There is always the allergy shot or drop. Here is a link to continue your research:

Maggie has very severe allergies. We tried just about everything (including Apoquel, which did not work for her). Eventually we did a skin test at the dermatologist and due to the long list of unavoidable allergens, started immunotherapy. She's been getting injections for about a year now and has shown some (though minimal so far) improvements.
We chose to do immunotherapy because we decided we didn't want her to be medicated forever. Immunotherapy is supposed to train the dogs immune system to deal with the allergens. It takes a while to begin working and until it does she needs to be on a very minimal dose of steroids, but very soon we expect to be able to take her off of the steroids.
Just another option
PS- I drive an hour to our dermatologist and ALWAYS bring Winston for moral support (and because we don't want to leave him alone)!

$171 is cheap! I took Bunny and it cost over $400.. Same thing a few slides, a quick look over and a lot of talking. I don't get the purpose, if I were to get her the patch test the purpose would be to do the injections and there is not a strong chance of that curing anything anyway. I had best results with trial and error, and doing things like adding Vit. e and salmon oil (omega oil) and daily rinses/foot rinses. A follow up appointment was $210 for sale thing. I am also a crazy boxer mom, but, aren't we all?!
