated on your progress.
