there a
virus that could cause it? Any other ideas? If it's an allergen
the vet
isn't going to find anything anyways so your ideas would be
appreciated...Sometimes it seems the spray on conditioner

You could try changing the laundry soap you wash the bedding in,
maybe the
cleaner you use to clean with. Do you use a powder to vaccum your
rugs with.
Change one thing at a time so you know what it is. Also brushing
them daily
helps. All of mine hate the spray conditioner. With brushing mine
every day
and after an outing, they never need a conditoner or perfume for
control. It could even be the bath shampoo you are using. My boys
hate two
certain kinds of shampoo. They all love (and works best for me and
them all
around) baby shampoo.
