Ah you made it sound like his symptoms were similar to distemper so I asked.

Quote:
Once he's out of the apt and away from the cat, his nose is dry and he's a normal healthy puppy. The only symptoms he gets inside are slightly itchy eyes, clear watery nasal discharge, and sneezing if the cat's right in his face.

He's not on meds for allergies, other than benadryl. Why on earth would he be?
because he is allergic to a pet you have.... If you have a cat you really need to consider a regular allergy medication for him since he can have a reaction at any time.... Its really not fair to just wait for him to have a flare up and then give him benadryl....

The dog will have reactions even in the slightest form if cat hair is on the floor/furniture/bed/etc so regular allergy medication IMO is just humane at this point

And it's more fair to pump unnecessary chemicals into him to prevent mild allergy symptoms that aren't bothering him?

? how do you know they arent bothering him? I suggest you vacuum daily and keep the cat away from your dog and vice versa, give the cat a room and the dog a room.

I don't think there are too many allergy meds available to dogs, most vets would want to use steriods

I only have so much space in my house, lol.
Even if I had the room to keep them apart for the rest of his life, don't you think that would be a bit cruel? I've had the kitty since he was a baby, too, and he's a loved member of my family. Neither of them will be locked away in a room to spare anyone some sneezing.

His allergies are mild, and my vet and I think that mild allergy symptoms are less damaging to him in the long run than keeping him full of drugs for the rest of his life.

If his allergies were causing/ begin to cause chronic infections or anything actually harmful, I'll discuss that with my vet.

I guess am not understand your explanations of symptoms then...you said he HAS a runny nose, sneezes and recently got an eye infection...this sounded like he is always having these symptoms and his eye infection was too caused by your cat. Not, he sometimes shows a symptom or two here and there

i think that it is very obvious that you care about this dog i would be very interested to hear what your vet has to say about the knees/pasterns (lol, i know i'm not using the right word for that *shrugs*)
