    Elmo was scratching so much the Vet put him on Apoquel 16mg. Have any of you had experience with this Med. for your 4 legged Babies? I just hate it that My Big Boy Elmo is on so much Med. I will post another picture of Elmo this weekend. I will see if the Vet can shave his neck for me. Thank You Again Precious People for caring about My Elmo.

    Harlea is on it and it is a god send. Within hours of her first dose she had pretty much stopped scratching. We are 3 weeks in and her dosage has been reduced so we see a bit of scratching but it isn't bad at all. All around I feel that the treatment is worth it for sure.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Poor sweet boy - I'm so sorry Elmo and you have to go through this, I'm sorry, I can't be of any help because I have no experiences with hot spots - - I'm praying that he will feel better very soon and that the medication helps rapidly

    Praying that Elmo is healing nicely now, Susan.

    Finn was on Apoquel also and it helped with his itching TREMENDOUSLY. I hope Elmo will feel some relief very soon! (((((((HUGS)))))))

    How is Elmo doing today?

    Hershey has been on Apoquel for almost 3 years now. When i got him he was in such great shape but I was told he went through hell for the longest time until Apoquel solved all of his issues... I attempted to take him off just to see if his allergies were environmental as he spent his first years in Delaware and I'm in New York..within 2 days he started getting red welts on his underside and between his toes so I put him back on. I'm not crazy about the idea of him being on meds either but considering the alternative it's never been a concern. It really does work wonders for him and it was so hard to get. Until recently I had to get it shipped from his old vet as it wasn't readily available here. Now it seems the supply has met the demand. Good luck with it I hope it works as well for you on Otis!

    Hotspots can take weeks to clear up fully.... were you able to get the areas shaved?
