Question
Hi Carol. I was wondering if there were any developments on treating skin allergies on jack russel tummies. I too have been up and down to vets with no luck. Just costing a fortune and soon after meds are up does it return.  I just wish there was something i could put on their tummies to soothe the rash. Eliminating everything from food to possible dust or grass allergies etc and no luck.

Answer
Hi Jenny,

You said you've tried changing food?  Wheat seems to be the biggest culprit out there and most foods use it in their recipe's -  Hoping your pup is on a grain free diet.

Newest product out there with excellent reviews:  Maybe it will work for you.

Forgive my lateness in this reply, my dad has been very sick in the hospital and I hadn't opened my mail in 2 weeks.   Best of luck with your Jack.

Questions on "Jack" Russell Terriers pertaining to their health, well being, general questions on breed, types, size, shape, health, personalities, behavior problems, genetics, so called standard, what to look for when purchasing, and if you would be a good match with this wonderful and unique dog. Too many times, people buy jack puppies because they are absolutely adorable, and then a few months down the road they own this dog that they know nothing about and haven't prepared or trained for. I love the breed and everything about them and hope to provide some help, education and advice to current and prospective owners. I am a veterinary technician, dog trainer and breeder of Jack Russells.

Experience

I own four Jack Russells and I have been working with dogs for 30 years. My personal interest is in helping educate people about the very special qualities of this breed. I advocate education and research of the breed before you buy one, they are wonderful pets if suited with the right person/family. Do your homework first! I can help you determine if you are a good match with this breed. I want people to know also that there are two types of Jack Russells, the Parson hunter with long legs and the Shortie or Russell Terrier and their very distinct differences. I also hope to allay fears about their CRAZY reputations - which is not always the case. ~*~*~*IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ*~*~*~ PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT ENDORSE THE SALE OF ANY JACK RUSSELLS OR JACK RUSSELL PUPPIES THAT MAY BE ADVERTISED ON THIS PAGE.
