There are many ways to control allergies in any size dog.

1.  Bathing 2 times per week with a medicated shampoo (environmental allergens pass through the skin).
2.  Allergy testing and subsequent immunotherapy (allergy shots)
3.  Western medications, such as Antihistamines, Steroids, Atopica, and tranquilizers.
4.  Chinese Herbal Medications, such as Kan Herbal company's  Derma Wind Release, or Jing Tang Herbal company's Four Paws Damp Heat, and others.
5.  Topical preparations: Lian Coptis powder (extremely bitter)
6.  Acupuncture
7.  Controlling skin parasites (fleas, demodex, scabies), dermal yeast infections, and bacterial skin infections, which can occur at the same time as allergies.
8.  Novel Protein/limited ingredient trial if food allergies are suspected.
9. E-Collar's and bandaging feet.

A compounding pharmacy can formulate a proper dose of any medication for your tiny dog.

Many herbal formula's are available online, but it would be best to consult a holistic vet for the best outcome.
