    It is so hard to get due to the time it takes to make it. I have found some articles that originally stated it was a 3 year process to create and others here recently that say it now only takes 3 months per batch so it should be getting better soon.

    Hey Todd - @Marine91 - How is Harlea doing on the Apoquel? Its been a couple of weeks now. Tyson has the itchies now, so I wanted to call and see if I could get him some from Brittmoore.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    She is doing really good. The first 2 weeks she got half a pill twice a day and didn't scratch at all but maybe once or twice during that time and even then it was real quick and she was done. The 3rd week we dropped her to half a pill once a day like the vet said to do and by late evening she starts to scratch a bit but it isn't non-stop or super hard like she was doing. More like a normal dog that just has a little itch kind of thing. We are going to talk to the vet about adjusting the dose and go from there but over all it is a night and day improvement.

    Hey Todd

    Both of mine are on it too, but Wellie reacted the same way, at night, the itching would start. I was told because it metabolizes very fast. So someone advised me to split the daily dosage in two. Half in the morning, half at night. That seemed to do that trick, he stopped scratching. But, Wellie is getting one 16mg tab a day. Since Harlea is getting half a pill, it may be a pain to split. Still, it doesn't hurt to try.

    Good luck.

    Wow that is great! I have never heard of this but I'm going to ask my vet about it for my pit who has allergies and chews her feet and scratches her ears. Benadryl helps but this sounds much better especially if it can be used long term.
