Asked by Belia Ficht 2 years ago.
is there mercury in vaccines given for psychiatric reasons i was injected with haldol at a hospital and it was a medical mistake, they werent supposed to give me that since i dont have psychiatric diagnoses or unusual behavior. they gave me the wrong patients medication. i wasnt supposed to get a shot. anyway does this vaccine i got have the same harmful things and mercury as a disease vaccine given to children? what about some psych patients who act unruly and recieve a daily shot for a month straight because they refuse their medication. dosnt this expose them to mercury daily? or aluminum or what they use in vaccines what about a benadryl shot? does this have toxic stuff the flu shot has. Answered by Robin Ficklen 2 years ago.
The Haldol (and Benadryl) shot does NOT contain mercury. Nothing to worry about (other than the apparent incompetence of the hospital). The shot for the Haldol is simply an injected anti-psychotic drug, not a vaccine. I work at a place where people with schizophrenia and other mental health disorders take drugs like Haldol and it is true, those who have a history of deciding to refuse their pills or forget to take them will get that monthly shot of Haldol instead. Mercury and formaldehyde are used as the preservatives of many vaccines (you have to sign a waiver before you get the shot in which the CDC states this). Mercury is thought to cause conditions such as autism in children. However nowadays some vaccines such as the H1N1 vaccine also come in a mercury-free form. And ironically, Haldol is used to treat autism so Haldol's a solution not a cause of the problem. You might want to talk with the doctor about possible side effects the drug may have on you until it gets out of your system. I'm sure they'll be really helpful since they opened themselves up to a lawsuit [wink]. Answered by Denver Lacosta 2 years ago.
there is NO mercury in vaccinations. haldol is not a vax, but an anti psychotic drug. Answered by Ming Marusiak 2 years ago.
German Shepherd constantly itching?

I have a one and a half year old male German Shepherd Dog. He itches all the time! (it's not fleas) I'm pretty certain he has some type of allergies. I have taken him to the vet where he has received Depo-Medrol shots for the itching. The vet also told me that I could give him 1 to 2 mg of benadryl per pound. (he weighs about 80 pounds) Anyways, I have done the shots, the benadryl, switched to chicken free and grain free food and he is still itching. I guess the next step would be to have a full allergy test ran on him. Until then, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this or knew of any common allergens to GSD's. Also, if anyone knows of any better ways to control his itching and make him a little more comfortable. Thanks in advance. Answered by Genaro Sallah 2 years ago.
an allergy panel would tell you what the problem is. A lot of dogs are allergic to grains. I would try maybe switching to a completely grain free diet myself which it sounds like you have done. Innova Evo is probably one of the better processed dry/canned foods or if you are in Canada, Orijen red meat diet is better. I personally feed my shepherds raw food and they don't have any allergy problems but I know a lof of people don't want the hassle of raw or don't want to spend the money. However, a raw diet is most recommended especially for dogs that have allergy issues as you can more closely monitor what is going into your dog. Not to mention you then skip all of the preservatives and 'junk' that goes into the dry/canned foods to keep it stable for shelf life. A lot of animals are sensitive to that as well.... Answered by Theo Rihner 2 years ago.
It can be food, environmental, or a combination of the two types of allergies. There are no "common" allergens to any specific breed. A dog, like people, is allergic to whatever triggers the response. It could be anything. A steroid based drug will only work on environmental allergies. It won't make any difference to food allergies. Food based allergies would require a complete change of diet. If commercial dog food doesn't help, consider a raw diet. It's a lot of work and requires quite a bit of research to provide a nutritionally balanced diet. Ask the vet to try Vanectyl-P. It's a steroid based allergy med in pill form that you administer twice daily. At times when the allergy reaction is exacerbated, you may have to double or even triple the medication. At that time you'll need to add Benadryl into the mix. I have a Golden with multiple allergies, both food and environmental. I give her half a Vanectyl-P in her food twice a day. I also add some drops, Dr. Goodpet's Scratch Relief. In addition, I squirt on Omega 3 fatty acid which is good for her coat and fur. I buy it from my vet (who also tells me the proper dosage for her size). I also switched her to Natural Balance salmon and sweet potato kibble. I cannot switch my dog to a raw diet because I'm immune suppressed (transplant) and can't handle raw meat. Additionally, I'm also trying a holistic allergy medication in conjunction with the prescribed one. It's made by Natures Pet Herbs. I do notice a difference using it, that she has more relief than without it. This product is Canadian however, and I don't know if they ship out to the US which is where I assume you are. However, you can try Spirit Essences who has a combination of products that assist environmental allergy symptoms. Answered by Syble Hallam 2 years ago.
I'd wait for the full allergen test that will be done on your dog. This should help eliminate the allergy issue or at least find the allergen responsible for making your dog itch constantly. I've never had GSD's so I don't know what allergens are common to them. Answered by Hsiu Cluckey 2 years ago.

Thank you so much for your help! I am so concerned about my pet, but i can't imagine to have to keep going to all of these expensive vets for the rest of my life.

