(La Mesa, California)
I have a 9 year old Jack Russell terrier and she is allergic to just about everything. I got her when she was 4 months old and she was always very happy and playful. Now all she does is sleep. For her allergies I give her 1/2 a steroid every morning. This seems to control the scratching, however she has gained some weight. Could this have anything to do with her depression? Please help, as she is my baby and I am very worried about her.