My German shepherd has skin allergies, and the vet has her on Benadryl and Omega-3 fish oil capsules. Both of them have helped her a lot: I get the vet versions of both, but the human versions work just as well and aren't that expensive. Talk to your vet and see if that's a possibility. I also try to keep her indoors as much as I can during peal allergy season, and I have a HEPA filter on the air conditioner and furnace unit. (I have allergies, too.) I feed her Science Diet for Sensitive Skin (again, at the vet's recommendation) and dog treats that are free of corn, red dye, and artificial preservatives. I keep her well-brushed, but I avoid all shampoos except the hypoallergenic stuff that the vet gives me. I try to keep the house vaccumed to remove allergins and frequently wash her kennel and bedding for the same reason. I make sure she has plenty of cool water to drink and that she stays active. I hope this will give you a few ideas about ways to manage your little guy's allergies. Good luck and a long, happy life to both of you! Answered by Bessie Luscombe 2 years ago.
I've had many dogs with allergy problems. Some of them I've been able to keep under control with medicated baths and antihistamines. But I've had a few that I have gone through the allergy injections with. They are pretty expensive, and don't always work. One of my dogs has skin allergies and I have to keep a t-shirt on her so that she can't scratch. She will scratch herself completely raw if I let her. I discovered that part of her scratching was just a bad habit. As soon as she couldn't scratch anymore, her skin cleared up. I did still give her medicated baths once a week and kept her on the antihistamines, as it was obvious that her allergies still bothered her. But the t-shirt seemed to help more than anything. I'm assuming your Yorkie has skin allergies, as most Yorkies have this problem. I don't know if the t-shirt idea will work for him, but if you can keep him from scratching it should help. Sorry I couldn't give you more advice, there just isn't much else that you can do. Answered by Malorie Jepperson 2 years ago.

Do Multi vitamins help with sinus/cold and flu?
I have just started taking multi vitamin tablets ( started taking them about 5 days ago ).. will they help to get rid of sinus problems in the head? or with cold and flu?
Asked by Wayne Watring 2 years ago.
A multivitamin is more preventative, it will help boost your immune system and make it harder for you to get sick in the future. I've got chronic sinus/bronchitis issues, and have found that taking medicines preventatively is the best way to keep it under control. I have severe issues, but some if not all of these things will help you. B-12 helps keep you well Vitamin C in large doses, the wafers will help you feel better zinc tablets mucinex extra strength, the regular tabs not the decongestant ones, I take this twice a day everyday, especially during high pollen months. This is an expectorant, it will thin mucus making it easier to expel. benadryl 1 capsule at night 25mg. This will dry up some of that secretions and relieve sinus pressure, also it helps you sleep ocean, otc nasal saline spray, this lubricates the mucus membranes and helps prevent nosebleeds from dry weather and sinus pressure ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺ recommend all of the above for you unless contraindicated for some reason I also use genteal otc eyedrops for chronic dry eye irritation, red eyes, itchy eyes, watery eyes etc. Its preservative free. I use 2x/day 1 drop each eye. The mucinex and benadryl are drying, plus I fight with chronic dry eye issues anyway. I use the moderate, it comes in mild also. I take prescription symbicort-its an inhaler opening up the lungs keeps bronchitis at bay preventil-rescue inhaler, asthma nebulizer-albuterol helps break up secretions in the lungs veramyst-prescription nasal spray decreases inflammation and opens up the nose making breathing easy I like this one, nasacort is good too. the codeine cough syrup to fight post nasal drip You may benefit from a prescription nasal spray like veramyst or nasacort Answered by Jaimie Satchell 2 years ago.

He didn't start scratching uncontrollably until he turned 8. He's been to the vet and the dermatologist. He's been on steroids and antibiotics. He's had several skin scrapes that have all come back negative for demadex mites(non-contagious one). I was told to change his food, and he's now eating EVO which is the TOP food on the market right now. Medicated bathes don't help what can I do to help him? He's very miserable Answered by Alleen Hernanders 2 years ago.
Also he has many open cuts around his muzzle from him constantly scratching. The sides of his mouth are all scabby from him scratching, and there's red itchy bumps on his back(those he can't scratch, but he does rub his back on the carpet) he has the same bumps on his sides that are bleeding from him scratching. He's also on revolution and is heartworm negative. All other internal parasite tests have also come back negative. $7,000 later and still no diagnosis please help. Answered by Elly Haun 2 years ago.

I'm so sorry for your boy. I also tried EVO for my itchy little bull terrrier-pit bull mix. She did have demodex as a pup (quickly caught and cured) and I hoped feeding a premium food would help boost her immunity. It helped some to use a food with no corn or artificial preservatives or colors but this same food caused my pit bull to develop very dry, flaky skin and a rough coat. As you know, you can't just bounce from this food to another--the transition must be extra slow. We tried all the other "top" foods as well as Science Diet and as well as every one of the better brands at PetSmart. We also began to launder their bedding, blankets, collars and harnesses in dye-free, scent-free products designed for sensitive-skin humans. Then, finally, we found a good match! Feeding Avoderm along with 4-5 (she's 56 pounds) Benadryl total every day (2 to 2-1/2 after breakfast and the same after supper) cleared up the itching and pinkness. I do put a few spoons of low-sodium broth on the kibble and mix it up to add extra flavor. The suffering dog is now fine and the pit got her glossy, soft coat back and put on obvious muscle mass. Even my white Bull Terrier actually looked shiny and her normally harsh coat got softer. I don't know if it was the avocado in it or just something that didn't irritate them, but I'm glad it works because it's easier to get (PetSmart) and costs less than the EVO did. I was frankly surprised by the results because the Avoderm formula I feed all of them has less protein (17%) than the EVO (I feed the lite formula because two of my four are terrible chowhounds. All get the same food, the athletic dogs just get more, the lazy ones less) and you would think more protein would be better for skin, coat and muscles. So I'm thrilled to have found this brand. Good luck! This can be such a frustrating problem and a sad pit bull is a truly pathetic sight. Answered by Zada Nelli 2 years ago.
Have the vet run an allergy test. Dogs can develop allergies over the years. Evo is a top food, but if he's allergic to chicken and you feed him Evo Chicken & Turkey, its not going to help. Answered by Natalya Jee 2 years ago.
